The Abbot House SCIO has an overriding objective to support local arts, crafts and heritage skills. We have therefore created a beautiful Workshop within our outbuilding, situated in the garden.

Our Workshop is a creative space that will be available to rent on an hourly basis for classroom-based learning. Space can be hired to offer a wide choice of both heritage and contemporary classes, the perfect place to learn new skills, meet people and have fun. We aim to offer classes including jewellery making, chocolate making demonstrations, paper cut fact, the possibilities are endless.

We are also very open to listening to your ideas on what you’d like to teach, learn, see or hear within our Workshop.

The room has a seating capacity of 16 at 4 learning tables. Each table has 4 power points and there is a small sink with a water supply. The room and restroom are accessible to wheelchair users.

If you are interested in hiring this creative space please contact us at for classes starting from October 2021.

All updates will be posted through out Facebook and Instagram pages so keep an eye on them!
