Craft Pack

Pumpkin Pouch craft packs are available to pick up from the Mrs Smith's Cottage shop. A perfect Halloween craft for all ages.

Join the Navenby Plough Jags as they tour Navenby to celebrate Plough Sunday. With performances by local young people in the afternoon and a tour of pubs from the adult team in the evening. More details coming soon.


We are excited to present a series of summer workshops at Mrs Smith’s Cottage. These workshops are a chance for local artists, creatives and makers to share their skills, and an opportunity to spend time with friends or family while sparking your creative side.

Activities are accessible for all, however support will be needed for young children or those with mobility issues.

These workshops have been in part funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of our restoration and reinterpretation project. Allowing us to offer them to you at a subsidised ticket cost!

Ceramic Tile Workshop

17 August @ 10:00 am 6:00 pm

Free please book your place on one of the sessions as we have limited capacity

Our artist-in-residence Nicki Jarvis has been inspired by the lovely ‘datestones’ all around Navenby to make some versions in clay. This workshop has been funded as part of her Arts Council England project ‘Take Part and Make Art TOGETHER.’ with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Join us to create a decorative clay tile to capture YOUR favourite aspects of the village, which will then be added to a public artwork for Navenby. You are also welcome to make one to keep if you wish.

Session 1 – 10:00 to 11:00

Session 2 – 11:30 to 12:30

Session 3 – 13:30 to 14:30

Session 4 – 15:00 to 16:00

All materials and tools will be supplied. You may want to bring an apron or wear old clothing.

Please note: the finished work will be taken away by Nicki for firing but personal artworks can then be collected at a later date.
