Extremely well run and enjoyable taster class. We fit so much into just 2 hours and left us with such positive view of learning pottery, my mum is considering joining one of their courses.
It was friendly and well resourced and great vibes!

We had a lot of fun learning how to make pierces of pottery! I would have love to stay for longer to have the time to add more detail.

Pottery class review by Camilla Rega - London

Giorgia Vaccaro Nov 2023

Fun and cool experience, just a bit too rushed! It would’ve been ideal to have 30-60 min more to complete and decorate everything with relax.

Hayden Nov 2023

The venue is not close to an underground station but reachable by bus from a nearby station. Full instructions are sent, but the studio itself was great, plenty of space for group of 10.

The instructor was fantastic, we learnt a few techniques and she even helped guide us but also let us do our own thing. We built our own item but also had an opportunity to use the wheel and make small items to learn the technique.

There was even an opportunity to paint and decorate (included in the cost). The cost of the materials, post production of your creation is all included in the cost.

You get to keep your creation at the end but there is an additional cost if you want to keep the smaller items (£5 each). There is also a delivery charge if you don't want to collect in person (£15 delivery for two people - 4items).

If this is your first time learning, I highly recommend this class

Daniel Romberg Oct 2023

Alex was great and did an amazing job guiding the class. Overall we loved it and are keen to come back. Couple of things that would have made it even better would be to offer people more time to paint at the end cuz it felt a bit rushed and maybe show the different techniques at the start of the class so that you could choose what to focus on. But still 10-10. All the best!

Alina Lapteanu Oct 2023

The instructors were funny and engaging. The experience on the whole was very fun and they were always on hand to help us out and show us where we were going wrong. You could make as much as you could in two hours. It was lots of fun and an amazing birthday present. Highly recommend.

Fantastic class! My brother and I had a great time. The instructor was fantastic - funny, attentive and made the experience very enjoyable. Only wish we had longer to make our pieces! Excited to see how they turn out.

Cristiana Ronci Sep 2023

The teacher was fantastic! Super clear with her instructions, friendly and very patient. She also has beautiful eyes!
The venue was inspiring, spacious and light.
The. materials provided were perfect for me! It was great to have the sausages already made.
My experience was very good value, I have learnt a lot in only 2.5 hours. I made a cute cup using the coiling method and a couple of pots with the wheel.
I really enjoyed the whole experience, from the minute I walked into the studio to the moment I left.
The only shame is the studio is too far away from where I live and I cannot be there on a weekly basis
Thank you so much

There’s a first time for everything, and I’ll definitely do this again and obviously recommend. Many thanks to my instructor on the day Lennie, who was patient with me and my partner making it a therapeutic experience.

We went to the session Sat 2nd September. The teacher was absolutely great, especially as we took our 8 year old with us. She was hospitable, we learnt loads about pottery on a not too overwhelming level. She made everything look so easy. There were 7 of us in the session and it was great to have a go on the wheel but for us, making the pottery from scratch learning techniques and actually making a little masterpiece each was well worth the lesson. It was very relaxing and mindful, zen and funny! Look forward to collecting our final pieces!

Sophia Quazi Sep 2023

Great class! Had a wonderful time trying something new :) would do again. Thank you very much

Heather Aug 2023

Lennie was a great teacher, chilled and friendly - really great at helping when our throwing went wrong. Lovely class that gives a bit of time to try the different techniques, and then you can take your creations home!

Joy Whittaker Aug 2023

Brilliant experience, it was fun and the group were great.
Well worth the money.
Teachers were also great!

Charutha Joy Aug 2023

Maria Aug 2023

The class was so much fun & really met all of my expectations. I would definitely be coming back!

Rhea Wakim Aug 2023

The class was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was well worth the money. Laura was our instructor - she gave clear instructions and was so lovely to us! You get to learn how to make things using two methods, the coiling method (my friends and I made mugs!) and the throwing method. It was so fun and therapeutic. Would 100% recommend and do again! Many thanks to the studio :) We’re still waiting for our pieces to be done, so no photos in the review, but the whole experience was great.

Nicola Morgan Aug 2023

Great teacher, super hands on! Helped us set realistic expectations for what we could achieve and explained everything really thoroughly. I was surprised at what I was able to acheive!

I bought tickets to this class as a gift to my girlfriend and I have to say it delivered The teacher, Alex, was excellent at demonstrating the techniques and created a lovely atmosphere in the class. You get to experiment with two techniques (coils and throwing I think) and also get to keep some of the things you make! All round, I would highly recommend!

