If you were inspired by the Great Pottery Throw Down or just want to learn a new craft, Cornish Pottery Holidays (www.CornishPotteryHolidays.co.uk) are now running luxury residential pottery holidays at the beautiful and secluded Primrose Cottage on the rugged Penwith peninsula in the far west of Cornwall.
Courses run for five full days and six nights and are designed for all levels of ability, from the experienced potter to the complete beginner. Sessions are for a maximum of 5 people and are taught by ceramics sculptor Caroline Winn, who used to work at the Tate and has run pottery courses for the National Trust, schools and galleries. Meals are freshly prepared and use the best ingredients from local suppliers, including the famous fish market in nearby Newlyn and the traditional butcher in Penzance.
Primrose Cottage is a 200-year-old traditional Cornish house with all home comforts, set in a secluded 3-acre garden and lying in a moorland valley within walking distance of the famous cliffs and coves of the Penwith Peninsula. As well as creative inspiration, it offers peace and relaxation in exceptional surroundings.
