Pottery Courses in the French Pyrenees
Pottery Courses in the French Pyrenees

Kim Grayson, Your tutor.

I love sharing my studio with other potters, be they beginners or experienced, imparting and exchanging knowledge and skills. 

 

The studio is equipped with two electric and one kick wheel, a pug mill, a slab roller, workbenches, running water and drying shelves.  The kiln is housed in a separate room behind a fire door.  Clays and glazes are included in the price and there is no need to bring your own apron.  Unlike some tutors, I do not make students clean the floor!  There is even a 'potter's powder room' (toilet). We take a tea break midway through each session to discuss pots and potters.  On warm days we work on the sun terrace, with a view of the fields across the river and the mountains in the distance.

 

It is true that potting couples are rare, so many of my students combine the course with a holiday, staying in local accommodation, of which there is a plentiful choice and exploring the beautiful Ariege Pyrenees with their hire cars, picked up from Carcassonne or Toulouse Airports, both just an hour away.  B&B and Gite accommodation is plentiful and I can help you in your search.

Welcome to my website!  Please visit again for more images of happy students, lovely pots and beautiful landscapes.  Hoping to see you soon!  Kim.
