When staying in the Cotswolds naturally you’ll be inspired by the gorgeous villages and nature surrounding your holiday cottage.

At Manor Cottages, we highly recommend booking a crafting session with Larkswold. Emma and Melinda offer workshops from candle making, silversmithing, lino printing and so much more.

Read on for our guide as to why you should book a creative workshop in the Cotswolds.

About Larkswold

Based on the River Evenlode just 15 minutes from Stow-on-the-Wold, Larkswold offer a sublime retreat for crafting in the countryside.

The garden studio can easily accommodate up to 20 guests and the most delicious teas, coffees and cakes are also available.

During the summer months, the studio doors open for outdoor crafting. Activities such as wreath making and wooden spoon creating are great for this.

Crafts and activities

If you’re on holiday you might be mindful of luggage and storage of your crafts. Although Larkswold offer a whole host of activities, Melinda and Emma would recommend for visiting guests:

  • Block Printing
  • Lino Printing
  • Silversmithing
  • Glass Fusing
  • Brush Lettering
  • Mosaic
  • Macrame

These items can be easily transported for the journey home or easily posted to you.

Studio guests

One of the great things about the studio is you’ll make lots of new friends whilst you craft. If you’re looking to visit on your own, you’ll enjoy a wonderful craft experience.

Larkswold does also offer activities for a variety of groups such as hen-do’s, baby showers, birthday celebrations, anniversaries and family gatherings.

If you’re looking to mark a special occasion as a couple whilst on holiday in the Cotswolds, why not try your hand at silversmithing? Or perhaps you’re organising a family reunion – an activity such as creating a mosaic together is a wonderful keepsake.
