Visit Cowslip Workshops

Cowslip Workshops is a unique place! Sitting on a hill just outside Launceston in Cornwall we are delighted to welcome visitors from all over the world to our little piece of "paradise".

We were awarded a grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development in 2019, which helped me to build accessible toilets and a new workshop.  Since I built my lovely new workshop, who would have thought this has been the second year that it’s been so impossible to carry on regular classes let alone overseas tutors who we have missed seeing so much. But we have carried on in a small way I love the classes and seeing everyone, thank you all so much for your tremendous support keep safe and let’s all look forward to a much improved 2022, we have some fabulous plans let’s hope they can happen. Love Jo and everyone at Cowslip xxxxx
