Art Play London was founded by Silva Castellani in 2018, starting in galleries such as Phillips, and pop up venues around London.

Art Play is now a new art studio which opened in East London in February 2022, where children and adults of all ages are free to release their imaginations and inner creativity.

Art Play has a strong focus and the environment and aims to educate children and adults on their environmental impact through art, using a variety of sustainable mediums and materials.

Art Play is part of the worldwide Precious Plastic community which means it will be a plastic collection point for people to drop off their HDPE plastic which would otherwise end up in landfills or the ocean. The plastic is then shredding and melted and turned into useful objects and pieces of art, such as plant pots and coasters.

Love this class. Making my own mini ecosystem was really awesome. So many workshops going on around us. It was pretty awesome

Kusum Pun Marjara Feb 2024


The venue is great love that it’s surrounded by the market
The materials I feel were a little dissapointing. Not enough colours / variety of paint and other mediums like water pencils, pastels
The space is wonderful loved the vibe, the music and location
Really looking forward to going back

Millie Mason Feb 2024


I've become addicted to this place - and my artistic skills are definitely improving Fantastic class and staff ad usual and tried the hot choc which was delish

Chloe Woolley Feb 2024


Booked this for a friends birthday and was a great class. Painting was very accessible to paint for anyone and the teacher Abi was really good!

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


We booked this as a work group outing, which the team thoroughly enjoyed. They loved teaching, had a good laugh and enjoyed be able to take their masterpiece home with them at the end of the evening. Would recommend to anyone wanting a team activity.

Adrian Feb 2024


Loved it was a vibe drinks was flowing art was in effect will definitely be back

Sip and Paint Class review by Adrian - London

Layla Shire Feb 2024


Materials were great, vibe was cool and I’m definitely happy with my artwork! I would definitely rebook - the only issue was the music kept cutting out.

Sophie Feb 2024


We booked this experience for a hen do! We really loved it once we got going, but when we turned up the venue was unprepared for our group, with no easels, paints or canvasses laid out and the staff seemed a tad confused by our arrival, despite having booked months in advance. But once we did get started, as we were delayed a tad by this process, we had a really nice time!

Grace Kingsbury Feb 2024


Sam was a really engaging, friendly and funny teacher. He helped everyone without any rushing and even though there are pauses whilst everyone catches up with each step, it never felt slow paced or boring.
Note - there are 3 options for design / texture and you can’t pick different widths of band.
Would definitely recommend this class for a fun afternoon with your friends.

Jewellery Making class review by Grace Kingsbury - London

Millie Mason Feb 2024


I came here with my sister and we had such a lovely time and made a beautiful candle. The class was small and the venue was so creative and inspiring. Our teacher was really knowledgeable and sweet. We will be back!

Friendly teacher.
Lots of fun.
Good value
Happy I could take candles the same day

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


Took someone here on a first date. Took the unguided session. The vibes were perfect. The hip hop, r&b set the DJs was playing, the atmosphere. The art materials. Truly a great way to connect as well as have fun. Very much good value for money

Jade Olivo Feb 2024


Aija was a super informative host and explained each step of the terrarium making class so we can learn why each step was important - helpful if we want to try at home!
She was really engaged and helpful :)
The class was lots of fun and had a wonderful terrarium to take home with us at the end which we loved. Good amount of people in the class, not too busy! Although bit disjointed with the extra table on the side.
Would recommend :D

Terrarium class review by Jade Olivo - London

Millie Mason Feb 2024


I came here with my sister and my mum as we keep running out of ideas for evenings out together. We had such a cute evening - and it's a very decent price too!

Will James Feb 2024


I've been to Art Play before but this was the first time on free flow. The staff are so so sweet. Helped me decide what to paint and made some great mocktails. The DJ was such a good touch

Ema Blue Feb 2024


Friday was too much fun! I came with a group of 6. We had spacious tables, pizza, music, drinks (margaritas are good here). The painting part was good too. It's free style which I like and the resources we're great!

Rachel Kobe Feb 2024


I came to Art Play for the first time. The girl at the door (sorry I can't remember her name!) Was wonderful and welcomed us in. The music was flowing - the bar was popping and there were lots if choices for Art recourses. Will go to the pottery workshop next!

