STUDY WITH THE BEST - Stay with us while you study

All of our courses are residential and this has been a pet-free home for 16 months.

Classes now take place with an intimate class size of just 3 students.

We prefer the quality of encounter and the learning enjoyment which comes from a smaller group.

Our studio is in a fab location on the outskirts of St Austell in Cornwall, and consists of two fully-equipped, dedicated metal-work rooms within a large house set in over an acre of grounds. 

We have wonderful accommodation on site, so you can combine your class with a mini-break and totally immerse yourself in the creative experience.  Staying here also removes the stress of having to arrange accommodation and getting to class on time each day.  We recommend you arrive the night before your class starts so you are already onsite. That way you'll be ready to start your class, well-rested the following morning.  Good quality linens and towels are provided and we prefer a 2 night minimum stay.  We're happy to discuss your requirements on the phone if you want more details.

We have a library of jewellery making books and magazines for you to peruse in the evening and there are some excellent places to go for a meal (a short drive away) if you don't fancy cooking after class.

Here's the link to our Airbnb self-contained annexe listing.  Suitable for a couple, or a solo traveller, this spacious annexe has a it's own separate entrance, a kitchenette with private garden and spectacular views.

Your spacious room with comfy bed, double sofa, 2 wardrobes, DVD library & player, and the en suite bathroom with the most powerful shower in Cornwall (we think).  Along with kitchenette including breakfast (cereals, milk, bread, butter, jam, tea, coffee), and finally, your private patio and garden with spectacular views and ever-changing skies.  We have no nearby street lights so the star gazing on a clear night is fantastic.

Or there is the option of a private upstairs bedroom in the main house with a locking door.   You'll have shared use of the bathroom (only one other person sharing) plus shared use of the kitchen, living room, TV, and wi-fi)  The upstairs room is only suitable for one person.  It has a comfortable sofa bed, is peaceful and sunny with fantastic views across mid Cornwall  - Email us for more information or to book direct

Sunny in the daytime & Cosy in the evening.  The bathroom is just next door with a shower, loo and corner bath.  Note: we're on a septic tank system and have a saying here - "Paper, pee and poo. Nothing else in the loo."
