Develop or improve your ceramic and sculpting skills while enjoying a comfortable, full-board holiday in beautiful surroundings on the wild and inspiring Penwith peninsula, close to St Ives and Penzance.

Nominated in The Guardian shortlist of 10 of the Best Creative Breaks in the UK, 2019.

"Cornish Pottery Holidays on the Penwith peninsula in Cornwall should get you throwing with confidence.  The course runs for five full days so there’s enough time to work at your own pace with plenty of input from the tutor, ceramic artist Caroline Winn. As the studio is available around the clock, you’d have time to practice and experiment. Expect a house-party atmosphere, comfortable rooms and good food."

Highly recommended. Am a relative beginner but I got to use and experiment with all types of clay such as porcelain, paper porcelain etc which you don't normally get access to on other pottery courses. Caroline is incredibly encouraging and an excellent teacher. It was a perfect week for me because as well as it being a fantastic course, it was set against a backdrop of beautiful Cornwall with access to fabulous walks and there was the added bonus of staying in a beautiful house where you really couldn't have felt more welcome. The meals were delicious too! Hoping to return.

A fantastic place and space. Caroline is wonderfully enthusiastic and gently draws out your creative side, even if you didn't think you had one! Beautiful surroundings, a warm comfortable home with fabulous food and excellent company. A fabulous experience.

Just returned from a fabulous pottery holiday. Beautiful location. Caroline and Martin welcome you into their lovely home and garden. Caroline is a great teacher and full of enthusiasm and ideas. And Martin's food is excellent. It's been a week of education (on many subjects over dinner!), a lot of laughter with new friends, camaraderie and creativity. Thoroughly recommended!!