Ashanti Smith Feb 2024


Me and my boyfriend were looking for some cute new date ideas and we came across Art Play. I am so happy this place exists I wish I new before. I'm back next week with my girlie's

Taomi Mason Feb 2024


None of my friends are particularly creative so we didn't know what to expect. But the music and the drinks flowing really helped - staff were cool and the recourses were amazing quality

Usif Amed Feb 2024


Came here with my boys. I haven't done art since school but it really doesn't matter here. The studios got such good energy and got our creative juices flowing

Yanis Pepper Feb 2024


The DJ was on fireeeee with the old school bangers. I've already booked for the next 3 weeks. My painting turned our pretty well tooo

Iggy Mars Feb 2024


I've come to lots of art play workshops- this is my first free flow and it was awesome. Silva showed me and my friends around and made us feel super welcome

Penny Smith Feb 2024


Came here by myself- I was nervous at first but the staff were so lovely and welcoming and I am pretty impressed with my painting too! I ordered a zucca pizza which was so good

Danny Eronzo Feb 2024


I came on the Friday free flow night- lovely staff and lovely energy

The cocktails are pretty good too

Georgia Hunter Feb 2024


Omg! I came on the old school r&b night and they played alllll my favourite bangers. So much fun- can't wait for girl power night!

Finley Sherrald Feb 2024


So excited about this new Friday free flow night- I'm so bored of the regular club nights. I will definitely be back

Seb Stoner Feb 2024


Definitely recommend this place! I passed by after work two weeks ago and have come back for a few of their sessions. Love this new Friday night DJ painting session

Olive Moon Feb 2024


I came here for my best friend's birthday and it was such good vibes- we all did our own free style painting and their Expresso martinis are so good

Painting class review by Olive Moon - London

Remi Burgher Feb 2024


Went with my mum and auntie and we all really enjoyed the class. The teacher was very helpful, friendly and funny! Would definitely recommend and go again.

Margarita Posner Feb 2024


Very friendly coordinator, lots of fun.
Great choice of scents and glitter
Fun locale
Would recommend

Annabelle Volpi Feb 2024


I thought it would like a party with lively music but it was very quiet.

Teacher's response

Dear Annabelle, We apologize for the disappointing experience you had at our event. Your feedback is valuable, and we're committed to making improvements for future events. Thank you for bringing these concerns to our attention!

Isatu Kamara Feb 2024


So much fun, really soothing activity and the music playing was great. Would definitely return!

Neringa Feb 2024


It's a lovely place to be. I did unguided free flow canvas painting. I could get all the materials. Only one thing I was a little bit dissatisfied, it were brushes, as very poor quality and looked worn out, and couldn't find different angles brushes. But still managed to do my art work. I used cotton buds I brought from home too.

Painting class review by Neringa - London

Jeanine Yu Feb 2024


This is my second painting session and Jess is amazing She explain the primary and secondary colour concept, and the complimentaru coulour. How to use it and the effect of mixing the different colour. She also explained how to best use different brushes to show different texture. Was a really fun one Really enjoyed it

Momina Husayn Feb 2024


Too kids with friends. Solca was very friendly and allowed the adults to participate as well. She was very accommodating and good interpersonal skills. Would recommend.

Elliott Cox Feb 2024


Had a really great time. It was my first time and thoroughly enjoyed myself. All the equipment I needed, the pizza was lovely and the staff were friendly.

Unguided Free Flow Painting Workshop review by Elliott Cox - London

Gemma Howells Feb 2024


Really enjoyable night. Teacher was great fun. Fun date night. Would definitely recommend to friends

Justina Rodzeviciute Feb 2024


We absolutely loved it! And everyone got to keep candles. Great time together with a team and we loved the guidance from teacher.

Patricia de Benito Feb 2024


Wonderful class! The teacher is so nice and helpful and at the same time gives you space. Very happy!

Jumaimah Begum Feb 2024


Really fun and an enjoyable experience. We did the unguided up-cycling canvas painting class and all we had to do was go in choose which canvas we wanted to paint over choose our paints and start. Very good value for the money as everything is provided and the canvas is large. Would most likely come again.

Muskaan Rizvi Feb 2024


Simon held an amazing art lesson for our team of 25! Everyone had an amazing time, I couldn’t recommend Art Play enough for a team building social.

Folake Akinjiola Feb 2024


My daughters and I had a lovely time and we are looking forward to coming again. The staff were friendly and always smiling

Aishah Feb 2024


I took my daughter for her first pottery class today and she had the best time. Their teacher, Sorcha, was amazing. She taught them very well and was super friendly. She even let us get involved which was a bonus. I would definitely recommend it. Great location!
Only negative is that there was no initial welcome. We were standing at the wrong entrance for a while, and although the staff could see us, they didn’t inform us and avoided any form of eye contact.

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


Great pottery class for a rainy and grey day to lift your mood! Excellent teacher and have come away with a lovely pot. Thank you!

Zekie Feb 2024


Class is overcrowded, making it difficult to get a good view from anywhere but the front, which means you might miss out on crucial techniques. There are similar-priced classes available with smaller groups, offering a better learning environment.

