in the summer of 2017 WE were THRILLED TO HAVE A GUEST WEAVER FROM THE UK TEACHING AT THE FARM FOR SIX DAYS!

IN JUNE, 2014 WE TRAVELLED TO ENGLAND AND WALES TO TAKE SOME PRIVATE WEAVING WORKSHOPS WITH MEL. SHE IS AN AMAZING TEACHER, AN INCREDIBLE WEAVER AND we know you will enjoy her classes. 

 Mel has worked on many large and exciting projects including the Coronation Arches, a BBC set for the new Dr. Who spin off 'CLASS' and many outdoor sculptural installations for the RHS and others. Read about our time with Mel on our blog...


 
 
 

 
 

We provide hot beverages, water and cookies for every class. On full day workshops you may bring a lunch or opt-in for a delicious catered meal by Chef Tina at On the Side Gourmet. We can design an event for groups of eight to ten. If you are planning a weekend trip let us know.

The Northumberland Hills is a beautiful area for touring by car or bicycle. We can suggest local restaurants and lodging if you would like to stay locally. We will also arrange semi-private and private lessons for those interested, please contact us for dates and pricing.
