Short courses at Assington Mill
We run an eclectic mix of over 70 different short rural skills and crafts courses throughout the year. The fantastic courses, which offer beekeeping for beginners, storytelling, upholstery, hen keeping, 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 homemade 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!
