Staying at Hendersyde – thinking creatively!?
Being inspired by the wonderfully talented creative community in The Borders, I’m delighted to highlight opportunities to take part in their courses.
Maggie has opened a fully equipped jewellery teaching studio (& shop) in the new Cornhill on Tweed Centre. Offering a variety of classes including silversmithing, enamelling and beading (from beginners upward)
Eoin organises the courses in a delightful setting at Harestanes – you are spoiled for choice – as long as you book early! Courses include … Rustic Stool Making, Hedge Chair Making, Shave Horse Making, Pole Lathe Turning, Sitooterie Bench, Timber Tokens, Wood Carvings, Spoon Making, Big Tree Artworks, Bark Paintings, Tree Rings, Old Wood Cave Wall
Peter and Andrew run glass making experiences, with one-to-one tuition, taking about 1½ hours to make a paperweight and a small bowl, using whichever colour you like!
If you are an ambitious home baker who would like learn chocolate craft skills beyond your wildest dreams!
Peebles is about an hour further up The Tweed Valley from Hendersyde
