Watershed Studio 

Welcome to Watershed Studio 

Watershed Studio is a family run, rural venue situated on the edge of our family farm. In the last twenty-one years we have built up a proven reputation for excellent courses, homely hospitality, delicious farmhouse food and a warm friendly welcome! 
We are currently taking bookings for 2022 - don't leave it too late to book as many courses are already full!! We have several new tutors and courses as well as our regular favourites so please do look down the whole list. We won't be producing a brochure again this year but regular round robin emails will include the programme dates each time so if you would like to be on that mailing list please do contact us. 
Covid Information: we are still playing in safe with good practices remaining in place to ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable when you are here. 
Over the last two years we have adapted the studio and improved our outdoor facilities to make us Covid Secure during the pandemic. Although the Government has removed the restrictions we are still being cautious. We are continuing to keep class numbers lower than pre-pandemic levels to allow for greater space between tables and at the moment masks are still preferred when in close proximity to others indoors.  
We are so fortunate to be out in the countryside and the buildings are airy and well ventilated. We have also introduced other improvements and changed how we serve meals and refreshments to ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed whilst you are here. It's a little different but it's still a great experience! 
We will continue to follow the news and keep up with guidelines - please do feel free to get in touch if you would like to know what further measures we are putting in place.
