3hrs Wheel Throwing - Practice Sessions - Untaught

Practice sessions are untaught and are designed for potters who wish to improve their skills through practice. You need to have enough wheel throwing skills to be able to work unaided. This is not a beginners wheel throwing class but an improvers session. You can keep up to two pieces of work which will be trimmed and glazed in studio white for you at no extra cost. Alternatively, if you already have experience in trimming and glazing, and you wish to trim and glaze your own work on subsequent sessions, that is also an…

A calm and serene space. Very clean and organised studio. Small class size means all participants get adequate attention. Teresa is a very experienced teacher who is keen to pass on her knowledge.

Your Teacher

Sak Beh Studio Pottery was founded by Tessa Robinson, who lives and works in London. Her idea was to create a comfortable, homey place to work and be creative. Situated in a very busy and central location, just off Stoke Newington High Street, the studio is a drop of calm in a very fast moving world.

Tessa trained in Fine Art, specialising in sculpture (modelling in clay). On completion of a three year Post Graduate Course at the Royal Academy of Arts, Tessa set up a studio in Hackney. The transition from sculptor to potter came many years later whilst…

I did my first ever throwing class @ Sak Beh Studio back in November 2019, and have continued to do ad hoc classes throughout lockdown. The studio has been really accommodating during this difficult period and offering classes when can. Sak Beh in general is amazing, a great and calm space to learn with all the tools/equipment on hand. The teachers are fantastic and gently guide you through throwing which is a lot harder than it looks. You get to learn everything from how to make a basic pot to understanding how a studio works. A unique experience and amazing value. Highly recommended.

The atmosphere is calm and hard working, and the workshop owner, Tessa, is very attentive and her help is productive. The price is very reasonable for the reward!

Great!
Charmaine Che - May 13, 2021
Tessa is an amazing teacher and the studio is a complete dream - intimate, inspired, and the perfect throwing sanctuary. These kinds of classes are perfect for me to continue practicing and honing my skills, as I’m no longer a beginner but need to learn and develop! Big thanks to Tessa for creating this space.

A lovely, warm, clean studio and Tess is a great tutor.

Very good class. Excellent and very attentive teacher
Michael Amherst - May 5, 2021
Really enjoyed my time at Sak Beh. The tuition was excellent and really helped me improve.
Selena - Apr 30, 2021
I've lost count of what visit number this is for me now but needless to say, I love this space. Its so bright and airy, things are spotless and very COVID safe and Tessa patiently helps with any random question you may have and encourages creativity. I only wish there was studio membership available so I could go for more than just the single 3hrs a week! I'd love to be able to make more than 2 items a class and would happily pay for the additional clay and access hours.

Informative small class, which felt Covid secure. A beautiful array of glazes to choose from. Very excited for the next class! Thank you to Sak Beh and to Tessa our brilliant teacher.

Tessa was so helpful in guiding me along different processes I have not used before!
Selena - Dec 18, 2020
I love working in Tessa's studio. She has everything you need and the place is spotlessly clean and COVID precautions taken.

Great opportunity for independent projects with hands on help whenever requested from Tessa. Beautiful space in which to work in :)
