Where you'll be

Our workshop is located in a historic textiles mill in England's Peak District. While textiles are no longer being produced at the mill, you can see the remains of the mill pond which fed the water wheel that powered the mill. Most of the buildings have been preserved and remain much the same as they were from its inception at the end of the 18th century. The surrounding ruins and fields are our playground. Free parking is available onsite
