The Pottery is in a small hamlet in the stunning Lot region of South West France. We have a lovely and light, fully equipped Pottery with 3 electric wheels, an electric kiln and a gas one on the way!
We offer 2 day and 4 day courses, the 2 day courses are Mon – Tues or Thurs – Friday. The 4 day courses run from Mon – Friday with the Wednesday off to give you the opportunity to explore the local markets or vineyards, or spend time in the workshop honing your skills!
