The Vintage Craft School is a new and exciting collaboration of all things vintage. It aims to foster an ongoing creative community while sharing time-honored art and craft techniques, teaching basic traditional skills and the popular art of up-cycling. The Vintage Craft School not only offers the chance to learn traditional skills from experienced tutors and create beautiful art objects in a heritage setting; it brings back the social, interactive aspect of ‘hand-making’ as a therapeutic pastime.
