The limited size of the studio (10x15 feet) is suited tor those working on a small scale, in disciplines of crafts like calligraphy, basketry, millinery, textile design, or preparatory design work for 3-D objects.

Candidates should be over the minimum age of forty and be able to manage the short staircase. Church Cottage is warm, comfortable and private. It has been restored and furnished to a high standard and is near the countryside and the River Stour.