Aisha Rehman Jul 2023

We absolutely loved this session! Such a fun workshop, and so therapeutic to make things from clay. Alex and Margot were great. We were given this class as a gift and would highly recommend to anyone! Lots of fun.

Timur D’Silva Jul 2023

We both had an incredible time. Alex and Margot were so welcoming, wring and patient with us. They took the time to check in with everyone multiple times and it really made a difference. I had so much fun on the wheel and would love to be able to spend more time on that skill. Overall a brilliant experience we’d love to visit again

Karishma Das Jul 2023

Amazing experience, it was an informative session , the teachers were all incredible - will visit again.

Aljawhara Hassan Jul 2023

I really enjoyed the class. We were able to try 2 different techniques (coiling and throwing I believe is what they were called). Elena was my teacher for this class and she was great at explaining what we needed to do. They made sure to go around and check on how we were doing and help/ answer any questions. I really enjoyed the experience.

Natasha Zack Jul 2023

I really liked the class!
The teacher was really approachable and explained things clearly.
I think the only way to make it better would be to focus on one type of pottery instead of 2. It felt too much to do throwing on the wheel as well as laying the tubes clay type of pottery.
Other than that it was a very enjoyable class.

Yuna Kang Jul 2023

We really enjoyed the class. Would recommend it! :)) We want to go back to the class again.

A master class was great and our teacher was super nice. I suggest everyone to think before what you want to create and take home as basically you won't have time to think during the event itself. You can take one piece for free, but create three and £5 extra for each.

Aaliyah Walters Jul 2023

Alex was great! The session was well resourced and prepared for us and even though I thought there were quite a lot of us in the class, Alex was really attentive, helpful & clear with her instructions. She created a really nice atmosphere for us to learn in. I loved it and would cone back again!

VERY VERY COOL! Special thanks to Elena! She was very attentive, helped everyone and everyone if there were mistakes) and they happened! Very nice environment and all the necessary tools were at hand! I recommend to everyoneI made my friend a birthday present by buying 2 tickets for the master class!

Ali Halavurt Jun 2023

Great location with easy access and no issues with parking. Leni was superb. Really friendly, and a great teacher covering all of the important points but not overloading. Perfect for a beginner class. All the materials were provided and easy to use. A great selection of colours to paint with. Definitely worth the price and would go again or try the next level up. Learned coiling and spinning, which was great fun. Practising on the wheel was the best.

Nadeem Jan May 2023

Teacher was great; fun taster class. Will deffo do again. She was very helpful and even said my bad work was good. So that was awesome

Really great staff, friendly, helpful and willing to assist. The venue and workshop was cute, had everything we needed. Learnt a lot about the process and we're given the opportunity to put that into action too which was both fun and rewarding. Would recommend this highly.

Chioma Ezeh May 2023

Amazing class! The staff were so friendly and patient and helpful. Will definitely be back for another one

Sarah-Jane Taieb May 2023

Loved the experience! Our teacher on the day (Laura) was great: friendly, experienced and explained things very clearly. The group was the perfect size to allow enough space at work stations and to enable people to have some one-on-one time with Laura.

As for the class itself, it was well structured for a taster:
- it began with a demonstration on coiling. We were then able to go away and mould our clay into our desired shape with help along the way.
- we were then given a demonstration on throwing. Once that was done, Laura went to each table for a more personal and hands-on approach at throwing (which was welcomed as it is not as easy as it looks).
We had two attempts at throwing and was able to use the remaining time to finish off our hand modelled pieces.

Some reviews mentioned that there was not enough time but I think it depends on the shape and size of your piece. It is a taster on two different techniques after all so perfection should not be expected. Everyone in my party was happy with the allocated time and would highly recommend for an introduction into coiling and throwing.

Rachel Wong May 2023

My product came back broken
It was delivered in a decent enough packaging with layers of wrappings. But the handle is broken Looking at its “wound” site it looks quite obvious it’s broken after being baked (not the smooth texture as like all other parts of the product), does not look like a problem in the production process.
Please look into this issue.

Absolutely disappointed

Teacher's response

Hi Rachel,
we are sorry to hear your disappointment. We are taking your feedback very seriously. During the firing process, the bottom part of your handle uncurled and detached from the pot, creating a very sharp point, the safest solution was to sand it back. We should have let you know but have missed communicating this to you. We have now emailed you to make it up to and meet your expectations internally, we still hope you enjoyed the workshop experience .
Kind Regards,
Stephanie and The Ceramicists Team.

Sumeet Bains May 2023

Honestly the teachers were both amazing, was so much fun and would strongly recommend! Attentive, authentic and friendly.

