Courses & Lectures

‘The Bothies’ work closely with a number of very talented people, many of them local, who deliver on a wide range of topics allowing you to extend your knowledge or learn a completely new skill.


The Conservatory has played host to a wide ranging number of courses and workshops over the past few years. Previous ones have included felt making, willow weaving, painting, photography and several different aspects of horticulture. Courses vary from half a day to two days in length.
