Craft month is approaching! To celebrate, this March we will be teaming up with local and regional wood artisans and experts to offer a series of talks, workshops, activities, interactives and demonstrations at The Amelia Scott. Tunbridge Wells is known for its woodwork, specifically Tunbridge ware, which inspired the production of similar wood wares all over the globe. Even though the manufacturing of Tunbridge ware has taken a back seat, Tunbridge Wells is full of talented artisans, who produce wonderful pieces of woodwork that we will be celebrating!

Join us on the 23rd and 24th of March for a weekend packed with activities for all ages.
