Programs


Whether you live on Fogo Island or are just visiting for the day we have programming for you.

We offer 6 week Discover and Creation workshops for those living on the Island or here for an extended stay seeking to take up ceramics as a hobby or a vocation.  

We offer private classes for groups from one to eight people which are perfect for visitors.  During private classes we teach you to use the wheel, you make a few pieces, and we finish them for you according to your instructions and mail them to you when they are complete if you are no longer on the Island.

Saturday nights we throw our version of a Shed Party with our Saturday Nights on the Wheel.  Bring a date, or your Nan, and make something personal for you.  We finish your pieces for you, which can be picked up or mailed to you.

We are best known for our Walbourne Workshops, named after the Walbourne premises where our Studio and House are located overlooking Fogo Harbour.  These workshops are a clay-filled five night-four day immersion experience with a Visiting Instructor.  Participants stay at Walbourne House and enjoy first-rate meals cooked by our in-house chef using ingredients from the Island.
