Watch this space for a programme of forthcoming creative workshops to be run at Fenham Farm by Gill Curry and other artists and craftspeople.

A major part of the new Granary building at Fenham is workshop space for Gill (owner and host at Fenham Farm) with additional facilities for running creative residential courses. Gill writes:

I’ve had an interest in textiles all my life influenced by my mother and grandmother who were always creating. I studied at the Scottish College of Textiles before settling on the farm. In between farming activities and raising 2 daughters, I studied City & Guilds Creative Embroidery, then gained an Adult Teaching Certificate and taught Creative Textiles for a number of years at the local Community Centre.

As well as enjoying my own workshop space in The Granary, I will be drawing on the network of very talented speakers and tutors that I have built up as Programme Secretary for the Border Textile Group to arrange a series of open workshops and short courses at Fenham.

Details will be made available here once finalised. In the meantime, we also welcome others who wish to host their own creative courses or workshops here. The Granary and B&B accommodation alongside make Fenham an ideal venue.

In February 2017, we welcomed textile artist Lizzie Wall who designed a bespoke workshop inspired by Fenham Farm and local landscapes.
