Below are the short courses we are running this year. Click on any of them for further information. 

Natural Dyeing Short Courses

The woods is the perfect place for hand dyeing, as it is essential to have an outdoor fire to make our dye baths. Learn about local fleece, forage for plant dyes and use a mixture of houshold natural dyes and foraged plant dyes to produce a rainbow of colours.

Prehistoric Cookery

Enjoy a weekend outdoors learning prehistoric techniques of cooking. Build an outdoor pit oven, forage for greens, learn to bake bread on hot stones and enjoy a nettle beer at the end of the day! (Suitable for adults and children).

Feltmaking Short Courses

The Highlands of Scotland are the perfect place to study the traditional craft of felt making. Our courses teach you craft skills in a stunning setting; Higher Crochail wood in Strathglass, on the edge of Glen Affric and near to Loch Ness.
