What you will do

3 hour class

Evening

This is a wheel and hand building session for individuals who want to practice what they learned on workshops and courses taken at Sak Beh Pottery or elsewhere. It is not a taught class and you will be working independently. If you have throwing experience but no trimming or glazing experience, then you will need to arrange a session in glazing and trimming (shaping your pot and creating a foot ring using trimming tools) by contacting us at Sak Beh Studio Pottery.

Practice sessions are an ideal option for those who want to develop their throwing and hand building skills at their own pace. Although this is not a taught course, there will be a mentor on hand to show you where things are and to help you set up. These practice sessions are specifically intended for individuals who have already taken workshops or courses in throwing or hand building and are now looking to grow their skills at their own pace. Please do not book if you have no prior experience in throwing or hand building. If you have any queries or questions, please contact us at Sak Beh Studio Pottery.

The use of tools, equipment, glazes, slips etc are included in the price of the session however the clay is charged at £4 per 1 kg. The last 20 minutes of every session will be devoted to cleaning up your wheel and tools. The mentor will be on hand to guide you through the clean up procedure.

Wheel Throwing and Hand Building Practice Sessions by Sak Beh Pottery - art in London

About your host, Sak Beh Pottery

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 doing doctoral research in Maya archaeology at UCL. Inspired by Maya ceramic art, and in particular the pots which combined sculpted and painted imagery, Tessa moved from research back to making. After attending courses in pottery and taking up a membership at a London pottery studio, she set up Sak Beh Pottery and is now a full-time potter and maker.

Tessa's works are informed by both her Fine Art training and her research into Ancient Maya ceramic art. The phrase 'Sak Beh' can be found on Ancient Maya monuments where it refers to the Milky Way as an ancestral path or road as well as the physical roads which connect people to places. In keeping with its namesake, Sak Beh Pottery is envisaged as a place for community interaction within the context of a creative journey.

Notes

Working with clay can be very messy so it is worth bearing this in mind when deciding what to wear. Please note, this is not a taught session but a mentor will be on hand to help you set up.
