Craft, Cookery & Gardening Courses 2014
Courses and workshops are offered at the Manor House Stables for those who wish to come for a day, or they can be included as part of your holiday. Our craft courses are held mainly in the old part of the Stables originally used for stabling the hoses and are full of character with original mangers, hayracks and stall partitions. If you come on one of our bread, jam, hand-made chocolate or other cookery courses, these are held in our lovely farmhouse kitchen.
We have just posted up our new willow and other weaving courses for 2014. There are some really great courses starting in March that range from learning to weave baskets using materials collected from the garden and hedgerows through to weaving hurdles, obelisks, trellises, hearts, vegetable baskets, birds and other animals!
Our first jam making course of the season will be on the 25th March to coincide with Mother's Day (30th March). Why not treat your mum to a day making unique and creative jams and preserves?
More courses to follow soon!
What you do when you come on one of our courses
All courses last for one day and include a lovely two-course home-made lunch with wine. In the winter lunch is normally roast vegetables (from our own garden or local organic box scheme) with Lincolnshire sausages and freshly baked bread, followed by apple crumble and cream. The maximum number of people on the workshops is small (4 to 6) to ensure everyone has time to create something special to take home. We use only the best materials and all are included in the price of the course. And most of all you will definitely have a great time on these courses - please have a look on our Facebook page to see what we've got up to on previous courses!
