Amisha Patel Feb 2024

Really fun session where we painted pottery! I would definitely recommend and I would do it again

Teacher's response

Thank you, Amisha, for your lovely review of our pottery painting session! We will let you know as soon as your pot has been fired. Looking forward to seeing your final piece. Thanks again

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024

There was another class at the studio, and people were constantly chatting and it was very loud throughout the class. Obviously such environment is not compatible with mandala workshop which is supposed to be contemplative and meditative process. The teacher’s approach was quite superficial without entering into the history of mandalas, just showing couple of examples on an iPad. Not recommended

Darrell Lim Ken Ji Feb 2024

If was great we really enjoyed the experience and our instructor provided so much help!

Teacher's response

Thank you! We are delighted to hear that you had a great experience, see you again soon to paint your pots

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024

Had a great time learning new skills in crochet. Nice venue and a very patient and skilled teacher. There were just two people learning so we both got lots of help. Also received extra yarn to complete the pot at home.

Teacher's response

Thank you, for your lovely review. We're so glad you had a wonderful time learning crochet skills at our venue. It was a pleasure to have you and help you create a beautiful pot. We hope you enjoy using your yarn at home and continue exploring crochet

Harry William Law Feb 2024

Lovely studio with a great vibe. Highly recommend. Amanda is a great help and really encouraging

Host's response

Thank you Harry, we very much enjoy having your creative energy in the studio. See you again soon

Nisha Feb 2024

The teacher was so lovely and helpful and made the experience really fun. The venue was quite quirky but I liked it. Me and my friend came just to learn how to do pottery and for a wholesome afternoon and it was perfect!

Teacher's response

Thank you Nisha, for your kind words. We are thrilled that you both enjoyed your pottery experience with us. We hope to see you again for another wholesome afternoon :)

Shivani Patel Feb 2024

Amanda was lovely, super helpful and the class was an incredible experience. Well worth the money!

Teacher's response

Thank you Shivani, We're thrilled to hear that you found the experience to be enjoyable. Hopefully see you again soon

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024

Amazing class. It was soo much fun and very cool trying to create different things. Definitely recommend!

Teacher's response

Thank you, We're thrilled that you enjoyed getting creative with us

Harraj Mann Feb 2024

Great session the instructor was really helpful but also made the experience go so smoothly. Me and my wife absolutely loved it!

Teacher's response

Thank you, Harraj! We enjoyed having you and your wife in the studio, and we're thrilled to hear that you both enjoyed your first experience on the wheel

Charlie Brazier Feb 2024

Fantastic experience! Amanda was so lovely and made the whole experience very fun and easy to follow for newbies. Would recommend!

Jason Feb 2024

We booked a private lesson to throw some pots together for a Valentine treat. Our host Amanda was a superb teacher. We had such a great time! All materials provided, venue was so cool. By the end of the session we had both made some bowls which looked exactly like bowls!

Parita Patel Feb 2024

Venue was easy to get to, all material was provided but it would have been good to know beforehand what type of product was going to be available as it gives one to decide on the type of pattern / design to paint.
Nevertheless we could do more than one piece but depends on time individual takes :)
Overall it was a fun experience and would do it again.

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024

Very enjoyable class. The clear and encouraging instructions from Amanda made our first time throwing easy and rewarding.

Lucie Brooks Butler Feb 2024

Brilliant, loved the session. Improved centring and worked up to bigger pots! can’t wait to go back

Shireen Feb 2024

After mentioning wanting to do crochet, I was gifted a voucher for my birthday and was excited to find a class which was closer to home and better value than other crochet classes I had seen. The location was great and really fun as it's in an old shipping container. The class itself was really good; I found the instructions given by the lovely teacher were clear and informative and it made it easier to pick up the basics and she was also very patient. During the class you start with the basics, firstly learning how to hold your hook and thread, how to create loops and from there, how to make a granny square. All the materials were provided and you get to take home the hook and a little bit of thread so you're able to finish making your creation in your own time. Would highly recommend this class if you're wanting to learn to crochet and you're a complete novice like I was.

The class was outstanding! We went for a team social with work, six of us in total. A lot of us were beginners, Amanda walked us through the process and was extremely patient as we learned along the way. It was a great laugh and a super cool experience, couldn’t recommend more! Thanks, Amanda!

Karina Ho Sep 2023

been wanting to visit the studio for a while and my first workshop today was very fun! Amanda and Mark are very passionate ,patient and friendly, also first time making a macramé plant hanger, can't wait for the next workshop

Paper Craft and Ink class review by Karina Ho - London

Sophie Giller Sep 2023

Valeria who was teaching the class and Amanda who runs the space were so so warm and welcoming.

