Beginners one-off taster sessions

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.

Covid-19: 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.
