From sourdough and specialist cheese, to cider brewing and sausage making, there’s a course for everyone at The School of Artisan Food.

We are committed to the promotion of good food, good health, local employment, a sustainable environment and a safe supply chain


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 full-time Advanced Diploma in Artisan Baking.

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. More recently business and entrepreneurship courses have been added to the short course schedule and new course subjects are in development.The environment is serene and inspiring, but very accessible.