The class from start to finish was totally amazing, Valeria explained things so clearly and had such an amazing approach to making which was so deeply skilled and experimental at the same time. I left feeling like I learnt SO MUCH in 3 hours which I look forward to putting into practice at home and coming back for another class soon. Valeria was incredibly attentive to also knowing what I was interested in through us talking and specifically what things I could learn that could suit me :)

Sam Sep 2023

Great informative teacher. Cool venue and great workshop . Got to take home our pot. Loved it!

We loved this class and all managed to come away with something cute. The teacher was super friendly and helpful, providing clear instructions on the day as to how we should be doing it. There was also a good amount of colors and materials provided so we could do whatever we want.

Raphaelle Roffo Sep 2023

Amanda is amazing, we had a lot of fun this morning and will definitely be back :)

Alexia Remoleux Sep 2023

Amanda was very nice and help us create nice plates and mugs in clay. We could paint them and make as many as we wanted in the hour left.

Highly recommended :)

Kitty Aug 2023

Super fun and informative! I came out of the lesson feeling a lot more confident with a knitting machine and am excited to start experimenting on my own. Valeria is clearly very passionate about machine knitting techniques and creativity, it was inspiring to see her work and come up with ideas.

Bela Dhanda Jul 2023

We had a fantastic time at out pottery taster class. Amanda was a great instructor and not only explained and demonstrated things really clearly but was so encouraging and made it a really fun, relaxing experience. Would definitely recommend!

Amanda was a great, friendly teacher. The studio is in a really interesting location, and the doors were open so it was lovely and fresh (outside was baking). She carefully taught us the techniques we needed. We got a tester lump of clay first, and then the proper one to make our final piece. We'll get to return to decorate in a few weeks. Looking forward to it! Definitely worth the money!

Sarah Liddell Jun 2023

A brilliant taster session with Amanda, who was very patient! Would highly recommend as an activity with friends for a fun & relaxing afternoon getting creative

Amanda Cotton was an amazing teacher, she made the lesson very engaging and interesting. It was our first time attending a class like this, it was my gift to my husband for our 2nd year anniversary and it was all so worth it, I would highly recommend doing this together as a couple or with friends and family. The only down side is I wish it was longer, I felt like the hour just flew by but that could be because we were having a lot of fun learning and creating. I can’t wait to see the final product in 8 weeks time and display it for memories.

Shapla Akter Mar 2023

Ella Marshall Sep 2022

I have always wanted to try wheel throwing and so really glad I found this taster class. The notification for my session didn’t come through so I wasn’t expected for my class but Amanda was amazing and super accommodating getting everything set up straight away. All materials where provided and a fab location at the wharf. Amanda was such a great teacher, giving really clear instructions, patience and just overall a really positive studio space. I would highly recommend and look forward to trying another class soon.

Thank you!

Catherine Ulloa Aug 2022

Excelente and fun class. We definitely recommend it! The studio and area are beautiful.
Thanks you :)

Dominic Fryd Jul 2022

Very friendly and helpful teacher.
The surrounding Location was really beautiful with an urban artistic feel.
The place was nice, had a little difficulty tracking it down but found in the end. Description of Bright orange and yellow containers might have made it easier for me to find.
Making the pot was fun, and you could be as daring as you like, the class was very autonomous and although you have instruction, you could get hands on and do it all yourself.

Very fun, very therapeutic. Good job!

Mahmuda Khatun Jul 2022

One of the best pottery classes I’ve had and I’ve had a few Amanda was so lovely, very patient and most importantly a really good teacher! The studio is in a nice location, everything was set up prior to our arrival and we got stuck in straight away. We came away with two lovely pots. I’m really looking forward to going back and glazing the pots! Thanks, Amanda!

Sanketh Rampes Jul 2022

Amanda is a brilliant teacher, was a really fun experience for two complete beginners. Great value and would thoroughly recommend. The studio is spacious and very welcoming!

Henrique Duarte Jun 2022

Amanda was 5 starts, the place had good conditions, we had a family workshop that was fantastic!

Matt Landau Jun 2022

We had such a lovely time with Amanda making pots! For most of our group it was our first time working with clay, and she made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. One of the best things about this class if the freedom to make whatever you like, starting with the basic pot shape. We ended up with a mix of decorative pieces, serving bowls, boxes, and even a lemon squeezer!

I would recommend this class to anyone, but especially for team or group events. We booked it for a surprise birthday, and it was so much fun. Many thanks again!

