• About The Makers' Cabin

    The Makers’ Cabin in Letchworth was born from a complete love of craft and making anything from scratch. I love anything craft based, and noticed that my children were also getting the ‘makers’ bug and we wanted to share it with other people too!

    Here you can learn new skills, like Crochet, Macrame or just come and make something crafty with friends. Each visit to the The Makers’ Cabin (based on Highfield in Letchworth, Herts) is unique!
