ABOUT the Wandering Workshop

We are a small and friendly company that loves to wander about on make, create and design adventures around Derbyshire. Our aim is for everyone to have fun in a relaxed atmosphere, making something to take home and feel proud of.

With 12 years teaching experience in all types of materials and media, our DBS checked friendly staff can organise and run exciting activities to suit your needs and budget.

We currently offer the following:

Birthday, parties

Hen Parties and 'Ladies Nights'

STEM Workshops for schools and home educators. Fully curriculum linked to your learners requirements. We love to use our maths and engineering skills to make lights sparkle and motors turn. Get closer to nature with bug habitats and outdoors workshops. Contact us and we can help widen your Science and Technology teaching.

Craft in the Café: An evening (2-3 hour workshop) with friends and something to take home that you've made while enjoying tea, coffee and cake. Sometimes a cheeky cocktail too... See what's coming up.

A peaceful day in the Village: indulge your creativity for a day (6 hours) workshop in a peaceful surrounding

We can wander to you, great for birthday parties and get togethers. We can travel to homes and businesses or suggest venues for your party. Just say hi and let us know what sort of activities or skills you are interested in learning.

Our workshops are all about having fun and enjoying new things. We can bring dairy free cakes and catering (yum) as well as personalised mugs for your group to mark a special occasion.

Contact us if you'd like to order.

There's more information on our services page, or feel free to email, message or call. We would love to help you have a great creative experience, indoor or out!
