Online Classes And Workshops


Welcome to Norden Farm's online programme of classes and workshops!

Our health and wellbeing seem more important than ever in these uncertain times. We've been working with our tutors to bring you a fabulous line up of creative and fitness classes digitally via Zoom - so you can still enjoy being part of the Norden Farm community from the comfort of your home!


How does it work?

The classes will take place via a video stream where you will be able to use the camera and audio on your tablet, laptop or other device to see and hear the tutor and other participants.

You simply need to book on to your class or workshop of choice as normal by the cut off time (see event page). We'll then send you an email with a link to your session, a meeting ID and password. These will be emailed to you after the booking cut off time, shortly before the class begins.
