We have set up a centre for art, design & nature, a place to stimulate your senses, to make people aware of all the artistic beauty nature has to offer and of the influence nature has on art. Just outside Crayke we spotted an ideal location for our idea.

So what is going on at Dutch house?
A café with an arts & crafts shop. A diverse mix of art from local artists is for sale or just there for you to enjoy whilst having a cup of tea. In the café you can enjoy real Dutch specialities (pancakes, stroopwafels, etc) The courtyard offers comfortable seating and displays sculptures and plants. The whole setting is surrounded by an ecological sculpture garden, a perfect place to unwind, learn about ecological gardening and admire the cohesion between art and nature. There will be a kids nature zone in the garden. In the large art studio we offer a variety of courses/workshops involving art & nature, give lectures on specific topics, organise exhibitions and ‘after school’ projects / kids' clubs / children's parties! We will also offer Holiday experiences, involving art or nature. For example: wildlife sketching, field painting trip on the moors, garden tours, etc.

Thank you for giving us feedback

The last few weeks we did a lot of market research with questionnaires. We handed out 286 questionnaires in Crayke, Wath court nursery, Hovingham, Museum gardens York, Galtres festival, etc. 30% Was filled in, and we think that is a very good score. We are still handing them out or sending them digitally by email, so the market research doesn't stop. With all the feedback we had, we are able to refine our business plan. We want to thank everybody who filled one in and provided us with their personal information and suggestions. If you didn't receive a questionnaire and you want to fill one in, please send us an email at info@dutchhouseyorkshire.com and we will send you a digital questionnaire.
