Beginners/intermediate courses 

Covid-19: We will begin to host a limited number of courses from mid-July. We will update those on current courses and those who need to collect work via email and keep this page updated.

People of all abilities are welcome to join, though this class is aimed at developing beginner’s skills, we will tailor to everyone’s capabilities. These sessions are held in the class area of The Kiln Rooms, where we like to create a comfortable, fun environment. Over the first 4-5 weeks everyone covers basic techniques such as throwing on the wheel, hand building, mould work, decorating and glazing. After this you are encouraged to develop your own projects and ideas with the support of the teacher and others on the course. The cost of a 12 week course is £290, which doesn’t include the cost of materials, which is £5 per 1kg of fired pot (e.g. a teacup is around £1) (T&Cs)

We have made a number of Health & Safety changes to the studio including a full redesign, adding screens and putting into place new safety procedures. To get an idea of what steps users will need to take when coming for a class please watch this short H&S video

Everyone enrolled in a 12 week course has access to our ‘drop-in’ sessions. This provides you with additional studio time without the need to book or pay in advance. More info here.

Evening courses are sold out at present and demand is high. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please email: courses@thekilnrooms.com

Courses take place either at our Bellenden Road, or Peckham Levels studios. This will be confirmed when booking. Morning courses take place 10am-1pm and evening courses are either 6pm-9pm, 6:30pm-9:30pm or 7pm-10pm. Monday classes do go ahead on Bank holidays.

Please make sure that you can attend as many of the classes over a 12 week course as possible. In the event of non-attendance or arriving late to classes it is not possible to provide alternative studio time, or for a class to be rescheduled as our courses sell out. Unfortunately we do not sell vouchers for these courses.
