Bespoke Crafting Workshops

Welcome to our bespoke craft workshop database, designed for those who would like to bring private groups to Birkhill. These crafting experiences are ideal not only for learning new skills but for being creative together in a social way. Suitable for hen party attendees, baby shower groups, reunions, family outings, self-care & team-building days and good old-fashioned catch-ups with friends.

These workshops have all been tried and tested at Birkhill and are largely delivered by local artists and instructors - with a few from further afield thrown in. 

If you are interested in booking one of the following sessions, contact us in the first instance at We will take some details and then liaise with the artist to organise the proposed session.

If you are an artist looking to be included on our database, contact Lara Armitage directly:
