My friend booked a ceramics session for a group of us for her birthday. We made a pot and a trinket tray (nut bowl... whatever you want it to be!) Teacher was very friendly and I'm super happy with what we made in 2 hours. Lesson was easy to follow and stress-free. The venue was cosy and relaxing with a great playlist - I will book again.

We had a wonderful time at Cozy Pots! The class runs you through the skills required for hand-building whilst you create quirky, characterful pots. By the end you'll have at least two creations- whether a cup, vase, bowl or plant pot. Yen Yu is a great teacher and helps those present achieve their vision- and she took photos throughout, a nice reminder of the day. The class is held in an interesting building- filled with art and music. Would really recommend!

I learnt how to make pottery step by step which I decided to make a trophy. The teacher was very precise and informative on her teaching but at the same time let me do my own thing. The venue was nice and cosy and was very friendly so it felt like home which makes the class more relaxing and enjoyable.

Such a great class - the teacher is knowledgeable and helpful, the content and organisation of the class is very flexible, the results were very satisfying, all for a reasonable price. We learned two different hand building techniques on two types on clay and I was able to make three items, including one I painted. Highly recommended!

Such a wonderful workshop, we learned two techniques to shape pots on two different types of clay and we could also paint our creations. The teacher is great, she makes you feel at ease and is very helpful as well. I cannot wait to come get my pots. Highly recommended, I plan to take this class again very soon!

The teacher Yen was friendly and knowledgeable and helped us learn two techniques for making pottery. The studio was cosy and it was great to see work by other students. It was nice to have a small group and we were chatting as well as focusing on our pottery. Thanks so much and look forward to collecting my tea cups and bowl that I made!

I learned how to make a pot and a trinket dish using white and yellow clay. It was a fun afternoon activity with my husband and he enjoys it. Yen Yu is very patient, informative and is very helpful even before we attended the workshop to my inquires and question. A really good workshop for those who're interested to learn about pottery and weekend activity's for couple too!

Cozy Pots Ceramics workshop was a super introduction to an amazing artistic medium. The spirit of the event - creativity, calm and communal - was only trumped by coming away with a host of great things and learning plenty in the process.

Yen was a great teacher and really friendly. We practised different techniques which was great fun for a complete novice. Looking forward to collecting my final pieces!
review
Matt - February 10th
We had a lovely time with Yen Yu at Cozy Pots Creative Studio - in two hours we managed to make two coffee cups, a mug, a plant pot and a vase using a variety of techniques. Yen was very friendly and informative, but also gave us space to be creative rather than dictating what we should make. Two hours flew by and we didn't want to leave!

Manisha - January 8th
Learned how to make 2 containers using two different techniques. Yen is a friendly, patient & knowledgable teacher. The whole vibe in the workshop was super chilled, relaxed & easy like Sunday morning (music included). For me, it was peaceful & meditative. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Can’t wait to collect my works of heart!

I loved it soooo much. The teacher Yen Yu was amazing and super helpful. I learned how to work two different types of ceramics and can’t wait to go pick up the pieces. I went away for holidays but I’m going to join again the first Saturday I’m back. Irene

Denise - November 20th
As my first experience I would recommend it. Yen Yun is a quite, pacific human being; she’s there checking if everything’s okay, helping you and suggesting you how to reach your “final goal” aka your pottery.
review
Josie - October 26th
Yen Yu was lovely, friendly and relaxed. We settled into making fairly quickly without too much time spent on instructions, which we liked - learn by doing! We learned the basic technique behind making a mug/bowl (though I think you can make anything you like really). For me it was a 2-3hr practice in letting go of what I thought I was making and seeing the beauty of what emerged. All in all, a fun meditative way to spend a few hours with a friend.

Doniya Soni - September 30th
We had an amazing two hours making ceramics with Yen. She was very accommodating and flexible and allowed us to reschedule due to an emergency on the day we originally booked. The class was comprehensive, interesting and most importantly fun. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is interested in clay pottery.

Relaxing ceramic hand-building workshop. You can create whatever you want, Yen Yu will teach you hand-building methods and give you suggestions if you get stuck. You also get an unlimited supply of clay to use as well! :)

Yen Yu is a really good teacher. The class is very chilled and you can essentially make what you want after you learn the different hand building techniques. You can make practical things or experimental things, Yen Yu is very relaxed and will help bring your vision to life.

Super cosy studio with a lovely and helpful Teacher! We bought the 3 sessions and it was great to be able to come back over a series of weeks to work on our tableware pieces. I would highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a more in depth class. It was a chilled out vibe and we had a good amount of freedom to experiment and play. Would definitely go back!

So lovely! I had the best time. The class is really fun and allows you to learn the basics of ceramics. You will be in a small group (6-8 people), in a very relaxed atmosphere with cool music in the background. Very therapeutic :)

It's a very relaxing environment to learn new skills or build new hobby. The teacher is encouraging and willing to teach or answer questions me until I fully understand how it works. There are several workshop options as well as special workshop depends on events and holidays. I highly recommend spending some of your time to learn new things and release your stress :)
