Gresham House is a former Mine Captain’s house near Calstock in the beautiful Tamar Valley in East Cornwall.
When we arrived here in the spring of 2011 we felt we had discovered a little paradise, a perfect place for making music and art in a most inspiring landscape. We started Gresham House Studios for running summer workshops in singing and art.
The music studio is well suited for working with singing groups of up to 10 participants. The art studio has been gradually adapted to a perfect workspace for printmakers and painters, and now also incorporates a permanent gallery and our studio apartment for creative retreats. Outside we have established a productive vegetable plot to be able to treat our course participants to fresh, homegrown lunches and suppers, and on the other side of the house the gardens have a wonderful view towards Morwelham and distant Dartmoor.
Due to the pandemic we were unable to run our workshops programme during 2020 and 2021, but — all being well — we hope to run a full programme of courses again in 2022. Details will be published on this website from mid January.
The workshop pages on this website therefore still look rather bare, but we will announce new plans as soon as they seem possible and we look forward to welcoming singers, artists and writers back to Gresham House Studios soon.