Teacher's response

Dear Zekie, We appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback on your experience. We're sorry to hear that the overcrowding affected your ability to fully engage with the class content. Your comments are important to us, and we will explore ways to address this issue to enhance the learning environment for all participants.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we hope to have the opportunity to offer you a better experience in the future!

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


The class itself was really fun and the teacher was great! However the organisation and rebooking was very difficult to do. Contacting the teacher, the number provided never had a response the only way to eventually contact was through email replies which took long to organise and made communication difficult.

Teacher's response

Dear valued customer, We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the class and found the teacher to be great! However, we're sorry to hear about the difficulties you experienced with rebooking and communication. Your feedback is important to us, and we will work to improve our organization and communication processes to ensure a smoother experience for all participants.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Anushka Lahiri Feb 2024

It was relaxing while catching up with a friend after a long time. Good choice for a different date :)

Lucy Feb 2024


Lovely and affordable activity to do with my 5 year old. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend

Unguided Pottery Painting Upcycling Workshop review by Lucy - London

Edie Walwyn Feb 2024


It was a very pleasant and enjoyable evening! I recommend to anyone who needs to decompress after work.

Cher Fulton Feb 2024


The instructor had her back to us for most of the session so we struggled to follow the guide. Would have been nice to get some tips, especially to better the art. I left mine there as I wasn’t proud of the finished result.

The place was noisy and could barely hear the instructor.

Teacher's response

Dear Cher, We appreciate you sharing your feedback with us regarding your recent class experience. We apologize for any frustration caused by the instructor's positioning and the noise level in the venue. Your feedback is essential for us to improve, and we will take immediate steps to address these concerns to ensure a more conducive learning environment in future sessions.

Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention, and we hope to have the opportunity to provide you with a much-improved experience next time.

Virag Szabo Feb 2024


Lovely class, had a great time! Our teacher Simon facilitared a great class!
Will definitely be back again!

Claudia Feb 2024


Our teacher Aija, was very welcoming and kind and ensured we had everything we needed for the paintings. She was easy to follow and lovely to have as a guide.

Abin (sorry if this isn’t the correct spelling) assisted on the day and was fantastic, he was very friendly and ensured that we were taken care of!

Amelia Leleu Feb 2024


It was really fun and I had a good time painting. I did this with my dad and we had a really great time. At the beginning, one of the staff members forgot we were there and didn’t give us a canvas and we just sat there for 20 minutes. Lol. In the end we did ask her and she gave us one. She was pretty nice abt it but did kinda make it sound a bit eh. Other than that other staff members were really helpful and kind towards us and gave some art tips.

Painting class review by Amelia Leleu - London

Darren Antonio Hall Feb 2024


an amazing experience for the freeflow workshop
had a great time and the staff were very friendly

Alice Carter Feb 2024


We had so much fun, me and my mum went for her birthday and the teacher was very welcoming (we had elena). Would really recommend

Jan Hoang Xuan Feb 2024


Attending that painting class for with my wife our anniversary was such a blast! It was our first time trying something like that, and let me tell you, it was awesome. The staff there were super chill and helpful, walking us through everything and making sure we had a blast.

They had loads of materials to choose from, so we could really let our creativity run wild. Plus, the vibe was so laid-back and chill, it felt like we were just hanging out and having fun. It was a nice change of pace from our usual routine, and we absolutely loved it.

We're already talking about checking out some other classes they offer because we had such a great time. Overall, it was a memorable experience that we'll definitely be doing again.

Anna Silins Feb 2024


Great class! Took my brother to the terrarium making class for his birthday and he absolutely loved it! A must for any plant lovers

Minali Feb 2024


My friend and I did the free flow painting workshop and we loved it, the atmosphere in the studio was great! The staff were friendly and helpful and we created some lovely art work. We will definitely be returning for a guided class!

No occasion. Me and a friend signed up for the unguided free flow canvas painting which was nice something different to do on a Saturday. Venue was nice also.

Amelia Fowler Feb 2024


It was a very fun date afternoon activity, and I would recommend to do with your partner or group of friends!

Teacher's response

Hi Amelia, Thank you for taking the time to write this review! We appreciate your recommendation and feedback, and hope to see you again soon!

Zahra Macphail Feb 2024


It was a day out with my daughter and we both enjoyed the art class. Convenient location, cozy facilities, friendly atmosphere. All supplies were provided - we very much liked the little red berets, that helped to create the mood.

Moneeka Thakur Feb 2024


We all had a lovely time and the team at Art Play were great! Thank you!

