Beginners one-off taster sessions

Covid-19: Unfortunately we will not be hosting these before July at the earliest. We will update those booked in and on the waiting list via email and keep this page updated.

These afternoon sessions are for complete beginners and provide an insight into the possibilities of working with clay. We will introduce people to throwing on a wheel and a range of hand building skills through demonstrations and plenty of hands on exercises. We then fire and glaze 3-4 pieces of work that you make, which can be collected 3-4 weeks later (it’s a lengthy firing process!). We will also walk you through other skills such as decorating, glazing and mould work, providing a good understanding of what goes on in a ceramics studio. Sessions are 4.5 hours long, cost £85 pp and includes all materials and firings, meaning that there are no additional costs. There are a maximum of 12 people in a class with 2 experienced teachers.

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. Once a session is booked if there were another lockdown we would rescheduled the session for when we reopened or provide a full refund.

Cost: £85.  Taking place on Sunday afternoons 2:30pm-7pm.  Location: Peckham Levels studio.

If you would like to be added to our waiting list for future taster sessions please email:

In the event of non-attendance or arriving late to the session it is not possible to provide alternative studio time, or for it to be rescheduled. From 9 days before the taster session we do not provide refunds. Please be aware that it may be difficult to work with clay with long nails, and finally if you have a disability please let us know before your first class so that we can best accommodate your needs. Unfortunately we do not sell gift vouchers.
