Yorkshire Dales Workshops has been wound up as a limited company but this web site - www.ydw.org.uk continues to provide:

free on-line resources (see navigation sidebar) as well as
Publications for sale on line (books, CDs, videos, multimedia learning resources).

YDW was set up as a small not-for-profit organisation working to promote awareness, appreciation and participation in Folk Arts in the community. YDW organised residential folk arts workshops and helped to establish and develop community choirs, ceilidh bands and dance clubs, as well as encouraging young performers, players, singers and dancers at all levels. This was achieved not only with the help of grants, but also with a tremendous amount of help from volunteers who gave many hours of free labour to help make things happen. We are profoundly grateful to all of you who gave your help.

NEW & REVISED PUBLICATIONS include the entire Jackson Manuscript now available in Two Volumes
