General Details

We at Orchard Barn are a social enterprise specialising in natural and traditional building skills training on live restoration projects. In true vernacular style we source trees from local woodland (some of which we hand convert using hand tools) and dig our own earth for daub, clay lump and earth mortar.

Since 2007 we have involved over 3,000 people in the restoration of our C17 timber frame Suffolk barn which is now our teaching centre/workshop.

We provide a number of courses hobby or professional with CPD accreditation also traditional carpentry skills on our current project Suffolk Long House
