Looking for a pottery class in London for a special occasion? Or keen to take a pottery-making workshop that focuses exclusively on you? Come along and try your hand at wheel throwing with this private pottery workshop in Shoreditch.

This two-hour ceramics class is an ideal introduction to throwing on the wheel — perfect for complete beginners or those simply needing a refresher. If you're looking for romantic gift ideas for your favourite couple, if you want to do something special for a friend's intimate birthday celebration, or if you simply want the chance to work one-on-one with a pro pottery teacher to learn or refine some pottery throwing techniques, this London workshop is for you!

You'll learn from a skilled and friendly tutor, who will teach you the basics of throwing on the wheel, including wedging, centring and pulling up the walls to make basic forms, cylinders, bowls, cups or planters.

Don't worry if this is your first time getting behind the potter's wheel, your teacher will tailor your session to meet your needs, whether you're an absolute beginner or whether you have some experience already.

At the end of this pottery class, you'll have your own clay creation to keep, some cool new wheel throwing skills and a new (or refreshed) obsession with pottery making!

We enjoyed a great 2 hour taster session, learning lots and we were amazed that we both managed to make something. Malory was very patient, encouraging and knowledgeable, and made the session fun too.

Booked this class for myself and two friends and we all loved it! The studio was really cute and our teacher Akiko was super knowledgeable. Just received our finished pots back in the post as we don't live in London, I'm so happy with how they turned out :)

Fabulous pottery session with Mallory who was extremely knowledgeable, patient with my daughter’s and my efforts on the wheel. She had a first class technique and great teaching manor. The result some pots produced that really aren’t half bad for novices!
Moreover, given the COVID situation we were delighted to get this lesson in.
All very professional, friendly and well worth the trip to London for us.
Thank you.

An amazing first time experience!

Gabrielle is a brilliant teacher who made us feel at ease with her kind approach and very bubbly personality.
We had never taken a pottery class before and Gabrielle made the class fun, educational and very relaxing!
We're both looking forward to collecting our pottery and would love to return in the future :)

Julien Deslangles Oct 2021

Our teacher was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about her craft - she made for a wonderful learning and fun experience! From the easy-to-find and well-equipped workshop in central London to all the materials being provided, it was as easy as showing up, putting on an apron and starting to play with some clay! I would highly recommend this class - to beginners and more advanced folks alike!

Fantastic introduction to the world of pottery! Our instructor (Gabby) was extremely friendly and helped us navigate our first attempts at making bowls/plates/vases. I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to try something new. Thanks so much for such a fun morning session!

Gabrielle made this pottery class so fun! It was a birthday surprise from my partner who knows my live for pottery but he had not yet been introduced the the process. Gabrielle had to cater to two different abilities which she did wonderfully. She provided a good refresher into pottery making with easy to understand explanations that would be clear for a beginner as well. I would highly recommend this class as a fun and relaxing way to enjoy pottery making and for the best session for beginners as well.
