Welbeck Estate - The School of Artisan Food

Our FdSc Artisan Food Production course is delivered by professional artisan food specialists at The School of Artisan Food, based on the Welbeck Estate, alongside food technology specialists at Nottingham Trent University. This means you'll get to experience our own fantastic facilities at Brackenhurst as well the purpose-built training rooms for artisan food production at Welbeck.

Welbeck Estate

Based in the heart of Sherwood Forest on the Welbeck Estate in North Nottinghamshire, The School of Artisan Food is based in the former fire stables. Newly refurbished training rooms are specially equipped for the teaching of breadmaking, cheesemaking, brewing, butchery, charcuterie and preserving.

Training Room One and bakery

A centrepiece of the School, Training Room One features marble-topped workstations, state-of-the-art commercial and domestic ovens, and lots of light and space.

Butchery training room

Butcher's block workstations and professional equipment allow this versatile room to accommodate a variety of meat based classes and modules. This training space is complemented by two separate walk-in chillers, food preparation and cooking facilities.

Dairy training rooms

A dedicated dairy training suite includes a fully equipped cheese and dairy room, purpose-built maturing facilities and its own adjoining, designated classroom.

Resource room

Computer facilities, multimedia material and a collection of literature and journals provide a productive environment in which to study and host meetings.

Demonstration theatre

The 80-seat lecture theatre has a kitchen especially designed for lectures and demonstrations. Students benefit from an overhead camera which links to a large screen for optimal viewing of the work surface. The theatre is supported by a designated preparation kitchen.

Common room

The Common Room provide students with comfortably furnished areas where they can continue with academic activities or simply unwind in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. This space is next to the Lecture Theatre and can be used as a breakout area for refreshments or group discussion.