Kathryn Feb 2024


Really enjoyable course, fun and modern location and the course leader was very nice and helpful

Holly Feb 2024


Great idea and concept, although it's a 'drop in' probably best to come on time as when we arrived they were trying to set up for the class and it felt a little awkward trying to ask the staff for where to sit and find things etc. But other than it was a great time, pizza was excellent and the tunes were banging

Paige Feb 2024


I bought tickets to this class for my friends birthday. When I bought the tickets I didn’t get any confirmation email and when I tried emailing again I didn’t get a reply. Once we got there though everything was great. Staff were nice and the Prosecco was constant. 4/5

Elliot Feb 2024


Sara was a great teacher - fun, really patient and very helpful when we needed help.

Across the 3 hours we moulded, designed sanded, fired and polished our own pieces of silver jewellery (which was either a necklace penetrant or pair of earrings.

Definitely worth doing!

Sabira Feb 2024


I treated my sister to pottery class at Artplay. We we're so excited as it was both our first time. Our teacher, Sorcha was amazing. She helped everyone with her easy tips and advice. All tools are provided, refreshments available inside. Overall it was worth the money, time and experience. I will definitely book again for different classes as they have so much going on!

Jemma Mahey Feb 2024


We loved this class! It was easy to follow and I liked how you could personalize the painting too! Teacher was very helpful and friendly! Venue was great! Would definitely do it again!

Ivy Chan Feb 2024


I had a free flow class which meant we didn’t have a teacher and do our own thing. This was all good but there weren’t many paint brushes available for us as there was a class going on at the same time. Overall, it was a lovely experience for a date activity though!

Aditya Mesta Feb 2024


The venue was excellent, with great staff. It provided a fun experience for my girlfriend and me. We're looking forward to visiting again soon.

Unguided Free Flow Painting Workshop review by Aditya Mesta - London

Beatriz Bailo Feb 2024


Had a great time at Sip and Paint class with Abi.
Our painting came out super cool and now I want to do more!
Will definitely go back!

Marina Veiga Feb 2024


I booked the Sober Sip and Paint for my SILs hen do and the activity was a massive hit. Most of us were not artsy but managed to create something beautiful with 7 out of 8 of us taking our creations home. Our teacher was Sophia and she was friendly and helpful all the way through out the activity. Since our session was 10.30am to 12.30pm, we were able to leave the canvas there and collect them later which was helpful.

Sober Sip and Paint Class review by Marina Veiga - London

Simi Ayeniyegbe Feb 2024


Great class & plenty of scents to pick from! Decorating the candles were especially fun to do

Daveena Thakkar Feb 2024


It was very busy so quite tight with regards to space. Staff were helpful and we enjoyed the experience! I had booked unguided free flow painting and wish there was a wider range of colours to choose from. Many of the bottles were near to empty and tissues/cloths would have been handy.

Diane Wilson Feb 2024


Attended with a friend as we are both interested in making candles. Really enjoyed the session and sophie was brilliant. The content was good relaxing atmosphere and everyone was very friendly. Will definitely be signing up for more classes.

Amina Musoke Feb 2024


It was good learning how to create something new.
My teacher was nice, friendly and really helped me to create something. She really helped me create my clay pot in a nice and clear way.

Amina

Charlotte Jones Feb 2024


There was no teacher - which I had kind of expected there to be when I booked

Teacher's response

Dear Charlotte, We apologize for any confusion. The workshop description states that the class does not include a teacher, but we'll ensure better communication in the future. Thank you for your feedback.

Jewel Feb 2024


My husband and I attended the Sip & Paint Portrait making class on Valentines Day. We really enjoyed the activity, the instructor was very patient and checked in often to make sure everybody was following through whilst also providing the space to follow your own creative instincts. Loved every minute of it & highly recommended :-))

Painting class review by Jewel - London

Jackie Smith Feb 2024


This was so much fun! The teacher was patient and encouraging and we all became more confident. Lovely fun atmosphere and you get to take home your own piece of art.
Friendly bar staff.
An overall great experience for all ages

Elliott Martin Feb 2024


Belated valentines celebration. Really great experience, the teacher was new to the job but she handled the social atmosphere perfectly - nice and relaxed with a perfect level of instructions. The guy at the bar offered amazing service. Materials were great. Very happy and satisfied.

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


It was great. The teacher was amazing and we will def recommend it to friends!

Sean Feb 2024


Went for Valentine’s Day with my partner, only thought we’d be making one candle but we made 2, which was great. Everything was explained well and we had a fun time with the other people in our group, pleasant experience will try art play again!

Candle Making class review by Sean - London

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


The class was really easy to follow and the teacher was engaging. The venue is quite busy, but it wasn’t distracting. I also like that even though it was a guided class, you were still encouraged to use your creative freedom to make your piece unique. You do have to buy a separate bag (£1.50) to transport the piece home in though, so come prepared with a big bag!

