Ardington School of Crafts has a reputation for excellent tuition and a welcoming atmosphere. It is housed in a lovely Victorian school building in the beautiful village of Ardington, Oxfordshire. The tranquil surroundings and the high quality of tuition provide a creative and relaxed environment. Students often say they feel at home here.
Our workshops are spacious, flooded with natural light and are a pleasure to work in. We have views over grazed farmland and an attractive garden for sunny days.
The dining room is a great place to mix with students from other courses and discover shared interests over a sandwich lunch, provided by the school. Whenever you need a break, you can help yourself to freshly brewed tea or coffee and take a few minutes to browse craft magazines and books by our tutors.
In the entrance hall we have an exhibit of work by our tutors. This changes regularly and shows what you can make on the courses in our packed programme.
Lunchtime is a good time for a stroll round the village or along the river – the church, shop, café, pub, manor house and millennium sundial are all worth a visit.
Why not take some time out of your busy schedule and immerse yourself in a craft for a day or two? Discover a satisfying pastime and also a place to relax and recharge.
