About Us

The School of Artisan Food exists to teach all aspects of artisan food production. It offers a unique opportunity for people of all skill levels to expand their knowledge through a wide range of short courses, and a one-year Advanced Diploma.

Based in the heart of Sherwood Forest on the Welbeck Estate in North Nottinghamshire, the school is housed in the former fire stables, dating back to 1870. Newly refurbished training rooms are specially equipped for the teaching of breadmaking, cheesemaking, brewing, butchery, charcuterie and preserving. The environment is serene and inspiring, but very accessible.

The School of Artisan Food is especially keen to provide opportunities for the local community as well as to teach enthusiasts, existing and aspiring producers and complete newcomers. The School of Artisan Food is a registered charity and as a not-for-profit institution is committed to providing the widest possible access to its facilities.
