Sarah Cassidy - Mar 13, 2022
I and 4 girlfiends had a lovely afternoon potting in Sampada's beautiful canalside studio yesterday. We were all beginners and yet with her clear and gentle teaching style we produced some fine work - even if I say so myself ! She has 5 wheels and a large working table and 7 of us worked very comfortably between the two. I will definitely be arranging another session. her

Laura Mulligan - Feb 27, 2022
Really enjoyable and relaxing. A nice environment with a lovely, knowledgeable and helpful teacher.
Shameel Batavia - Feb 22, 2022
Such a great Sunday session with Sampada! She's a great teacher and explains what to do really well. The class is a good length and you have the chance to make loads of different pieces, some on the wheel and some by hand. There's no pressure involved, it's just turning up and having fun making pottery in a beautiful studio! It was a great gift for my girlfriend and we've already recommended it to family and friends!
Amiel Fabrigas - Feb 22, 2022
Sampada was a great teacher and was really nice! She was very good at explaining the basics and different techniques. The session was long enough to do anything that you’d like to make. Would definitely go back again.

Vaishali Doctor - Feb 14, 2022
I received this as a birthday gift. I had been wanting to do for quite some time. The class is extremely well structured and the information given by Sampada was very accurate and detailed. Very calm, relaxed ambience. She was extremely helpful and patient and I had a very good, interesting and a learning experience. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is willing to try and learn something new. Will be trying again.
Julia Churchill-Angus - Feb 2, 2022
Really fun and we’ll taught class!
Sara & Alex - Feb 1, 2022
We did the 3 hour beginners session and it was fantastic! We got to do some throwing and also hand sculpting, and it felt very relaxed and fun! Sampada was a great teacher; she explained everything really well and was patient with us all when we were using the wheel! Would highly recommend. We now have some new bowls to add to our collection of crockery at home!
Sara Fico - Jan 30, 2022
Amazing experience, I learnt so much in 3 hours. Sampada is talented and super good as teacher. Highly recommend!!!
Bethany Freeman - Jan 20, 2022
Really interactive and fun class. Being able to use the wheel to create some pottery but also create some at the table. You have the option to pay £5 per item to have it painted and to collect in a few weeks time. If you don’t want to keep your items all the clay is recycled!
Linzy Elton - Jan 17, 2022
I really enjoyed this class, Yoko was a great teacher! For me, the best part was learning how to use the wheel, as I'd never done it before. I can't wait to see what my creations look like after glazing!
Philip Adams - Jan 11, 2022
Amazing Christmas present! Lovely friendly manner in a pleasant setting. Clear and concise instructions that enabled us to create our own pottery items in just three hours.
Lua Maria Crespo Anastacio - Jan 10, 2022
The class was great. The studio is beautiful and super nice. Sampada explains everything very calmly and we have enough time to put our creativity into practice. Recommend and would do again.
Tony - Dec 20, 2021
The pottery class hosted by Sampada was fantastic! As someone who has never been artistic or creative, let alone done pottery, the class was very relaxed with helpful guidance from Sampada. Her teaching style is second to none, where enough information is given without overwhelming you. The 3 hour class is a good length, once you get a hang of the techniques, you have ample time to experiement and have fun.
Jihyun Hwang - Dec 15, 2021
It was an absolutely fun experience! Sampada was very welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable. 3 hours went so quickly! She managed well to take care of everyone and It was a very enjoyable & peaceful experience. I would recommend it to anyone who interested in pottery. 
Jeremy Stern - Dec 13, 2021
A lovely facility, bright, modern and well equipped. A well paced class, with good teaching - and using the wheel really was good fun. Only downside; because of the nature of clay you cannot take your work home with you - it needs to dry out for a couple of weeks. And if you want it painted, by her, then it is an extra charge, but only £5 a piece. Otherwise great.
Clifton - Dec 13, 2021
I had the best time learning pottery with Sampada. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. The session was very practical and I was able to come out of the session with two presentable pieces. Highly recommend

Laura Kravac - Oct 11, 2021
This is such a brilliant workshop for anyone new to pottery. Sampada is a fantastic leader who strikes a great balance between demonstrating and letting you learn on your own in a really relaxed setting. I created three pieces of pottery and left with a spark to continue with more training.
Domo Suki - Oct 9, 2021
We really enjoyed our pottery class with Sampada in her lovely studio. Really nice atmosphere, friendly and very exciting class. We made quite a few pots and used the pottery wheel (new experience!).

