Get a head start with this creative and fun pottery workshop. You will be learning wheel throwing and hand coiling.

About this event

Want to have a go on the potter's wheel and also hand-build a beautiful pot with coils?

We welcome you to have a taste of both at The Ceramicists Studio!

Our studio is very spacious, warm, cozy and full of clay-spiration.

We are passionate ceramicists and will make sure you make the most of it.

A demo of hand building with coils will kick off the workshop and after that, you can get your hands messy with pre-made coils (so the boring prep part is out of the way!)

Once you’ve nailed the coiling technique, we can simultaneously start throwing on the potter’s wheel - you will get two goes on the wheel - one with our guidance and another where you can freestyle!

By the end of the taster workshop you will have 2 bespoke ceramic pieces AT NO EXTRA COST (one hand-built and another thrown on the wheel) that we will fire and glaze (transparent glaze), which takes 3-4 weeks.

After this, they will be ready to collect from our studio or we can deliver them (UK only) to you at an added cost.

Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to ensure you get to see the coiling demo at the start of the workshop, otherwise you interrupt and shorten the class for everyone. We have a strict policy on late arrivals. We will do our best to go over the demo for you again however we must end the workshop at the intended time, so we cannot extend your workshop time.

We look forward to seeing you and hearing about your lovely clay ideas and enthusiasm.

P.S .Things you can coil build: Toothbrush cup, no.1 dad mug, paint brush pot holder, small vase, trinket dish, incense holder, spoon rest, a salt pig - the list is endless!

Please make sure to have your nails trimmed prior to the class.
Aprons will be provided. You might get messy so wear clothes you don't mind mucking up.
LOCATION: We are at SPACE Studios, Unit 4G, 90 Haymerle Road, SE15 6SB London.
You should arrive at the corner (where Bianca Road meets Haymerle Road) of the warehouse studios, where there is a large green gate and a yellow banner saying ‘The Ceramicists’.
Please buzz the studio bell or call our number to let you in.
We have free parking available in front of the studio.
COVID safety: Masks are obligatory when COVID risks are high, unless exempt. (-Jan 2022)
