Hobby and Craft Courses

We offer a wide range of Hobby and Craft courses at Appleby Training and Heritage Centre.  These courses are for anyone in the community who maybe has an interest in the subject. Some of our most popular courses are: Upholstery, Cake Decorating, Welding and Wood Work!

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 per course.

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. If this does occur you will be advised of the class location.

Courses with start dates as ‘TBC’ please contact us to register your interest. It is TBC as we do not have the sufficient numbers to run the course at the minute.