Chawntell Kulkarni May 2023

The teacher was very friendly, explained everything clearly and also provided help whenever needed. The class was intimate and the space was well organised. Got to make three different pieces and paint them with a variety of colours. Was a very relaxing and creative experience! Would book again.

Loved the class. Laura was such a great teacher and very encouraging. Gave us our full attention. Although the warehouse was hard to get to due to limited transport links. Would definitely recommend as you learn lots in a place of 2 hours

Yannis Rossonis May 2023

Great teacher!
We had a fun time playing with clay.
Would recommend it as a weekend activity.

Very helpful instructions, the class was really informative and fun I really enjoyed my experience as it was my first time!

James Bolland Apr 2023

Fantastic intro class teaching two techniques: coiling and throwing. We were completely new to both, but ended the day with three pieces of art created! Laura was a great teacher, very friendly and helpful with thorough demonstrations. Highly recommend!

Juliet Kernohan Apr 2023

This taster class was great! The teachers, Lenny and Fran were very relaxed and patient with a good balance of demonstration and hands on time for you to get stuck in! The space was lovely. I also lived that you got to try the pottery wheel as well as coiling, this was a big attraction of the class for us as not something that many taster sessions offer. I would highly recommend

Krystyna Kobiak Apr 2023

Teacher and class were great fun. A little far out, but got there in the end despite building works all around. Enjoyed the wheel turning think I need a bit more practice. Thank you

Recommend it too anyone, the teacher Alex was great.

Francesca Kitchener Apr 2023

Loved this class! Was very fun and I learnt a lot.
Lennie was a great teacher.
It was slightly rushed but it is only a taster session! It also would have been good to keep at least one of the clay products that we made on the potters wheel for free (as it was included in the class to make one).

Joao Inacio Apr 2023

Amazing experience with really lovely teachers. Great explanations of everything, would definitely recommend and do it again

Brian Balchin Apr 2023

Lennie was funktastic! Thank you so much! Super helpful and entertaining. Look forward to how our pieces turn out!

Shannon Butler Apr 2023

Such a great class, the teachers were supportive and helpful and gave lots of examples to inspire our work :)

Got to take home a coiled piece included in with the ticket cost and a piece thrown on the pottery wheel for only £5 extra.

Loved it!

Sam Norwood Mar 2023

Absolutely fantastic experience with brilliant supportive teachers in an exciting environment. Would recommend highly to anyone.

Helen Mar 2023

Hugely enjoyable afternoon. Helpful anf friendly teachers who taught us how to hand- build from coils and how to use the wheel. Demonstrated to the class then came round and offered advice and assistance as went along. We also got the chance to decorate a piece and for an extra fee get them delivered to our home once dried and fired. Would really recommend to anyone who enjoys a bit of creativity.

Susan Ying Mar 2023

Teachers were charismatic and engaging, great demonstrations and tips. Felt a little bit rushed but at the same time got to try both coiling and wheel throwing in 2 hours, which was a pretty good deal price-wise.

Highly recommend for friends, couples or anyone who wants to create a great memory and a mug or bowl. The two ladies were great hosts that created a fun atmosphere and ensured if we needed any help they were there!

We unfortunately were late to the session due to train strikes and they accommodated us very well and even let us stay a bit longer so we can paint our creation ! :)

Me and my boyfriend had the best time here. The class was so much fun and the instructor (Lennie - not sure of spelling) was excellent! She was great at teaching us all the techniques and then leaving us to practice! The two hours went by so fast!

All the equipments and materials was set out ready which made it so much easier to get to the fun part !

Thanks you for a great experience

Tom Sutcliffe Feb 2023

Really fun and rewarding introduction to ceramics - Will definitely be wanting to come back and try a longer course because of it. Melissa was a great teacher!

James Ganendra Feb 2023

First time attending a ceramics taster session in London - seemed the best value one out of all others we came across. Class size wasn't too big so instructor had time to go around, give advice when needed, and the rest of the time you could be immersed into making. Studio space was quite small (so sometimes was a little snug when moving around) but everyone had own space and wheel etc. Really enjoyed whole session :)

Silvia Freire Feb 2023

The class was thought by Melissa. It was the first time I did ceramics but I never felt overwhelmed as she explained everything very well and helped me individually when I needed. She was also very friendly and welcoming. I had a great time and recommended to anyone who wants to try something different.

Giovanna D’Angelo Feb 2023

Fantastic experience! Great class and teacherWe learned a lot and it was really good fun. The atmosphere was friendly and inspiring. I would definitely recommend it and I wish I lived nearer to the location so I could take more classes! Class mates were great too

The session was fantastic! It was exactly what I had hoped. We did cooking to make mugs and also wheel throwing for smaller pieces. And managed to have some time to decorate too. Lenny and Alex were great!

