Rural craft Workshops

A range of meaningful, therapeutic and stimulating activities are provided by the Camphill Devon craft workshops, land and gardens.

In the workshops, people are given the opportunity and support they need to make art and craft; gaining skills, knowledge and confidence, supported by our professional team of workshop leaders.

 

Indoor activities

Craft workshops at Hapstead include Textiles, Metalwork and Jewellery, Woodwork and Pottery, providing a unique opportunity for people to learn and develop skills.

People take pride in their art and craft work, especially when they see their work exhibited and sold through fairs, shops and galleries in Devon, alongside other art and craft professionals. We feel it is important for the people we support to develop confidence, self-esteem and be recognised as equals and valued as members of the wider community equal and valued in the wider community.