Priscilla Tsang Feb 2024


A nice place to do art work with kids and besties ️ come to enjoy with creativity

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


It was a bit too loud & crowded and it was hard to hear the instructions. Overall, it felt a little bit chaotic and disorganised. I guess they need to make smaller groups or get a bigger space for the studio.

Teacher's response

Dear valued customer, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We appreciate your insights and will take them into consideration as we strive to improve our studio experience. We'll explore options like smaller groups or a larger space to ensure a more comfortable environment for everyone.

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


We went to the candle making workshop and it was amazing! Aija was so personable and friendly. She didn’t rush us through the process and provided lots of information and tips. Lots to choose and decorate from, you can really make it your own. Left having a perfect candle and evening.

We were late to the class due to train issues, but they welcomed us regardless. The class was relaxed and at a good pace with plenty of help and encouragement going around.
Thank you!

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


I booked this experience as a Valentines Day gift for my partner and myself and it was incredible! The venue was intimate and chic, our instructor was brilliant at keeping us engaged, informed and comfortable. She made sure the mood was fun and creative. All materials provided were useful and I would definitely recommend this to others who would be interested in candlemaking.

Anita Ikpea Feb 2024


Valentine’s Day class: very good concept to paint and easy to learn. Would have been nice if we went a little slower and painting techniques were explained in more detail (but understandable due to time constraints). Materials were fine and we were able to request more if needed.

Sahreen Siddiqui Feb 2024


Such a fun activity- will def come again. Enjoyed this with my family.
Trainer was knowledgeable and engaging.

Aiya Zhussupova Feb 2024


Great teacher, lots of fun and a cute ring in the end :) Recommend this activity 100%

Really enjoyed this class! Teacher Sam was amazing at explaining things clearly, encouraging and supporting all participants. He made it fun & achievable. I’d never done anything like this before, but really pleased with the ring I created. Highly recommend this workshop!

Mason Burns Feb 2024


Our teacher Sophie was amazing, we did candle making and she taught us so much about candles. The results were brilliant and had so much fun!

Lovely atmosphere and such a fun way to relax and make art with no pressure <3

We were visiting London for a couple days and I’d booked a range of activities including this. We didn’t have a teacher so it was unguided painting. The staff that served us were really nice and friendly, but seemed a bit unorganised sometimes - some of the instructions weren’t massively clear, so when I went up to ask a question, they would always refer me to someone else and then we’d end up getting a vague response anyway. But they were really sweet. The venue was lovely and big, in a great location. Materials were perfect and good quality, all except from the bag we had to buy to take the canvases home in, which wasn’t big enough for the canvases? We enjoyed it thoroughly and thought it was very good value for money. We loved how our paintings were included in the price and all of the painting inspiration we could choose from. Overall was so so good and I’d absolutely do it again!

Lenard Pratt Feb 2024


Went for Valentine’s Day and we had a blast. The instructor was super helpful and super kind, every step of the way she made sure to ensure that everything was proceeding smoothly and couldn’t stop cracking jokes. I came in not expecting much but for how much we paided I can say I was pleasantaly surprised and if you asked me to go again I would take you up on the offer

Jalebi Jalebi Feb 2024


The evening went really well

Only thing is that at the start we were confused with who to talk to about the booking. Nonetheless the people we spoke to were really lovely and informative

Nicola Guderley Feb 2024


Denna was an amazing teacher/host, very funny. Great memories with my sister and I genuinely love the ring that I made!

Cameron Mason Feb 2024


Sophie was amazing! Many thanks for a memorable experience and making Valentine’s Day special!

Went for Valentine's Day and it was the perfect couples experience. The instructor was very helpful and the instructions were clear.

Gareth Amfo-Agyei Feb 2024


A fabulous experience as a novice painter. The teacher was extremely friendly and patient. Thank you

Jordan Feb 2024


I booked this for myself and my boyfriend for his birthday and we both loved it! Sam is a brilliant teacher and made the class very welcoming and a good laugh. We both left the workshop with beautiful rings, having never done anything like this before. Both a great experience and lovely to walk away with something we can both treasure. Would absolutely recommend this workshop!

Adela Feb 2024


Thomas was an excellent teacher. It was very easy and enjoyable to follow his workshop. I enjoy it and hopefully, I will repeat it with him

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


It was a lovely chilled venue that was easy to locate in the market.
We were greeted warmly and given instructions.
I completely understand it’s self led but would have been nice if we had some more information. Also, the range of pottery to up-cycle was really limited and the space to complete quickly became cramped.

Dmitry Nazarenko Feb 2024


Took this class as a couple for Valentine's Day celebrations and loved every minute of it. Sara was a fantastic instructor - very personable, funny, and patient at every step of the process. She made the learning fun and was there to help out at any point if we were struggling or having issues. We ended up making some cute pendants and are looking forwards to wearing and showing them off!

