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.

First course has been a blast!

We would like to thank all participants of our first art course ever at Dutch house. Stuart and Anna have done a fantastic job in tutoring an enthusiastic group. Their course in Raku proved to be a winner with a lot of smiling faces and some great results to take home.
The Raku course ran over two half days and combines 3 elements together; earth, fire, and water. The group really got into it, and some had a go at getting involved in the firing process others enjoyed making medallions, bowls, and jewellery.
