Ever wanted to dip your toes into the world of clay? Then this London pottery class is the place to start! It's a great introduction in a small class that has plenty of teacher support. Learn how to use the pottery wheel and pick up some hand-building techniques too.
You will get your own dedicated pottery wheel to work on and learn all the basic techniques for crafting DIY pottery pieces. You will be shown how to centre your clay on the wheel and how to open your pot and pull up the walls.
For the hand-building section of this workshop, you will learn how to manipulate the clay using only your hands. This involves pinching, coiling and slab building to create clay items.
Dig your hands into the cooling clay and explore your creativity surrounded by your pals. If you're on the hunt for relaxing things to do in London with your loved ones or to meet new people, you'll love this pottery experience.
By the end of this pottery class, you can keep your best pot which will be fired twice and glazed for you in the pottery studio's white glaze. Finished creations will be ready for collection three weeks after the class. Please check the Sak Beh Website for your collection dates. Because we don’t send out emails, please remember to check the website for your collection date.
Happy Potting!

Sak Beh Studio Pottery was founded by Tessa Robinson, who lives and works in London. Her idea was to create a comfortable, homey place to work and be creative. Situated in a very busy and central location, just off Stoke Newington High Street, the studio is a drop of calm in a very fast moving world.
Tessa trained in Fine Art, specialising in sculpture (modelling in clay). On completion of a three year Post Graduate Course at the Royal Academy of Arts, Tessa set up a studio in Hackney. The transition from sculptor to potter came many years later whilst doing doctoral research in Maya archaeology at UCL. Inspired by Maya ceramic art, and in particular the pots which combined sculpted and painted imagery, Tessa moved from research back to making. After attending courses in pottery and taking up a membership at a London pottery studio, she set up Sak Beh Pottery and is now a full-time potter and maker.
Tessa's works are informed by both her Fine Art training and her research into Ancient Maya ceramic art. The phrase 'Sak Beh' can be found on Ancient Maya monuments where it refers to the Milky Way as an ancestral path or road as well as the physical roads which connect people to places. In keeping with its namesake, Sak Beh Pottery is envisaged as a place for community interaction within the context of a creative journey.
