What Can I Expect

Get creative in a stunning setting on these craft courses in Yorkshire! Home for the Uncles Creative Workshop is a renovated farmhouse in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. With collie dogs running around the courtyard and sheep grazing in the fields of the beautiful Walden Valley right outside the door, we can't think of a better place to get your artistic juices flowing!

These crafty workshops are the brainchild of Art teacher Katherine Ralph. She and her husband decided to escape the rat-race and settle in the traditional farming community of Burton-sum-Walden near Wensleydale. A lovely bespoke workshop was built and Uncles Workshop was born.

What is utterly delightful about these creative workshops and craft courses is that it has an artist's retreat kind of feel to it all. It's all very relaxed, with a proper North Yorkshire welcome guaranteed (the kettle is always on for tea!), time to chat and teaching that's very much undertaken at your pace.

The workshop itself is light and airy, with those stunning Yorkshire Dales views framed like landscape paintings by the windows. It's all designed to be inspiring and it certainly succeeds. Even if you haven't sat down and tried anything remotely artistic since your school days, these courses are stimulating and very much encourage expressiveness and originality.

Batik, glass fusing, litho printing, wood block carving and etching are all on the programme at this art centre. Many of these artistic methods are centuries old and still use the traditional tools, yet even today they produce startlingly vibrant results that will really impress you.

We think these classes are quite possibly one the best arty things to do in the Yorkshire Dales, so it's of little surprise that these one day courses very often sell out well in advance, so be sure to get booked in for your workshop of choice as soon as you can. Class sizes are kept small, to maintain the friendly approach to the teaching and everything you need is provided for you, right down to a lovely lunch with many of the ingredients coming straight from the farm. All you have to bring to these craft courses in Yorkshire is yourself.
