A Pottery Retreat with Fogo Clay Studio

Create your own clay pieces with a Master Potter

Take a week this November to familiarize yourself with the rich tradition of making that has engrossed generations of Fogo Islanders. Fogo Island Inn has partnered with Fogo Clay Studio to offer five days of pottery sessions with experienced potter Sarah Fulford. 

Fogo Clay Studio's workshops are a unique experience, whether you are a beginner looking to discover a new world, an intermediate potter seeking a focused time to create with a built-in mentor, or a master potter who has long hoped to work on a personal project in a welcoming studio at the edge of the world.

The workshop will run Monday November 15th, to Friday November 19th. Guests will arrive at the Inn on Sunday November 14th, and leave on or after Saturday November 20th.
Participants will begin sessions at the studio at 10:00 am. If you're an early riser, we encourage you to enjoy any of Fogo Island's hiking trails beforehand.  There are four to five hours of instruction each day punctuated by a delicious lunch prepared with local ingredients.  After your class, you can choose to spend more time in the studio, curl up by one of the Inn's woodstoves with a good book and glass of wine, or go for an excursion - it's up to you. The Fogo Clay Studio will be open to you 12 hours a day during your stay at Fogo Island Inn.
The Pottery Retreat includes 6 nights at Fogo Island Inn in a Newfoundland Room, 5 days of sessions at Fogo Clay Studio, and a complete hospitality experience that includes all meals, land excursions, and full use of the Inn’s facilities, such as the rooftop hot tubs, saunas, and cinema. Fogo Island Inn is a non-tipping community, and all employees participate in an incentive-based bonus plan.
