Perfect for those looking for fun things to do in London, this all-rounder pottery class is a great way to kick back, relax and have a play with clay!

You'll gain practical skills as you're introduced to simple yet rewarding pottery making techniques from pinching and coiling to wheel throwing — so, there's no need to bring along bags of experience, just come as you are and eager to learn.

Such a brilliant class, we are all going to book on for a second session of just using the pottery wheel next time. Teacher, location and materials all excellent!

I’ve already been asked by 6 people about the lesson and sent them Sampadas way ☺️

Had a lovely class with Sampatha with me and my 3 other friends. She's patient attentive, good class size. When booking pottery it's important to understand whether throwing (the wheel thing is included) is included which was in the class (rather than some classes we looked at online was just moulding clay). We also got to mould clay too which was a diff technique entirely. We were allowed to bring our own drinks and snacks, and the pottery class studio was gorgeous! Highly recommend

The class was really fun and informative. The teacher explained concepts clearly and demonstrated the techniques along the way. The studio was a little hard to find but we managed! Would definitely recommend!

Michal Stachowicz Mar 2022

The class was amazing and so relaxed. The venue was beautiful and encouraged creativity and fun. Will definitely be coming back :)

Getting to keep your pieces is the perfect souvenir.

Charlotte Land Mar 2022

Both Sabanar and Samanthi were great tutors. The glass was very relaxed and fun. We were given total freedom to make whatever we wanted to and we’re guided as much or little as we asked for or needed (if the clay or our faces looked like it needed urgent help!). I’d really like to book another course and go with friends and family again! Thank you!

Yeshtha Crustna Feb 2022

Really good class for intro to pottery, every part was explained very well and made it so easy to understand the process and different techniques during both hand building as well as wheel throwing.
She was very thorough and helpful throughout, guiding us to make the best out of our clay. Very happy with the class and will hopefully be back for a wheel throwing class. :D

Excellent tuition. Great studio, spacious and light. I really enjoyed using the pottery wheel and had fun being creative with clay. Thank you x

Aaron Infante Feb 2022

Teacher was very kind and accommodating, which was especially needed as we had zero experience on pottery. the studio was clean, all materials were provided and overall it was a great experience learning from there as she was very friendly and created a comfortable atmosphere.

Alessia Caramello Feb 2022

The class was really great and we managed to produce quite a few nice pieces. The teacher provided lot of background on how to work with clay, all the necessary tools and plenty of clay to play with. She also prepared a little snack and wine for us to munch on during the class. The studio had a really nice atmosphere, great view on the canal with lot of natural light coming in which helps relaxing. We had plenty of time to model the clay by hand, but I would have maybe spent more on the throwing wheel.

Alia Sheikh Nov 2021

A great introduction to pottery where you get stuck in quickly. Sampada was super friendly and always on hand to assist. Lovely light filled studio with all the equipment you need. Note - I thought I was booking a private class for 2 as the class capacity (when booking) stated 1-2 people but there were 5 others when we turned up, so just double check if wanting private classes. Was great anyway and would definitely recommend.
