Treat your office to something utterly different, a little bit messy, and deeply therapeutic. Swap your suits for overalls and get on a wheel for a thoroughly unusual day. Based at our studio in SW1.

Gregory Tingay and the studio’s Resident Potter ‘The centering of clay on the wheel acts as a metaphor for the centrality of learnt skill and craft in this ancient art form, as well as the spiritual and psychological centring which gives pottery its therapeutic dimension.’ Gregory has trained under some of the most distinguished potters of the 20th century. At Buckfast Abbey, he was apprenticed to Mary Boys-Adams (nee Gibson Horrocks), a pupil of Bernard Leach.

Manuela Wirth, Co-president, Hauser & Wirth Art Gallery  ‘It has been a great day with Lucy and Gregory. I felt very comfortable and got exactly what I hoped to learn during the day.’

Studio Pottery London is a light-filled and spacious workshop for all who are attracted to making with clay, from absolute beginners to more experienced potters. We are uniquely located in central London in the heart of Victoria. A place of calm and community, our carefully curated space provides a perfect environment for city-dwellers to come together to learn and create.

Our focus is throwing – working with clay on the wheel.

This traditional craft provides a counterbalance to the hyperactive, mechanised, and technologically saturated metropolis. The hands-on practice of throwing opens dormant creativity and encourages therapeutic transformation.

Engaging with clay, the practitioner slows down, assimilating technique and mastering knowledge through careful repetition. It is a holistic, gradual and joyous experience, connecting the potter to a living history of human making.

Edmund de Waal also spoke of the studio as ‘a place of community.’ Here at Studio Pottery London we provide a space for students on the wheel to benefit from our experienced teachers in deliberately small groups. We will foster one-on-one learning and development through regular classes, occasional workshops, masterclasses and corporate offsites.
