Dining at The Gables

Once again Lyn is offering her home as a dining destination for lunches and dinners.  She will prepare a seasonal meal especially for your group of 6-10 family or friends, taking note of any dietary preferences.

Having guided and cooked for small group tours in many regions of Italy for the last 20 years, as well as owning a home in Puglia, Lyn’s food is very influenced by the fresh robust flavours of the Mediterranean diet.  Her potager provides most of the produce that Lyn will use when designing your meal.

POTTERY WORKSHOP

24 & 25 February and 9 March

Join Jennifer Maxwell and Lyn Baynes for a 3 day introduction to handbuilt and wheel-thrown pottery  at The Gables, Wainui.

Lyn is well-known for her cooking skills and her Italian cultural tours, Jennifer for her writing and her forays in France.  Less well know is their mutual love of clay and their respective histories as studio potters.  Lyn specialises in thrown and functional ware in the Mediterranean tradition, Jennifer in idiosyncratic animals using a full range of hand building techniques.

Small classes to be held in Lyn’s stunning new studio at The Gables, Wainui.  Two days demonstrating the basic principles of working with clay through guided group and individual experiences of hand building and wheel throwing.  A follow up day two weeks later learning to decorate, spray, wax and glaze the bisque fired work ready for the glost firing.  Tasty lunches and treats along the way.
