About the Event

Our weekend residential courses run for 3 days and 2 nights. They are designed for all levels and ability, from the experienced potter to the complete beginner, our aim is to inspire your inner artist with the fantastic medium of clay.

All the food is cooked on the premises and we aim to use as much as we can of our own home grown vegetables, and duck and chickens eggs.

The garden is a wonderful place to relax and is open for you during your stay.

Dinner on arrival and all breakfasts and lunches are included, but we do not provide a daily evening meal. There are several local pubs and restaurants to explore.

Non potting companions, who would like to take advantage of the beautiful surrounding nature, are welcome to stay on a bed and breakfast basis as long as they are sharing a room with a potter.

Courses will only go ahead if there are 4 people booked.
