Rural craft short courses

Our regular programme of one-day short courses is designed to provide the perfect introduction to a wide variety of countryside crafts and skills.


Led by experts and enthusiasts from both Capel Manor and outside of the college, the courses cover everything from rural crafts like hedge-laying, to useful skills like mushroom hunting and foraging.

Our courses usually begin in the spring and run throughout the year. We are still finalising our course programme for 2017 but below are this year’s remaining courses:


All the courses will be held at Forty Hall Farm and most run from 10am – 4pm and cost £55 per person. This includes a delicious lunch, refreshments and all course materials. Tools will also be provided. Just bring yourself and your enthusiasm! Shorter half-day courses, like our mushroom walks, cost £40 per person and run from 10am – 1pm.


Tickets can be bought online via eventbrite. Click on the courses to find out more about each one.
