A taster afternoon is a great way to get a feel for working with clay on the wheel, a practice that is known as throwing. In these intimate classes (each participant with their own wheel), one of our seasoned tutors will take you through each of the processes that form the basis of throwing.

In this hands-on class, you will learn how to wedge (prepare the clay), centre (secure the clay on the wheel), and, of course, throw (pulling up the walls of the clay into a cylinder). You will throw multiple pots, and you can choose one at the end of the session for the studio to glaze and fire on your behalf. Glaze colour choice at our discretion and you will be contacted when your vessel is ready to collect within 2-4 weeks.

Whether you book for yourself or with a group of friends, this is a wonderfully social and spirited introduction to the joys of throwing.

We encourage initial one-on-one lessons as the best way for a novice to learn how to throw, and as an excellent way for experienced potters to develop their practice.

These sessions take place within Studio Pottery London classroom area or on one of our traditional Fitzwillaim wheels, a quiet space which will help you to keep focus and build confidence. Glazing and firing of vessels will come at a later stage of your practice.

If you would like to gift friends or family please book this course through the website and we can arrange a handwritten voucher to be sent.

These 4 week courses provide a grounding introduction for learning how to throw. Over the space of 4x 1.5 hour sessions, you will learn the five fundaments of this ancient art. Starting with wedging (which is the practice of evenly blending clay and removing air bubbles), you will then learn the essential technique of how to centre the clay on the wheel. Next comes the throwing, where you will learn how to pull up a cylinder. The last two stages are turning (where you trim your pot), and finally firing and glazing.

This introductory course equips you with a sturdy foundation from which to develop as a potter. You are advised to learn with one tutor. It is the perfect prequel to our ongoing classes. If you are a little apprehensive about starting your potting journey, then we heartily recommend our one-to-one tuition as an alternative first step.

Our ongoing classes are a wonderful environment to develop your practice under the auspices of one of our expert tutors, alongside a small group of other potters. These intimate 1.5 hour classes allow for focus without sacrificing the social side of potting. Community is at the heart of our vision at Studio Pottery.

We understand that busy lives can make regular commitments difficult to keep to, no matter how motivated you are. This is why we give you the opportunity to attend our ongoing classes on a flexible basis. When you buy one of our bundles (between 3 to 12 classes at a time), you have the option to choose the sessions that best suit you. Not only does this give you greater freedom, it allows you to experience more of our ever-growing community of potters.
