Cabin Workshops FAQ


Where are the workshops held?

Workshops are held in my cabin at:

View Garden Centre,
Chelmsford Rd, 
Wickford SS11 8SJ


How do I find your cabin?

The cabin is situated towards the back of the garden centre as shown here:

Come in through the main doors and walk round to the doors that lead to the outside plant area. Follow the rather winding path round to the back of the garden centre where all the cabins are situated.


Is there free parking?

Yes there is a free car park at the front of the garden centre.


What facilities are at the venue?

There are toilets within a few yards of the cabin.
The garden centre has a cafe where you can buy drinks, snacks and meals to eat in or take away.


How accessible is the cabin?

Access to the cabin is level from the car park with a couple of gentle ramps in places. There is one small step as you approach the cabin, please get in touch if you have any access concerns.

What do I need to bring?

You don't need to bring anything with you, all materials and tools are supplied. I have tea, coffee or hot chocolate here for you but you are welcome to bring your own drinks or snacks!

I'm a complete beginner so a bit nervous...

Please don't worry - I love complete beginners and will really look after you!

I break down all the workshops into stages and as we only ever have groups of 4 to 6 in the cabin so I can give you lots of help and assistance.

Almost all the workshops are really beginner friendly (I'll state if they are a little trickier) and you'll be delighted with what you can make on your very first go :)

What age are the workshops for?

Most of the workshops I run are intended for adults and suitable for ages 16 plus but if you have a younger child who wants to come along please just get in touch and I'll let you know if it is suitable or if we can adapt the workshop a little for them!

I do run junior and family workshops for ages 10+ in the school holidays so keep an eye out for those :)

Do you run private workshops?

I do offer private workshops for special occasions or just for friend get togethers, click here for more information.

    • If I can resell your place I can give you a full refund :)
    • If I am unable to resell your place on a fully booked workshop unfortunately I am unable to refund the workshop (however we are often able to arrange you taking a place on an alternative workshop when there are any spare places!)
