Swallows & Artisans is an inspiring, purpose-built creative workshop located in a spectacular setting overlooking beautiful Coniston Water in the Lake District.


Celebrating the heritage of the Lake District, we work closely with skilled creatives who join us to teach a variety of craft skills from floristry to papercutting. Learn new skills, discover your passion and enjoy some you-time at Swallows & Artisans.


For the full retreat experience, combine your creative workshop with a relaxing, rejuvenating stay at Lanehead. Situated adjacent to the workshop, Lanehead is the historic home of artist William G Collingwood and provides accommodation exclusively for Swallows & Artisans guests.


The Swallows & Artisans name draws on Lanehead's connections to Arthur Ransome, the author of the world famous Swallows & Amazons novel which is based on his experiences teaching the children of the Collingwood Family to sail at Lanehead's boathouse.  


We hope this beautiful and historical setting will allow your creative aspirations to flourish in the relaxed company of like-minded people.
