Anna, Journal Making

It was a lovely and relaxing day. Helen is a great teacher - encouraging and full of tips and ideas, but ultimately letting you create your own pieces in your own style.

Sue, Fused Glass

In a beautiful location

The Butterfly Studio is situated in the beautiful village of Halford. This village is on the Roman Fosse Way and the River Stour. The farm is approximately 3 miles outside Shipston on stour and 9 miles from Stratford upon Avon. It used to be a mixed farm with both crops and cattle but is now run as a haven for wildlife and a retreat for a variety of  creative pursuits.
