Big Cat Textiles Lunches

During every masterclass at Big Cat Textiles, we offer delicious homemade lunches, with ingredients sourced locally where possible. The lunch is a buffet and includes nutritious vegetarian soup, locally made multi-grain bread, salads, cheeses and fruit. Participants can help themselves to tea and coffee throughout the day. There is a charge of £5 per day for lunch to allow us to maintain the standards of the catering we provide. You are welcome to bring your own lunch should you prefer to opt out of this.
