  • Description


    I am a ceramicist / sculptor, working with clay and mixed media - and also give classes in my home studio to local French people and expats. My work is all hand-built, it does not involve a wheel due to limitations with my hands. My dog and I live in a beautiful old stone house in a lovely hamlet in the south west of France, with views to the Pyrennees. This workaway opportunity will suit a FRENCH SPEAKER who is able to improve my French and wants to improve his/her English. It will be ideal for someone who can drive (my car is available to a responsible driver), is self-motivated and is happy with living "in the middle of nowhere". The tasks are varied - mainly help around the house (dusting/vacuuming, cleaning out fireplaces, bringing in fire wood, etc,), also taking the dog out for walks, helping with cooking, helping with loading / unloading the kiln, some DIY and general maintenance and some gardening. You can make artwork here and grow as an artist, as I have over 30 years of experience as an art teacher.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    I have a lot to offer you from an arts educator point of view. I am also familiar with and enthusiastic about this area of France, and can share that with you. Finally if you would like to improve your English I would be delighted to help you. French workaways would be especially welcome here as you can then help me improve my French.

  • Aide


    Do not worry about previous skills - all you need is willingness, a positive attitude, a desire to learn and the ability to live in a very isolated area (with trips to the nearby towns of Mirepoix, Pamiers, Castelnaudary and Toulouse as occasional treats). We have a very small, but lively community in our hamlet - with a monthly evening of food/wine/entertainment or interaction. I can introduce you also to friends who live not very far and always have workaways themselves.

    You will have your own cosy room and use of a shared bathroom. The internet is very good (most of the time). Phone signal is not wonderful.

    The wifi connection is pretty good most of the time but we are in a remote area. You are welcome to work on your own projects and the hours you work helping me are flexible (although some are morning tasks).
