The Craft Room Tarporley was set-up in summer 2014, as somewhere for the local community to learn new creative skills and develop exisiting ones. At the same time you'll get to meet new people with similar interests. Classes are run as short courses, one-off workshops or as private tuition.
The Craft Room is in a lovely studio just off Tarporley high street. The classes are taught by Rachael, a qualified and experienced teacher. She also hosts children's birthday parties, prosecco and painting classes for adults, one to one tuition for GCSE and A Level students, and runs holiday workshops. Guest teachers are also welcome to come and teach craft workshops at The Craft Room. Click here to find out more about the classes or go to the calendar for a quick overview.