Kristine Feb 2024


The teacher Aija was fantastic. We painted a lovely sunset painting with palm trees in a relaxed environment which was great

Alex Dee Feb 2024


Sam was so brilliant. Knowledgeable, fun, and made sure everyone was supported and happy despite us being a decent size group! We had such a fab evening and the rings are amazing. Highly recommend

Jack Bessell Feb 2024


Very disorganised, felt like we were a burden to the staff

Equipment was good though

Teacher's response

Dear Jack, We're sorry for the disorganization you encountered. Your feedback is noted, and we'll strive to improve. We're glad you found the equipment satisfactory and hope to provide a better experience next time.

Julia Waetzig Feb 2024


accidentally joined our school group (which was free but sold out) and ended up spending 35 pounds per person.

Santiago Bermudez Feb 2024


Our class went very well and we came out with amazing rings, all thanks to our teacher Sam, who was so knowledgeable and funny. He made our experience great :)

Rosie Feb 2024


Brilliant class in fab location. Only 3 in the class, which made it a very personalised experience. Good amount of time, working high quality materials, and a fab finished terrarium to take home. They shared lots of tips on caring for and making more terrariums, which I will definitely do!

Christoph Feb 2024


Excellent time painting and chatting, the teacher was helpful, we were given all the paint we could ever need.

I enjoyed the candle making class conducted by Sophie. Very helpful and friendly teacher. Warm and friendly environment. Would definitely go back and try another course.

Carrie Sims Feb 2024


This was a lovely class, very relaxing and enjoyable. The teacher was easy to follow and explained things very well. Felt like good value for money too. Would book again.

Anne Kennedy Feb 2024


Had fun painting and catching up with my friend! We shared a bottle of Prosecco, and enjoyed the atmosphere/music too. We did free flow painting, so no teacher, but all materials are provided. One tip: when you’re choosing what to paint, bear in mind the paint is quite thick/fast drying and I couldn’t find a very good thin brush, so painting thin lines was challenging.

Zhané West Feb 2024


We took the free flow class. The store itself was very busy but the staff were great. We were shown where everything is and truly left to our own devices which was really nice. They did not rush us for our seats or peak over our shoulders to see if we’re any good or not :’) it was a great experience, went down a treat with a bottle of white. We will definitely be back!

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


It’s a guided class, but the teacher only advised everyone to draw his/her own. She is encouraging. I don’t feel I was really guided.

Teacher's response

Dear valued customer, We're sorry to hear that you didn't feel adequately guided during your class. Our aim is to provide clear instruction and support to all participants, and we regret any disappointment you experienced. Your feedback is important to us, and we'll use it to improve our teaching approach to ensure a more fulfilling experience for all students.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us!

Michelle Brown Feb 2024


Thank you Aija for a really relaxed and encouraging workshop. I haven't ever really painted much but had a few hours to myself without the Children and thought it would be a lovely thing to do for me! I wasn't disappointed. Thank you for your thoughtful guidance and your gentle and approachable manner. I enjoyed learning about how to sketch and paint from a reference picture and how to mix paint. It's something I'd definitely recommend!

Susie Huntington Feb 2024


My daughter and I had a fun time in a viby venue. She was maybe a bit old for the class (age 11). Ideal perhaps for 8-10yrs.

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024

2 ClassBento workshops attended


have been looking to be a little more creative this year and so booked this session entirely on a whim just to try something new. the session was unguided but i think it was better that way as i focused less on perfectionism and more on just enjoying painting experience as it happened.
the venue was quite busy on sunday at 3pm and it was a bit unclear that you need to check in at the bar. was let waiting a little while but the staff were friendly and it wasn’t much of an issue - but definitely show up a little early as per recommendations.
the supplies were in pretty good condition and the space was generally tidy and intimate. it was easy enough to find a space to sit as a solo visitor, larger groups may have needed to wait a while or split up. note that there’s no seating by class/session, every visitor will sit in the same main area, so something to be aware of. it’s also fairly noisy when busy, as there’s also music going; if you want to go and totally zone out maybe consider bringing some noise cancelling headphones (which i did)! once finished, i was allowed to leave my painting to dry while i walked around elsewhere, got food, etc., as long as i came back before closing to collect it.
overall i had a really good time, having not picked up a paintbrush since i was in high school it was a treat to relax and paint for a couple of hours, and i’d 100% come back alone or with a friend. for £18 it was well worth the cost, and now i have my very own unique artwork to bring home!

Lots of materials to choose from.

Very good value for money.

Booked for my adult nieces and sister. We had so much fun! None of us were artists but we created something that we could still put on a wall. The teacher was patient with us and helped if we needed it.

