Well what an amazing week! Thank you to Sylph for your care and attention, thank you for the delicious home-grown food, and mostly thank you for the teaching and the inspiration that allowed me to make beautiful pots!
The week was packed full of pottery – every stage was taught and explained in a patient and passionate way. My skills and confidence have grown hugely and I am so pleased with the mugs, tea bowls and lampshade I am taking home and know I will treasure them. Sylph’s attention to detail means that the things you make are beautiful (or at least I think so!).
However the week is about more than pots. I stayed in a beautiful French old Mill. Sylph and the people who stay and help her (thank you Lana!), grow and cook delicious food – amazing three course lunch often straight from the garden, all the French cheese you can eat, organic wines, home made pizza, brioche… It was fab to be part of this world for a week.
I want to encourage anyone reading this to go for it and book! I was unsure before booking but am so glad I did. I had an inspirational week that has left me rejuvenated, full of delicious food and excited to continue with my making in the UK.