Sophia Mobbs Jun 2022

3 ClassBento workshops attended

- our teacher was lovely! She provided clear step by step guidance
- venue was a very cool studio in an outer-London location. Really nice place to get away and feel creative. I do recommend leaving a bit of extra time to find the studio if you are unfamiliar with the area.
- great value for money! £100 covers 2 people for an initial 2 hour wheel session and a glazing session a couple of weeks afterwards.
- overall we had a fantastic time and I recommend! A great activity to do with a partner, family member or friend. Be prepared to get hands on and a bit messy, as well as concentrate for 2 hours.

Sophie Daniels Jun 2022

I bought this as a present for my fiancés birthday and we had the best time! Amanda was so friendly and helpful and really got the best out of us! We were complete beginners and are now eager to do more! The private session means you get so much attention. The best gift!

Mirley Stolz May 2022

Amanda was lovely and we had a wonderful time at her class! As a team meeting in person for the first time, this was a great way to bond and to have some fun together! I highly recommend it!

Daniel Santos May 2022

Amanda was incredibly nice and she was excellent at explaining the process of wheel throwing. As a beginner with no experience I thought I would not be able to make much during the first class but ended up making two very nice bowls. It was a great experience and will 100% recommend!

Xara Mac Apr 2022

Great class! Really enjoyable, Amanda was lovely and helpful and even gave us extra time, almost double the time! It was a birthday present so we were allowed to BYOB which was also a great touch. If you’re thinking of booking a wheel throwing class don’t hesitate to choose this one. We would definitely recommend and will be back :)

Great surprise birthday present.
Thank you!

Jack Brittan Apr 2022

I'm so pleased I found this course, Amanda was endlessly patient and it made so much difference having a private class, as it is a tricky art to master! It was brilliant value compared to many others as I brought this for my boyfriend, but I got to come along for free too and the cost of glazing and firing your pots is included. The location is really great and it made for a really nice day!

Billy Lloyd Apr 2022

Amanda created a lovely environment for beginners. It was a very fun and creative experience.

Dan Abbott Apr 2022

Brilliant taster session class, excellent tuition (one to one) and lots of hands on practice on the wheel. It’s fun to take turn on the potters wheel and see your creation emerge … my pot was a bit wonky but it’s all part of the fun. Great studio atmosphere and a quirky location. Very patient and enthusiastic teacher and artist, which made for a pleasant, memorable and enjoyable evening.

We left with a sense of achievement and can’t wait to see our pots being glazed and fired in the kiln!

Looking forward to attending some follow up classes, after this taster session.

Aisha Matoo Mar 2022

The wheel throwing class was really good! Learned a lot about how to use the clay to make some cool ceramics

Amanda was really good too! Perfect amount of showing and teaching to actually doing it yourself

Amanda Cotton (the teacher) was the sweetest and most patient person. She took the time to make us feel extremely welcome by chatting a bit about what we expected out of the session, as well as giving us a brief rundown of her experience in the ceramics space. She also explained the key concepts, and give sufficient time for demonstrations and practice before guiding us to make our own ceramics. The venue definitely gave off the right vibes, complete with calming therapeutic music. All materials were provided, including an apron to keep your clothes clean - that being said, it can still get quite messy so be mentally prepared for that. But really, it's just part and parcel of the experience.

At the point of making the booking, I was quite surprised at the price but after the session I'm fully satisfied that I got my money's worth because of the individualized attention and mentoring that we received.

During the session, we got to create our own ceramic (whether it's a pot or a cup or a bowl) with all the required attention. Furthermore, for no additional cost, we can leave the ceramic there for it to dry out, glazed and put in the kiln. We were told that we would be invited back after a few weeks to do the glazing before it goes in the kiln again. Overall, I went in apprehensive, but came out feeling so happy, like I left an art therapy session. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a couples' activity, or even something to do with a loved one.

What a brilliant way to spend the day! Amanda is an amazing teacher and was very attentive to our whole group, almost everyone was a first timer and felt very comfortable and at ease with the class. We all thoroughly enjoyed the class and would definitely do it again.

Amanda was a fantastic teacher, and I had a really wonderful session learning the basics of pottery. Looking forward to going back to paint then collect my bowls in the next few weeks - I’d really recommend taking Amanda’s workshop for a super relaxing and instructive session!

We had a fantastic time learning to throw with Amanda in her studio. Her one on one approach to teaching creates a truly bespoke learning environment. Can't wait to come back and glaze our pieces ☺️

The class was amazing! The teacher explained everything really well. She was really nice and supportive. The venue was nice and spacious, I liked the fact that we used white clay instead of the brown one it was more unique. The class is a really good for its money we got to make two pots. I learnt about how different clay works and the basics of using the wheel. It was a fantastic experience I highly recommend.