Mayeesha Islam Feb 2024


Was great fun and such a relaxing environment. Staff were friendly and smiley and the music and vibe was 10/10!

Alan Burnell Feb 2024


I was given a voucher for the course for my birthday. I was a little apprehensive, but I enjoyed it hugely. The teacher was excellent. Warm friendly and helpful. I learnt half a dozen new techniques and a completely new Of using acrylic paints to create a picture. I would thoroughly recommend it. I will be bringing my granddaughter here for a class for her birthday. I’m sure she will love it too.

Sophie Palmer Feb 2024


We attended for a birthday and had a lot of fun. Our teacher Sophie was super helpful and friendly. There was a lot of choice of scents and decorations which was great.

We came to Art Play to celebrate our friends 30th birthday, and did the 1.5 hand clay class. Our instructor Thomas was sooo lovely, funny and informative.

Great class - perfect balance of easy going and fun but with the right amount of guidance

Sharleen Cohen Feb 2024


The self guided workshop was good, just stacks of magazines, scissors and glue and off you go! Perfect if you dont collect magazines at home to see whether you like collage and try out some ideas

Sam Feb 2024


Got this class as a gift to my boyfriend for our anniversary! Was a really great class, very engaging and fun with a lovely teacher :)

Catalina Griffiths Feb 2024


Sam, out teacher, was so lovely and funny. He took a lot of care to make sure that everyone's rings turned out beautifully and was very knowledgeable. He delivered the class in a very clear and at times, hilarious manner and I would absolutely recommend this class to others interested in ring making.

Hannah Crosby Feb 2024


Sophie was amazing! Had a lovely and relaxing evening! Plans to go and pick up my candles tomorrow! If you struggle to find the venue, just google the LuluLemon in Spitalfields Market and it is next door!

Stephanie Lunn Feb 2024


I had such a good time making my bowl out of clay. I'm looking forward to using it! thank you to your team for their patience and help making my piece at least useable!

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


There was other classes on thats why too much distraction and I couldn’t hear teacher voice properly even. Lack of space and knowledge

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


Such a good experience! Really nice friendly atmosphere, helpful, approachable teaching, and really well organised.

It was definitely a fun time learning

Keep up the good work

Tanya Kuhrt Feb 2024


Fun and enjoyable morning and the tutor was great. Only downside was I didn’t realise it was air drying clay rather than real clay so we weren’t able to make anything that could contain food or drink. But maybe it said it on the ad and I missed it.

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


Attended the free flow session as a total beginner with a friend. The whole place was a really good vibe, with an amazing playlist and free flow of paint and tools. It was just a fun activity to destress after work, would definitely do it again

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


Relaxed free flow painting unguided class - nice activity but could do with a few more paint colour options

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


Great place!
I would recommend having more magazines for the collage as most of the material was from the same “Artist” magazine which had limited options.

Laura Cognet Feb 2024


Abi was great! I hadn't held a brush since kindergarten but I made a masterpiece thanks to her! I had a lot of fun

Sophia Collin Feb 2024


Quite expensive for the time you actually spend making the candles which was around 50 minutes and most of that time is just listening to instruction. Would be good to have more decoration and essential oil oprions

We had such a great time doing our painting! Is hard to start at blank sheet, but one you've started you can't stop!
The teacher was very helpful and supported everyone on their painting journey, so we got a perfect result in the end!
Thank you!
I will definitely book a few classes more with my friends!

Humera Khalifa Feb 2024


Good value for money, painting was accessible for beginners. Everything setup well and on time. Few improvements to make- have paint bottles and tissue paper around so feels less awkward to ask. Teacher can also be a bit more attentive to attendees!

Jovian Mead Feb 2024


Great time everyone was welcoming and nice there was so much help with finding items.
There was a great vibe in the space which made me and my guest comfortable.
Everyone was very nice and helpful that night.
Thank you

Mollie-Eve Feb 2024


Myself and 9 others attended the Sip & Paint class on Saturday for my hen party and had the best time! It was the perfect activity to do with family and friends as it suited all ages and was very relaxed! Even those amongst us who swore we couldn't paint were impressed by our creations at the end which is all credit to Abi and her amazing talent and instruction. We were provided with ample materials, more prosecco than we could even drink as we were so focused on our painting and laughed so much along the way.
Thankyou Abi for a wonderful afternoon, we would definitely come back in the future and recommend to others.

Grace Feb 2024


It was so much fun! I will definitely be returning for more guided classes. The teacher was also brilliant x

Painting class review by Genevieve Price - London

Caroline Bletcher Feb 2024


We had a nice time at the class and the teacher was friendly but we didn’t feel there was much teaching involved. It was a very big group and we were only given a few tips at the beginning. The teacher didn’t take time to look at our paintings individually or give us any individual tips.

