Welcome to my Ceramic Courses page. Here you can find the latest news about my ceramic courses. If you would like to be kept up to date about upcoming courses in Portugal or France, why not join my mailing list.

Courses will be run from both my farm, Barregao in Portugal, and at the home of Dennis Gliddon at Lot et Garonne region in Aquitaine, South West France. Dennis is a very old friend of mine from back in the early years at Dartington Pottery.

Dennis and I welcome you to join us at his magnificent gite in South West France where I will run my pottery courses suitable for all levels. The course specialises in hand throwing and glazing and decorating techniques designed for the spectacular Raku firing process.

For more information please check the website:, and or contact Dennis direct on +33 643 30 84 91.

Courses are fully catered with continental breakfasts, light lunches and a more substantial dinner. In the afternoons you are free to continue working, relax by the pool or visit some of the many local potters or Bastide towns. Non-potting partners are welcome to come at a reduced rate.
