Beginners taster course

These courses run in 4 week blocks of 3 hour sessions. cost £140

For beginners. These classes will provide an insight into the possibilities of working with clay. Weeks 1-3 you will be introduced to different techniques such as hand building, throwing and decorating through demonstrations and plenty of hands on exercises. Week 4 you will be taken through the glazing process and glaze the work you have made. These sessions will be held in the class area of The Kiln Rooms where we like to create a comfortable, fun environment for everyone to enjoy. No need to bring anything with you as we’ll provide all materials, tools, aprons and equipment needed. Courses are usually held on Friday evenings (6pm-9pm) or Sunday mornings (10am-1pm) however due to Covid-19 the schedule may change over the coming months. These are all held in our Peckham Levels studio.

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. In the event of another lockdown we would pause the course and offer either rescheduled classes when we reopen, alternative studio access or a refund of the classes missed.

Demand for taster courses are high. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please email: taster.classes@thekilnrooms.com

Materials are included in the cost of the course, meaning no additional costs to fire & glaze your work (usually 3-4 pieces).

Please make sure that you can attend as many of the classes over a 4 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.
