Welcome to FERN Crafts

FERN Crafts is a community group whose main purpose is to conserve the environment and pass on traditional countryside craft skills. FERN stands for Factual, Environmental, Respectful and Natural. We have a volunteer day every other week and are based in Church Fenton, North Yorkshire.

What we do:


We carry out many tasks from coppicing to gardening and have a fantastic 22ft Yurt as our meeting place set in a fruit orchard. FERN bought it’s Yurt from the Really Interesting Yurt Company (www.thereallyinterestingtentcompany.co.uk/index.php/yurts)in September 2012. It has meant we have a warm and dry place we can carry out activities no matter what the weather. It was purchased using a grant from Awards For All (who we would greatly like to thank).
