    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a working pottery and although we hardly ever need help in the studio there could be the opportunity to be in the studio in your own time and with some tuition. This is a situation that would evolve and not be promised from the outset! We also have scope for exterior art projects should you have ideas and knowledge.

  • Help


    The main help we need this year [2021] is some general help around the home mainly in the garden and general maintenance and also perhaps a little exterior painting. It would be ideal for a couple and own transport would be good though not necessary.

  • Accommodation


    We have a very well equipped caravan that sleeps two and which also has decking and outside space with a kitchen and relaxing area. We would prefer to provide an allowance for food plus produce from the garden though still sharing some meals.

    What else ...

    We live in a very beautiful part of Andalucia about one and a half hours from the coast and within easy reach of the famous Andalucian cities. There is pretty good public transport though own transport would be easier as we live more than a kilometre from the town.
