Beginners/intermediate courses 

People of all abilities are welcome to join. Although these courses are 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 £320, 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 a waiting list for evening courses but often have spaces available on weekday morning courses. Everyone enrolled in a 12 week course can book onto our ‘drop-in’ sessions. This provides you with additional studio time. More info here.

Here’s a link to upcoming available courses

Evening courses are in demand and we have a waiting list. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please email: courses@thekilnrooms.com

Courses take place in one of our 3 studios Peckham Levels / Copeland Park / Bellenden Road this will be confirmed when booking. Morning courses take place 10am-1pm and evening courses are either 6pm-9pm, 6:30pm-9:30pm, 6:45pm-9:45pm 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.
