Crafty Glamping at Bradley Hall Rural Escapes

New for 2021 – Art & Craft Workshops at Bradley Hall Rural Escapes


We are excited to announce that from 26th June our glampers (& non-glampers) will be able to take part in a range of creative workshops when they stay with us. There will be a range of art & craft activities held in The Old Dairy –  in small groups of 4 max.

These are a great add-on to your stay. Try your hand at something new… or if you’re an experienced crafter or artist come and join us in some relaxing “me-time” with like-minded folk.

No experience is necessary!

Courses will be led by Jo, a professional artist and designer with over 30 years of experience.

Bespoke group workshops can be arranged from the list of activities we provide, on a date to suit.

Materials and refreshments are included in the price.

Or call/text Jo: 07921 467 290

Please Note:
Payment in advance, please. If you cancel your stay a refund will be given less a £15 admin fee. However, if your space can be filled a full refund will be given.

Intro to Gouache: 3hrs. 10am-1pm. £25pp

Exploding Box Papercrafting: 3hrs. 10am-1pm. £25pp

Immerse yourself in the wonderful art of papercrafting. Learn how to make an exploding box (a lidded box which falls open when you remove the lid). You’ll spend a few hours immersed in a huge selection of patterned, glittery and coloured card, paper and glue. Wonderful!

Saturday 24th July or Wednesday 28th July

Paint Like a Monk- Illuminated Letters: 3hrs. 10am-1pm £30pp
