Why Choose Blended Monkey?
Updated: Aug 26
Here at Blended Monkey you can choose to learn woodturning, pottery or even both in one day! Our "2 Crafts in 1 Day" workshop is a really unique way to have a go at these two wonderful crafts, and makes for a varied and fun experience. This workshop can be enjoyed by 1 or 2 people at the same time, and includes refreshments throughout the day and a lovely lunch to boot! It's a very popular gift for birthdays, anniversaries, Father's Day and Mother's Day - it's proven particularly popular for mums & daughters or dads & sons. It's great to bond while learning a new craft.
One of the other reasons to come and enjoy these crafts here at Blended Monkey is the setting. Our studios are located in the grounds of our home, and in the summer students can have their lunch outside in the quiet, pretty Blended Monkey gardens. Our 1-acre garden boasts three ponds, a wealth of beautiful, established trees, a small wooded area and lots of colour throughout the established beds.
Unlike a lot of other courses or workshops, learning woodturning or pottery with us here is a very personal affair. You have the studio to yourself and the undivided attention of Simon (if you're woodturning) or Louise (if you're having a go at pottery). This means that although the day is immersive, it's also relaxing and chilled. You don't have to wait for other students to finish taking the tutor's attention; we're at your disposal throughout the whole day.
