Set in the most stunning scenery of the Surrey hills, the Old Barn workshop backs the beautiful Frensham Ponds and is part of a new artisan destination in Frensham, near Farnham, made up of small creative businesses and local producers, all set within a working Dairy Farm. Our gorgeous little grade two listed, 18th century old dairy barn has been recently restored and offers a wellequipped and cosy studio that is the perfect creative space for immersing yourself in the artisan craft of jewellery and silversmithing.
Set up by Fenella Watson and Jessica Noble who are two established jewellery and silversmithing designers, the barn is also home to their creative practices so classes offer a fully professional creative environment complimented by a wealth of knowledge and passion for designing and making jewellery.
Jessica and Fenella have been the regular jewellery tutors at South Hill Park Arts Centre together for the last three years and have built a great working relationship together as well as experience in teaching regular classes and developing peoples creative skills. Their creative space is friendly, welcoming, and most importantly good fun.
“It has been huge fun getting the new workshop up and running over the summer months and finally our workbenches are in and ready to be used. Oxo, the Norfolk terrier, has already found a corner of the workshop to call his own! We feel so lucky to be in such a fantastic location. Spaces like this are so hard to come by and it is just the perfect setting for what we do. The surrounding countryside and walks down to Frensham Ponds are stunning and cannot fail to inspire, even on a rainy day!"