The teacher was absolutely amazing! Explained everything clearly in a very calm and easy to follow way.
The venue was good and it was a good atmosphere in the class.
Only issue we found is the location of the venue.
Other than that, it all was great Would love to give it a go again!

Laura Turner Nov 2022

Really great experience at The Ceramicist doing the taster class - Millie was very informative and patient, and she spent a lot of time one-to-one with everyone which was brilliant (and necessary - it’s harder than it looks!). Highly recommend, really fun.

Lenny was a great teacher and made the class fun. She explained the process of coiling and throwing very well, and as a complete beginner I managed to make three pieces in the 2 hour class. The workshop is well equipped, with everything you need to learn the basics of ceramics.

Sara Abreu Sep 2022

We did this class for a hens party and it was a big hit. Our teacher Lenny was lovely, super knowledgeable and very helpful in bringing everyone’s vision for their pieces to life (regardless of actual skill on our part).

Everyone had a great time (including the mums) and many people said that they’d like another go to

This is the second year my son has attended the taster class. Autistic with some challenging behaviour, he was able to complete three pieces of work using the wheel He loved it.
The tutor was enclusive and encouraging, my son was able to work at his own pace.

Thanjena Begum Jul 2022

This was a fun experience as I was completely new to Pottery. The teacher was very informative and was happy to help with anything we had trouble with. A good amount of clay was provided and paints were given to decorate. Compared to other Pottery classes, this one seems to be really good value for money. You also get to take 2 pieces home with you for free.

Ceramics Class: Taster review by Thanjena Begum - London

Michal Jezierski Jul 2022

I'd definitely recommend.
All the materials provided. Great tuition, with enough information to get started but not overloading. The entire experience is hands on, first hand forming then on wheel.
That was my first take on pottery and I want more.

Taybah Jul 2022

Thoroughly enjoyed this class, great to experience both coiling and throwing with very helpful instructors =)

Linda Leimkohl Jul 2022

The class was great fun, everything was very well explained and I can’t wait to receive my new masterpieces! :) Would definitely recommend!

Lidia Blazquez Jun 2022

The class was great! We had a really good time and loved the experience. The teacher, Elena/Lenny, was lovely, really nice and attentive (thank you! you made the experience perfect)
Everything was ready when we came and we went straight to work with our hands. You can really discover who has hidden artistic talents in your group! We highly recommend it!

Fred Richardson Jun 2022

Great experience and a fun date idea, Stephanie was a good teachet and always on hand.

Chrisi Baetz Jun 2022

2 ClassBento workshops attended • 2 reviews

The class was good but we had to stop with the coil making to then start on the wheel. Once done we could return to the coil making whilst the other half of the class attempted the wheel. It felt interrupted and we didn't have much time to complete out art work. It felt very much pressured.
I heard good feedback from this class especially the female instructor. We had a male teacher. He didn't really explain much in detail which was a shame. Overall, I'm feeling very mixed about this class

Geraldine Murer May 2022

Everything was great, we loved the experience ! Teachers were very patient and helpful. Highly recommend

Nitin Mathur May 2022

A very enjoyable session - well managed and we got to make 2 items!
The teachers Lenny and Fran were amazing - very calm, patient and helpful!

Sophie Hanson May 2022

Brilliant. A rare chance to try a new skill and an introduction to two different techniques, I think this class was exceptional value for money. I took my friend for her birthday and we had a great time - my only regret is not having more time! I'd advise to come with an idea in your head of what you might want to make and the design (you get to colour them).

Lartey Laryea May 2022

It was an Excellent taster class. Both were really helpful and amazing teachers. Would definitely recommend.

Maya Biskupska May 2022

Really fun intro into pottery. Awesome that you get 2 attempts at wheel throwing, and that you get to keep one of them along with your hand coiled piece. A really peaceful setting and everything was properly explained. My only feedback was I wish the class was just ever so slightly longer as decorating/painting at the end felt very rushed. Thank you

Tintin Lam May 2022

Really fun! The teachers were very helpful, attentive and helpful. Would recommend this to any beginner!

Aisha Saeed May 2022

First experience of pottery. A great teacher. Explained things really well and was happy to help out. Could have spent all day there but defo a great experience for a taster.

Katherine Grayson May 2022

Amazing class! I booked this for my sister's hen do and it was such great activity. Our teacher Lenny was fantastic, super patient with us and very flexible. We were all amazed that we managed to come away with a couple of really cool pieces that we had made. Everyone had their own wheel and we learnt really cool techniques, how to coil and throw. I would highly recommend and also want to thank Stephanie and Lenny for being so accommodating and giving us a great experience.

