There are many opportunities across England for learning the folk arts. Local folk development organisations run workshop series on a weekly, annual or occasional basis.
Here are a couple to get the section started.
R3S run a constant programme of singing, clog dance, flatfooting, and longsword classes plus occasional master classes in Ripponden, West Yorkshire
Regular workshops and master classes are organised in Lewes near Brighton, featuring visiting musicians in conjunction with their folk club gigs
