Creative Courses

Throughout the summer we run a series of creative courses at Stillingfleet Lodge. These highly popular courses are run by visiting experts.

We use the garden both as the backdrop and inspiration for a variety of practical arts, crafts and photographic workshops.

Many courses sell out quickly, so early booking is recommended.

All courses include entry to the garden plus welcome coffee and biscuits. All materials are provided unless stated.

Please note that workshop fees cannot be refunded if cancelled less than 7 days prior to date of workshop.
