Woodworking Courses

The Green Wood Guild offers a diverse range of courses, workshops and taster sessions in all aspects of green woodwork, including masterclasses led by Barnaby Carder (Barn the Spoon) and Nic Westermann – two world respected leaders in the craft. All based on ancient woodworking skills & techniques, working with traditional hand tools, and using wood straight from the tree, whilst it is still fresh.

Pottery Classes

Jess Jos oversees a small team that teaches wheel thrown pottery classes, offering courses for the complete novice and more experienced maker.

Classes and courses run on evenings and weekends with each student having their own wheel to use.

Students learn to make tableware progressing from cups, bowls and plates before masterclasses in more advanced shapes such as the teapot.

Gift vouchers available for all classes.

If you have any questions about Pottery classes please contact Jess or for information about courses please visit her website.

Knitting Courses


Nic and Jane showing how it’s done

We are two textile teachers who have been friends for many years. Having taught separately over the last decade, we have now come together at one of our favorite places, Stepney City Farm, to teach a series of classes and take part in a number of events on the farm. We meet in the cafe every Thursday 11-2pm for an informal knitting club, just turn up!

To contact us or to book a course please email us on Nic Knitting

Natural Fabric Dying Courses

Moderneccentrics are a creative partnership made up of Ross Belton (textile artist) and Jonathan Dredge (print maker and photographer).

Our practice is all about sustainability and trying to have as little impact on the environment as possible. With his background in textiles, Ross works with natural dyes which are a traditional and environmentally sound alternatives to the chemical dyes used in mass production. Natural dyes are gaining popularity again, partly due to an interest in the movement towards eco-friendly practices and sustainability, alongside the resurgence of hand crafted products.

Starting with natural dyes, our workshops will also explore contact-printing, shibori techniques, mark-making with natural inks and handmade brushes, creative weaving, experimental basketry and felting.

We are going to be delivering regular Monday workshops in the Gallery Space during ‘term time’, starting Monday 10 September. Look out for weekend ‘taster’ experiences too. Read more.
