Learning teaching

Join Gourmet Farmer Matthew Evans for a cookery class in a school like no other

All the bounty of Fat Pig Farm is destined for our oversize farmhouse kitchen. You can be a part of this, by joining us for one-off, hands-on workshops that celebrate the harvests, the seasons, and to finish, the lavish country hospitality Tasmania is renowned for at our long table feast. Every week, every month, every crop is different from the last and you get to be an integral part of the harvesting, and the cooking. Come and rejoice in the art of the handmade.

Playing with Fire - Raku workshop with Nanna Bayer and Zsolt Faludi - September 2017

You don't need to be an expert to play with fire. In fact you don't need to know anything about ceramics at all! We are very excited that Zsolt Faludi and Nanna Bayer have agreed to host a raku firing workshop on Fat Pig Farm. We'll spend the day glazing, firing and smoking pots made by Zsolt and Nanna that we can take home with us at the end of the day. Plus of course there will be plenty of Fat Pig Farm fare for morning tea and lunch at the long farmhouse table.
PRICE: $350
