Pottery Courses – Wiltshire & France

Pottery Courses – Wiltshire & France


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 and an electric kiln.

We set up our workshop in France several years ago now. I’m delighted that Emily Myers , Jennifer Hall , Nicola Gladwin and Katherine Winfrey join me in France as guest tutors.

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!

We can also offer accommodation on site, Fiona, my sister, has 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!! https://www.lemassarrat.com/
