Short courses at Assington Mill
We run an eclectic mix of over 70 different short rural skills and crafts courses throughout the year. The courses, which include beekeeping for beginners, hen keeping, story telling, upholstery and a wealth of others (see below) - are held in East Anglia's first straw bale building, on a small 70-acre farm in one of Suffolk's beautiful secret valleys, which is managed as a private nature reserve. Included in the programme are home-made lunches, biscuits and cakes, with food either grown on our own allotment, or sourced locally, and organic where possible. We specialise in gluten-free food.

So whatever you're looking for you are bound to find something new of interest at Assington Mill. Book a course with us soon!