Pottery class review by Asia Begum - London

Mina Ha Apr 2022

I enjoyed my first pottery class in my life. Teacher was kind and very engaging. Also a teacher assistant was helpful.
The teacher I had was different from the picture on the website. I definitely want to recommend and go back for other lessons. Time was a bit tight so it would be good to think about what you want to make beforehand.

Carmen Shek Apr 2022

This was a Christmas gift from my partner and only now have we had the time to do the class.

It’s been something I wanted to do for a while, so it was super fun to get our hands dirty for the day. We got to make 2 pieces within 2hrs. We got to learn coiling and throwing techniques.

There were two teachers on the day and both were helpful talking through the steps, and they would go around helping each person.

I thought throwing was quite exciting to learn - we get two goes, the one you like the most gets fired up.

Two hours wasn’t enough, I think an extra 30mins would be nice but I thoroughly enjoyed it all.

If they had a intermediate class available, I would consider joining again.

Cecilia Pares Apr 2022

I had a very nice time! Was able to create two pieces and meet nice people. I would definitely recommend it

Kate McCormack Mar 2022

I booked this class for me and my mum and it was so much fun. The teachers were so lovely and encouraging! I think it’s such good value for money too. Can’t wait to pick up our pieces

Ceramics Class: Taster review by Mattia Bassi - London

There were two teachers at this session and both took time to look and assist every student with both techniques we were using (coiling and throwing).
The materials, paints and other tools were all provided and I really enjoyed the process.

It was a very nice session, great support and easy going. Would come back anytime Thank you !

Helen Wicks Feb 2022

Really enjoyed the class Lenny was amazing very talented. She managed the required fast pace to fit everything in and still managed to gave everyone individual attention.

Anna Nesterenko Feb 2022

It was a wonderful experience, was really nice to try both hand building and the wheel. Would be nice to have it a bit longer, maybe 2.5 or 3h, so it won't be in a rush.

Ceramics Class: Taster review by Anna Nesterenko - London

Parker Mrozek Jan 2022

I really enjoyed the class! We received a quick intro on the coiling technique for our first project, then got to work. Shortly after we received a demo on the wheel, and proceeded to work on that piece as well. The time flew by and we were able to walk away with two pieces that are being sent to us.

Overall the class size was good, the teaching was awesome, and the playlist in the studio was also fantastic :)

Pottery class review by Parker Mrozek - London

A lovely venue with friendly, relaxed teachers. They were very happy to help and guide but also let us do what we want and enjoy the session. The whole experience was great!

Mike Gouldney Jan 2022

We had a fab time! The class was great value for time spent and was one of the only classes I could find where you get to throw on the wheel, hand coil AND paint on the same day. Lenny was very helpful and everyone else attending was lovely and supportive ☺️

Celia Marinaro Jan 2022

The teachers are really nice and so available. In two hours you have the time to learn, try and familiarize yourself with the clay. That was a lovely moment and I am already thinking of booking another class!

Yolanta Boti Jan 2022

Steph and her team were outstanding, I surprised my cousin with a class for her birthday, the venue had everything we needed, the staff were all so friendly. We did a mix of hand building and wheel throwing miniature pots for practice, Steph was so patient with us and let us take the time on our pieces. Overall the class was a lot of fun and very informative. Can't wait to go back!

Roz Kingham Nov 2021

Really well organised and we packed loads in to our two hours. Special thanks for so making my daughter feel so welcome as part of the class too

Theresa Pascual Nov 2021

The taster class is so perfect for beginners like me! Me and the boyfriend enjoyed it so much!
Their demonstrations were clear and easy to follow. They guide you throughout the class and will be there when you need help or when you fail miserably on the potter’s wheel
It’s definitely worth the money as you will be able to try out two different methods and you even get to take two of your creations home after a few weeks (they need to bake and glaze them)!
I can’t wait to go back again and maybe try out a full potter’s wheel session.

Pottery class review by Theresa Pascual - London

Geizalyn Mejala Nov 2021

Wish there was more time ☺️ Enjoyed it too much!⭐️ They are very hands on during the throw and teach good techniques too.

Loved the balance of coiling and throwing.

All round great session, super fun and would recommend!

Kristin Gabriel Nov 2021

While I enjoyed the lovely atmosphere in the sudio, the session was informational and hands on at the same time. Stéphanie and her assistant Lenny gave very good instructions to succeed and have nice results to take home. It is a wonderful and joyful experience to work with your hands, so very much recommended!
