The Craft Revolution is a vibrant craft programme based on the edge of Northwoods at Schumacher College Dartington in Devon. We also manage a thriving Makers Space on the Estate. We embody the Dartington Hall Trust’s vision of a ‘Many Sided Life’; connecting contemporary making to politics and society, from the materials and designs we use to the philosophy that underpins our work and social justice.
We collaborate with over 50 makers from across the South West and beyond, exploring traditional skills, combining expert knowledge and contemporary design to develop an exciting range of courses in carpentry, furniture, textiles, ceramics, printmaking, bookbinding and artisan cookery.

From Plymouth: Take the A38 up until the A385 (Paignton, Dartington, Totnes, Dartmouth) exit. Follow the A385 towards Dartington and Totnes. Shortly after you get into Dartington you will come to a roundabout, turn right towards the industrial estate. Then immediately take the left turning onto the industrial estate. Our building is one of the new units to your left, and we’re the fourth one along (unit A4).
The closest train station is Totnes, which is on the main Paddington – Penzance line (go to the national rail enquiries site for train times). From Totnes, Leather School is either a 35 minute walk along a lovely tree-lined path, or ten minutes in a taxi (there is a taxi rank at Totnes Station).
Bus and coach
The Stagecoach Gold from Torquay to Plymouth goes through Dartington and stops just outside our building on the Plymouth bound bus, or 100m down the road on the Torquay bound.
From farther afield: There are coaches from London (Victoria Coach Station) and other major cities that go to Newton Abbot Railway Station, a short hop to Totnes.
