Art in Lockdown 2

Following the popular "Art in Lockdown" postcards we produced during the first lockdown we have now compiled a series of five Christmas themed postcards from our original paintings, entitled 'Art in Lockdown 2', click on the document link at the bottom of the page to give you a flavour.  These are now available to buy.  We have 50 packs and we will be asking for £7.00 per pack, this includes postage and packing.  
The proceeds will go towards our current Pond House fundraising appeal. If you would like to make a donation to this appeal in addition to purchasing the postcards, we can then arrange to send you the necessary gift aid declaration information.

To place your order please email us by clicking here Fundraising and stating how many packs you would like with your address details.  We will email you back with details for completing the purchase.

Landmark Anniversaries in 2020

The Camphill Movement celebrates its 80th anniversary this year and The Mount is also celebrating it’s 50th anniversary. Unfortunately we have had to postpone the planned reunion events at The Mount until safer times but in the meantime you can read about both anniversaries in the latest edition of the Camphill Pages by clicking here or you can download just the article on The Mount, written by our Chair of the Trustees Peter Bateson, at the bottom of this page.

We also have some 50th Anniversary Tote bags available to buy for £5. More details can be found by clicking here


Coronavirus update: 3rd July 2020

The majority of our residential students are back on-site having been at home since lockdown.  It has been a joy to see their delight as they catch up with friends and co-workers and resume sessions.  Some students continue to self-isolate at home and we are holding online tutorials with them.  

We are accepting limited essential visitors please contact us in advance.

We are hoping for a full return in September and are busy putting arrangements in place to facilitate this.  For now though, we are just grateful to have The Mount buzzing again with noisy, happy and healthy students, and are looking forward to making the most of the remaining weeks of term.

Art in Lockdown

In Cohousing we are finding creative ways to express how we feel during the lockdown. We decided to have regular art sessions to explore our inner landscapes - travelling with our inner pictures if we can't travel physically at the moment.

We have compiled a series of five postcards from our original paintings, entitled 'Art in Lockdown', click on the document link at the bottom of the page to give you a flavour.  These are now available to buy.  We have 50 packs and we will be asking for £6.00 per pack, this includes postage and packing.  The proceeds will go towards our current Pond House fundraising appeal.  

If you would like to make a donation to this appeal in addition to purchasing the postcards, we can then arrange to send you the necessary gift aid declaration information.

To place your order please email us by clicking here Fundraising and stating how many packs you would like with your address details.  We will email you back with details for completing the purchase.

Thank you in advance for supporting this very exciting initiative and on behalf of all our artists we hope that you enjoy our inner landscapes.  


The Mount now has it's own YouTube channel

Please visit and subscribe to our YouTube channel by clicking here.  This was set up to help us support those students who are currently at home during the coronavirus situation but is open to anyone to enjoy.

So far we have Eurythmy classes from Chrystal, Bakery tutorials from Cathy and a Cookery session from Becky.  

 More to follow.
