Pottery France

Wheel throwing in a Pottery in the North of France

In our artisanal "Poterie" in the North-East of France you can be free from your daily struggles and relax for the entire week. A different lifestyle, a different pace, simplicity and serenity in a tiny village called Vannecourt, counting 80 friendly inhabitants. One peaceful week, just for you.

Creative holidays all meals included

The ceramics workshops are given in a group setting, for a maximum of 15 people. Whether you are a complete beginner or an old hand, you are more than welcome at the pottery center in Vannecourt. You can choose between different themes depending on what you want to try. See: Themes
One workshop lasts a week, during which you can expect to be spoiled with delicious homemade meals. You will be pampered and able to fully relax.

North of France

(Wheel)Throw your troubles away!

Our little world is far away from mass tourism, traffic jams, stress and performance pressure. Everything is offered to you, nothing is imposed on you! Together with like-minded people, enter this journey of discovery of an old craft. A holiday where you can create instead of consume, and enjoy the beauty of clay and fire becoming ceramics, in an old Lorraine farmhouse in a simple French village.

Accommodation included

You can have a room in the farmhouse, or choose the cheaper option to set up a tent on our terrain. See: Accommodation

Open to all levels

Whether you have always dreamt of learning how to throw, or you're looking for new techniques to improve your pottery skills, this course is for you.
Last year more than 200 people stayed for a week in our pottery, of which almost 80 had never even touched clay before!

A French vacation at your own pace

In the mornings there are courses; in the afternoons guests are free to continue working in the workshop or to have a look around the area, swim in our pool, go for a walk in the beautiful countryside or simply read a book under one of the fruit trees and enjoy the view. Might we also suggest a visit to Art-Nouveaux cities Nancy and Lunéville?

Where are we?

Vannecourt is situated in the gorgeous territory of the Saulnois.
If you come by plane and train, we can pick you up at the station of Morhange.
(Tip: take a plane to Luxembourg and then the train to Metz, then Morhange).
We can pick you up from 3:00 pm, if you are too early it's better to stay a couple of hours in Metz rather than Morhange, as the former is a much more charming city to explore.
