Pottery courses in France

Mas Sarrat Pottery Course Booking Form

My sister Fiona, lives in a small hamlet in the stunning Lot region of South West France, she has very kindly let me set up a Pottery Workshop in one of her barns. So, with a lot of help from friends, we now have a lovely and light, fully equipped Pottery with 3 electric wheels, an electric kiln and a gas one on the way! We can also offer accommodation on site, Fiona has converted an old tobacco drying barn into 2 holiday cottages, please have a look at her site, she generally caters for young families but these beautiful cottages are equally suitable for Potters!! www.childfriendlycottage.com

For the Chalke Valley courses, Emily Myers and I have been the tutors. Emily can’t be here for all of the French courses, which gives me the opportunity to invite other potting friends to join me. Jennifer Hall and Katherine Winfrey are both great potters who will be coming out to help tutor.
The courses will either run for 2 days (Monday & Tuesday or Thursday & Friday) or 5 days Monday-Friday. For the 5 day course you are very welcome to arrive on the Saturday prior to the course and leave on the Saturday afterwards. The closest airports are Bergerac and Toulouse, we strongly recommend that you hire a car or drive here, as we are quite a long way from local amenities!!
If you would like to bring a non-potting partner, they would be very welcome. They are also welcome to join us for any of the meals at a cost of €20/person/meal.

22nd – 23rd October 2018 (2 days) and
