Appleby Training & Heritage Centre Leisure Courses

Community Learning :

Appleby Training and Heritage Centre offers a wide range of community learning courses.  Some of our most popular include : Introduction to Upholstery, Welding for Beginners, An introduction to Plastering and Rendering, Rag Rug making, Sewing and Art classes.

The Centre aims to respond to the needs of our local community; therefore, if there is a course you are interested in please do let us know and we will endeavor to source a tutor who has the skills and experience to deliver the learning.

As a small, independent training provider, we need minimum numbers of learners on our courses to cover our costs.  Generally, we need a minimum of 10 learners.

Most of our classes are run in either one of our training classrooms (converted railway carriages) or one of our purpose equipped workshops.  Occasionally we run classes away from our main site, you will obviously be advised of the class location.
