We call the Lock Picking a sport but really every lock is a puzzle that challenges the mind and the finger. We have an extensive collection of locks and our resident expert Tony will get you started showing you everything you need to know to start picking. All picks provided at the workshop.

Lock Picking – Tuesday 5th July 6pm or Saturday 9th July 12pm

Please register for these events here


Master mailmaker Martin Raynsford returns:  

The workshop will be £8 and provide all the rings you will need to get started. You will be shown how to make

Full Persian Chain
Byzantine Chain
Inverted Round Chain
or just how to get started in the rewarding (and rather addictive) creative pastime. Perfect to keep hands busy whilst watching television.
