Welcome to Trading Places – if you’re interested in Traditional Crafts, and would like to learn some of the skills involved, then we probably have a course for you! We are located in the beautiful Nene Valley in Northamptonshire at the Stanwick Lakes nature reserve. In our green oak craft barn we offer a range of craft courses once practised in the area.
Almost all of our Craft courses are limited to between 4 and 6 people, ensuring that everyone is given plenty of individual support, enjoys their day and leaves with a sense of achievement. We believe that if you’ve had a great experience with high quality training then you might want to come back again!
“A very good day, might try another course too. A lovely venue and so many skills to learn!” Trish C
“Very enjoyable and exceeded expectations” Gary M
Due to COVID-19 we are currently unable to offer any courses. We will update this website when the situation changes.
Please have a look through our website for details about the traditional craft courses we’re offering. Some are introductory and others provide a chance to develop your skills further. You can book your place online – or maybe buy a course as a unique gift for friends or family. We can also take group bookings for up to 6 people per course so please get in touch to discuss the details.
If your chosen craft course is already fully booked please do contact us as we sometimes organise additional courses during the year to meet demand.
“A great day – interesting, fun and informative.” Mike M
