textile art from a creative workshop in Whitby

Creative workshops in Whitby

2020 holds lots of exciting events in Whitby, especially if you’re interested in learning a new skill or developing a creative interest. The Raithwaite Estate have teamed up with some fantastic artists, photographers and jewellery makers to bring you some very special creative workshops.

These workshops bring some of the best local talent to you. You’ll spend your time working with the artist, photographer and jeweller to create pieces of your very own, informed by their expertise and inspired by our beautiful local area.

The workshops run throughout the year. You can book on to:

Work alongside Patrick Smith as you develop your skills in painting and give monoprinting a try.

Patrick’s workshop run: 2nd – 4th March and 14th – 16th September 2020.

Justine’s workshops run: 6th – 8th April and 26th – 28th October 2020.
