If you want to start out your clay journey immediately, this intensive full-day London pottery workshop is for you. Try wheel throwing, coil and slab hand building, slip casting and decorating all in one class! You'll create some beautiful handmade ceramics to take home.

At this full-day workshop, you will learn everything offered through this teacher's 6-week course. It's a compact way to gain a wealth of pottery skills in a single day experience.

This ceramics workshop will give you the opportunity to learn a variety of pottery-making techniques, allowing you to develop your skills in hand-building with clay and decorating.

During your pottery class, you'll cover:

I've spent a wonderful day with the help of Stephanie and Melissa teaching the class about ceramics.
The venue was really nice, with a personal workstation for each attendee, the material provided was more than enough to experiment with all the different techniques.
I was able to make a small tray, 2 cerral bowls, 2 small cups and a mug. It's definitely a nice way to spend a Sunday and learn new skills, 100% recommended!

I bought this as a gift for my mum and she loved it! Both Stephanie and Melissa were incredibly attentive and knowledgeable about their subject; the workshop was very well organised. They guided us through making a range of different ceramic products and taught us a range of techniques, and we were given lots of opportunities to learn and ask questions and space to make mistakes. Would definitely recommend this workshop!

A very enjoyable and productive day - we learned 4 different processes and made 6 pieces, which I can’t wait to collect, after firing. Stephanie was a great instructor - thoroughly recommend this full-day course.

Stephanie was incredible and the session was dreamy. We learned a great deal and would feel a lot more confident about everything ceramics now. It was a birthday gift for a friend and he absolutely loved it.
