Wheel Throwing Class for Two

Enjoy an intimate pottery making experience at this London wheel throwing workshop.



2 hours Class size 2     label £80

Try your hand at wheel throwing with someone close to you and enjoy an intimate pottery making experience in London with this ceramics workshop. You and your pottery making partner will finish up your class with two ceramic pieces each to take home.

A truly immersive private pottery experience, bring along a family member, partner or friend and learn to make pottery as a duo. As a pair, you will have exclusive use of the studio and you'll receive personal tuition from your teacher to help you make something wonderful. Try this pottery class as an anniversary gift for your loved one, for a special intimate birthday party idea or as a fun bonding experience with a family member or friend.

Hosted by an experienced teacher at a creative pottery studio, you and your pottery partner will be shown how to wedge your clay in preparation for throwing on the wheel. You will then be guided through the process of centring, opening and pulling up the walls of your pot.

At the end of the session you will each have two lovely pots which will be trimmed on the wheel for you, at the leather hard stage, and then fired and glazed in our studio white. Your pots will be ready for collection around three weeks after your pottery making class.


What you'll get
Each person will make two lovely pots each to keep.
 
What to bring
Please bring an apron as working with clay can be messy.

Your teacher

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.
