We are pleased to announce the launch of our self-directed ceramics residency programme at our beautiful new site in the picturesque ville d’Art et Histoire of Montmorillon. We welcome individual practitioners or collaborators for stays of four weeks, during Spring and Autumn. 

Our residencies are suitable for artists and ceramicists looking for the time and space to work independently on their own clay-based projects, sheltered from the distractions and demands of contemporary society. 

Residents will stay in one of the self-catered apartments in our seventeenth century townhouse and work in the adjoining atelier - a former forge steeped in history.  This is an opportunity for those with experience working in a ceramics studio and do not need technician support. For more information on the facilities in our studio, see here.
