"Beautiful location. Excellent instructors" - Alan (Burford, Oxfordshire)
Welcome to Cotswolds Rural Skills
The Cotswolds Rural Skills website is a one stop shop for training courses and competitions in a wide range of rural skills and crafts throughout the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. By working with local instructors, organisations, community groups and landowners we ensure that these courses are not only informative and practical but also make a noticeable and lasting contribution to the Cotswold landscape. So whether you want to try your hand at blacksmithing, stone carving, rebuild a 200 year old dry stone wall, or have a go at the ancient art of thatching, then one of these courses could be for you! Booking online is easy just click on the course you're interested in, register and pay.
