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)
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 in demand and we have a waiting list. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Covid-19 safety measures: We have made a number of changes to the studios to ensure the safety of all users. These include a full redesign of the studios, increasing ventilation, ensuring face coverings are worn in the studios at all times, spacing out equipment to ensure social distancing is maintained, putting in screens where needed, reducing the numbers of makers in the studios (both members and those on classes), installing hand sanitising dispensers, conducting regular risk assessments, introducing new cleaning / clay reclaim systems and we encourage everyone to wash their hands regularly . 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. More info
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 6:45pm-9:45pm. 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.