Anonymised ClassBento student Feb 2024


Someone put upfront on a stand a painting with written "from the river to the sea". Noone took it off from there. It made me very uncomfortable. I thought I go to a cultural place and was not prepared to see antisemics Moto in a place like that.

Teacher's response

Dear valued customer, We sincerely apologize for any discomfort caused by the painting featuring the phrase "from the river to the sea" at Art Play. Please know that this artwork was painted by a customer and not endorsed by Art Play.

We have promptly taken down the painting and want to assure you that Art Play remains impartial to any political movements. We value your feedback and are working to prevent such incidents in the future.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we appreciate your understanding.

Nishanthan Venkatesan Feb 2024


This was a surprise for my partner for her birthday and both her and I enjoyed this class very much. Our instructor Sam was one of the best teachers I've had and his passion and an enthusiasm for the craft really came through during the class. I would 100% recommend this class to anyone.

Isabel Moretti Feb 2024


Sam was a truly amazing teacher
He is super patient and friendly, and will explain everything and help you make a beautiful ring with a smile on his face the whole time.
The venue is also great - paintings everywhere and all sorts of people doing all sorts of crafts.
During your break you will be able to pick up a drink (I got a hot tea for only £2 as I was doing dry January) and look around at what other groups are doing.

Absolutely worth the money

One tip: there were mostly couples who attended this class so keep that in mind if you plan on signing up!

Hannah Williams Feb 2024


Teacher Sam was great, happy with my final ring and had fun along the way

I took a class this week and it was good fun. It was a basic intro to acrylic painting class and the teacher was great. It was good value for money, and I got a really good taste of how to work with acrylic paint. I’d definitely recommend this class!

Chiara Attal Jan 2024


Great workshop, the teacher was very patient and explained everything well. The pieces came out very fun.

Veronica Beltrami Jan 2024


I attended a candle making session led by Sophie with a friend. I am normally really bad when it comes to any DIY activities so I was not too sure I was going to enjoy it 100% but the whole experience was great.
Sophie explained each step very clearly and recommended some combinations for essential oils as well.
Have already recommended the place to friends and colleagues and will be definitely back to try other activities

Krishan Selvamanoharan Jan 2024


Sophie was a brilliant teacher, very informative with a great personality! Would def recommend the class!

Anonymised ClassBento student Jan 2024


I attended the silver ring making class with my partner. We were provided with all the equipment to make custom rings. There was enough individual equipment so we didn't have to wait too long for other members of the group in order to progress with the task. The only equipment there was less of was the items that were more hazardous, and required one on one help from the instructor. The instructor was amazing, she was super personable, knowledgeable and helpful. We cut and sized our rings and designed them too. We took home the rings at the end of the class. The class is fantastic value for money and we will be back to ArtPlay for more classes and also will probably take some more classes with Denna too

Marc Ellis Jan 2024


Saturday night hang out for us both, 2 people new to teach other. why not paint and drink wine :) was good fun, just to express without concern for outcome was fun, many people there doing very nice things in 2 hours , I was more into throw it on, and see what develops for an initial idea it morphed and got distorted as it went aling, i can see it being addictive. might try no wine next time. nice to be in a group of people just playing, good atmosphere

Shantnu Jan 2024


Thank you so much for helping me run my birthday party so smoothly. I'm sorry I didn't manage to get the names of the staff, but all of them were so accommodating and helped us get started. I also really appreciate letting us cut the birthday cake in the venue. Overall great experience

Hand Building Pottery Class review by Clara Lafon - London

Mike Fox Jan 2024


We organised a pottery class for our work team social at Art Play London in Spitalfields Market, and it turned out to be a fantastic choice. Sorcha and Simon, our instructors for the day, exhibited remarkable patience in guiding our group of 30 through the intricacies of pottery making. Their expertise made the experience enjoyable for everyone involved.

What set this pottery class apart from typical corporate events was its refreshing and hands-on nature. It offered a welcome break from the usual routine, allowing us to unleash our creativity in a relaxed and supportive environment.

One aspect we particularly appreciated was the convenience of leaving our creations to dry at the classroom and picking them up later. This thoughtful touch made the entire process seamless and hassle-free.

Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend the pottery class at Art Play London to anyone looking for a memorable and enjoyable team-building activity.

It's nice and fun. I liked it. The only thing is that 2 hours isn't enough. I felt a little bit in a rush and stressed to paint with an instructor.

Definitely worth the money and is a unique experience

Myself and three others went to the air dry clay pottery class. It was a lovely experience. The person leading the class did an amazing job of guiding the class and walking around to give 1:1 help. I enjoyed having the freedom to make anything I wanted or the option of making a pot with guided steps.
