If you’re new in town and looking to branch out and meet new people, a beginner wheel throwing course could be just what you’ve been searching for! London is such a big city, so naturally it can be difficult to find your niche and make like-minded pals, but pottery making offers an accessible and fun way to break the ice and discover a potential new hobby too. With the help of your friendly pottery teacher and fellow clay lovers in the class, you could soon have a whole new social circle!

You might just need some time to adjust to life in London – after all, there’s probably going to be a lot more noise and bustle than what you’re used to back home. But when you do find yourself ready for some local London activities, give pottery wheel classes a try – without doubt, you won’t regret it. You can go solo and make friends in your class or bring along a partner or pal – whatever works best for you!

Stuck in a work, eat, sleep routine? Switch things up with a clay-date

Between commuting, cooking and getting your much-needed eight hours in, it can feel like there’s not much time left for living. We’ve all been there – you’re exhausted from work, so you switch on the telly. But it doesn’t exactly leave you feeling like you’ve made the most out of your evening! So, why not switch up your routine this week and treat yourself to a date with clay?

Pottery wheel classes offer a fun alternative evening or weekend London activity for when you’re in need of venturing out (to somewhere that isn’t the office or the Pret a Manger down the road). 

Once you’re there, you’ll be transported to the creative world of pottery making, where you’ll be able to enjoy the refreshing experience of trying something new and exploring your artistic side. Soon, you’ll become lost in this enchanting DIY craft and forget all about your hectic repetitive routine! 

Need a quiet space to reflect? Wheel throwing will tune out the noise

Whether you’re based in Shoreditch, Soho or Streatham, it can feel like everyone around you is busy bustling around from one place to the next, and sometimes, you just need a quiet place to slow down and reflect. So, if you’ve been searching for relaxing things to do in London, a local pottery studio could be the perfect place for you.

After your friendly teacher explains each step to making your ceramic creation, you’ll be free to switch off and tune into some meditative wheel throwing. As your hands slowly help the moist and malleable clay to take shape, you’re sure to feel yourself unwind from the stress of the day. 

Allow yourself to sink your fingers into your creation and soak up the feeling of expressing your creativity, completely unhurried. We promise you’ll leave the studio feeling lighter and brighter than when you came in! When it comes to finding soothing activities, don’t delay in booking yourself a space on one of our many pottery wheel classes in London. 

Fancy taking advantage of city life? Explore your arts community through pottery making

One of the best things about living in a big city like London is that there’s so much going on – especially in the arts community. There are so many artists, makers and creators on every corner. So, if you’re looking for a way to explore your local creative scene and support independent businesses, a pottery course like wheel throwing could be the perfect way to do just that! 

London happens to be home to many pottery courses as well as one-off wheel throwing workshops, so it would be a shame not to take advantage! You’ll learn essential techniques, tips and tricks from top ceramic artists and surround yourself with other like-minded creative folks, all whilst learning what life is like in a busy London pottery studio. Enjoy the social atmosphere and be inspired by the artistic ceramic creations of your talented teachers and fellow classmates.
