If you’ve got time on your hands over summer and feel like trying something creative why not sign up and learn a new craft.
Hope and Elvis, run by artist Louise Presley, has a number of creative classes running through the summer at her studios based in the beautiful grounds for Welbeck Abbey, Nottinghamshire. Try your hand at bag, book, cushion or mosaic making, to name but a few. Living by the sea as I do, I particularly like the sound of her Coast course on the 23rd/24th July in which you can learn how to make beach inspired textiles. Course and ticket information is available from Five Go MadTweet
