6 hr


Day Trip

Group Tour

Look at the tradition of tapestry in the Arts and Crafts movement and the designs of William Morris. Work on a bird or flower motif using tent stitch and cross-stitch and perhaps make a start on a larger piece to work on as the nights begin to draw in.

Taught by textile artist Helen Barnes.

Itinerary Details


'Travel through time and learn a new skill along the way'

Our hands-on Heritage Workshops teach transferable skills and the histories behind them in a full day (6 hrs) programme.

Topics range from Viking motif appliqué to '70s macramé, with Arts & Crafts tapestry, Regency embroidery, Liberty Florals, Durham quilting and more in-between.

The histories have a uniquely British flavour, with many rooted in Yorkshire and the North East. The skills are timeless: knitting, tapestry-work, quilting, cross stitch, appliqué, macramé, embroidery and beading.

We also have shorter Saturday Skills Classes to learn new skills or develop existing ones.
