Browse and buy from the Ferrers Centre Courtyard Workshops

Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire

You’ll find the Ferrers Centre Courtyard in the beautiful Staunton Harold Estate, a traditional country estate with a great Georgian mansion.

Built for the fifth Earl Ferrers between 1760 and 1780, the stabling, granaries, dovecote, living quarters, blacksmith’s shop and carriage houses have been slowly converted since 1955 into a splendid courtyard building of brick and slate. These are the homes to the Ferrers Centre Courtyard Workshops & Artists.

You’ll find a genuine love of arts and crafts from the makers here, in what might be the largest concentration of craftspeople in Britain. Visit the Ferrers Gallery and take the weight off your feet at the Staunton Stables Tearoom.

You could browse for hours and enjoy talking to the makers themselves. There are artists, frame makers, fabric specialists, bridal gowns and corsetry and upholstery, garden ornaments and ceramics, music studios, and a blacksmith still in residence.

If you’d like to ‘learn to make’, you could check the Ferrers Centre website for its variety of workshop experiences and courses.
