What's On

We are passionate about recycling and traditional crafts. We will run very affordable workshops and activities and will ‘hold your hand’ every step of the way to create a holiday master piece! Honest! Providing an enriching experience that leaves you and the children proud and chuffed at the talent you never knew you had. Such courses would include Silk painting, marbling, vintage glamping sewing crafts, painting classes, decoupage art, fun with recycling, bush craft and weaving classes.

There will be a limited number of places for these, so booking prior to arrival is recommended. Residents do take priority but you do not have to be staying on the site to take advantage of these classes, so join us one wet Cornish day, you will be assured of a warm welcome. We will try to run these courses as often as we can but they are governed by minimum numbers so please phone in advance.
