6 hours Class size 2 to 8     label £260

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:

  • Coil hand building.
  • Slab hand building.
  • Throwing on the wheel.
  • Decorating with coloured clay slip.
  • An introduction to slip casting in plaster moulds.

You are encouraged to come to this workshop with ideas and small projects you would like to develop throughout your session. Alternatively, your teacher can make suggestions for you! Your tutor will guide and support you with demonstrations of each technique and one-to-one guidance throughout your class.

By the end of your pottery class, you will have a beautiful collection of ceramics that your teacher will fire and (transparent) glaze for you. This takes 3-4 weeks. After this, your items will be ready to collect from your teachers' studio or they can deliver them (UK only) to you at an added cost.

Bring your ideas and your clay-based enthusiasm and get ready to make some pottery!

Note: Our rescheduling policy allows you to change dates and times 7 days prior to the class. If given 6 days or less notice due to illness of any kind, or for any other reason, we cannot reschedule or refund. There are no exceptions to this, so please do not ask or pressurise our staff.
Our tickets are non-nominative, meaning you can give your ticket to a friend or family member if you choose to! We have a strict no refunds policy, due to our business being tiny! We hope you understand.

This year the studio was chosen for sponsorship by prominent brands IKEA and H&M, as part of Atelier 100—a program that champions London's most exciting creatives.

Stephanie's approach to ceramics is driven by playful experimentation, a philosophy that has significantly influenced her collaborations and projects. Her renown within the arts and ceramics industry stems from her unique understanding of the medium.

She has undertaken projects in collaboration with distinguished artists and renown institutions such as the Whitechapel Gallery, Ace Hotel, Bankside Hotel, and The Shard, to name just a few.

The design team at the studio takes a distinctive approach to ceramics, dedicated to exploring the limitless possibilities of clay. Each piece produced at Maison S. Sommet is an embodiment of the new-age ceramics, embracing imperfections, and eschewing traditional mass-produced flawlessness.

Stephanie's work is deeply rooted in her love for the material and the creative process, consistently pushing the boundaries of ceramics.
