A conversion has happened at The Potter's Yard - studio workshop and home to Patricia and Ultan (Men Who Built Britain and McAlpine's Men) It is not exactly a road to Damascus moment, but a very physical conversion of two of our stables into a lovely spacious residential space. Currently we are advertising on airbnb and have had many visitors from all over the world this summer to stay with us.
In the autumn we are offering residential pottery courses for a weekend and for a week. We can accomodate 4 friends, colleagues or a family group of 4. Self catering, the apartment is ideal with kitchen, double bedroom with ensuite and a main sitting room with a sofa bed which converts into a cosy double by night. We plan to run the pottery courses for beginners and for those with some working knowledge of the craft who would like to improvetheir skills. Working in a concentrated way for a sustained period is the best approach to improving technique and working out ideas for ceramic pieces. We have a huge wood fired kiln at the Yard and firing this would make an unforgettable finale to an ideal week's work. Enquiries for cost and more details of the courses please give Patricia a call on m. 086 1914648
