One of London’s best-kept secrets, our rural arts and crafts workshops are free to attend (no booking required) and explore a different activity each month.
Craft sessions are led by our resident rural artists here at the Farm and give you the chance to try a new skill – and take what you make home with you. If you have ever fancied trying your hand at blacksmithing, woodwork, pottery, knitting and more this is your opportunity!
All ages welcome (adults and children) but young children may not be able to take part, and those watching must do so from a safe distance away. Some activities are only suitable for 8 years+.