Sampada was informative and helpful. The class passed by in a flash and we all had turns at hand building and using the pottery wheel. There was a relaxed vibe to the class that helped you feel more confident. I loved it and want to go back!
Jibreel Shaikh - Sep 20, 2021

Nice afternoon and great intro to pottery. Will definitely do it again. Thanks 👍🏻
Kate Adams - Aug 24, 2021
Thoroughly enjoyed the session, I got completely immersed in the pottery that the time flew. I'd like more time on the wheel and would like to have more classes/learn more about the art of pottery as a result. Thank you so much for a great workshop!
Mira V - Aug 16, 2021
What a wonderful sampler pottery class! It was nicely informal, really friendly and so well taught by Sampada with help from Alison. I really enjoyed the session it was such fun!
Eve Gould - Jul 12, 2021
The class was amazing, super relaxed and as a complete beginner it was so satisfying to wheel throw. The class allowed us to follow our own creativity and make whatever we wanted, I'd recommended it to everyone and think I'd like to take up wheel throwing in the future!
Bethan Marchant - Jul 5, 2021

Stephanie - Nov 2, 2020
Sampada is an excellent passionate teacher who really makes you feel comfortable trying different techniques. Very reasonable price to have your creations glazed and fired too! I loved the studio as well, very warm and welcoming
James - Oct 26, 2020
It was so good! We really wanted to do a workshop where we had the opportunity to try different methods of pottery. Sampada was such a great friendly teacher and made the whole 3 hours seem so relaxed, personal and enjoyable. We couldn’t believe how quickly the time went and has made us just want to book another course now. I’d highly recommend to anyone.
Sara - Oct 19, 2020
Such a great workshop. Thanks Sampada!
alex - Oct 5, 2020
This was great!!! I had a great time. Sampada made everything really easy and entertaining. And her studio is GORGEOUS. It was a great activity. If anything, I do believe that for the price of the workshop there should be at least glazing and firing included for one piece - maybe offer only one glazing colour, but give everyone the option to take one of their pieces home as something included in the price. If anyone wants more pieces, or different colours, they can pay for those! But I think this would give an even better memory of the workshop. It was a great day regardless, and would really recommend.
Sophie - Sep 26, 2020
Great for first timers! Our teacher created a very friendly and fun atmosphere.
Joella - Sep 22, 2020

Angeliki - Sep 14, 2020
Amazing class and great instructor! First timer here and totally worth it! :)
Ruby - Aug 31, 2020
Incredible hands on class with complete creative freedom in a beautiful, calm and bright studio. Sampada is a wonderful teacher who gives you one on one teaching time on the wheel and creates a warm, friendly and confident environment. I can’t wait to come again!
Kerry - Aug 21, 2020
Brilliant workshop led by a brilliant teacher. Sampada guided us through various hand building techniques and wheel throwing. We managed to all create small pots and trinkets to take home with us.
Kerry - Aug 21, 2020
Absolutely fantastic workshop with Sampada - couldn’t recommend it more! The studio overlooks a beautiful canal, creating a great atmosphere. Sampada went through different hand building techniques and how to throw on the wheel. She is a fantastic teacher and an amazing potter. Would love to come back.
Paul - Aug 3, 2020
A lovely afternoon with Sampada (who we recognised from TV!) She was very sweet and patient, listening to our aspirations for the session and showing us the best techniques to help achieve them. We look forward to seeing how our various items look after the firing! The studio is lovely, light and quiet. It has great views over the canal. Very highly recommended.
holly - Jul 26, 2020
I attended this work shop yesterday for my friends birthday. Initially we had this booked prior to the lockdown but my friend was sick. Sampada was very accommodating and allowed us to re schedule. Due to the pandemic our class had to be postponed. As soon as we was allowed to schedule in a date we attended the class. Sampada is an amazing teacher and you can tell she really loves what she does!
Maha - Jul 13, 2020
I surprised my husband with an introductory pottery class and we both loved it. The instructor Sampada was really great, and we liked the balance between her letting us experiment on our own and guiding us when needed. The class was really relaxing and the bright studio overlooking the canal added to the relaxation factor. I can't wait to make this a joint hobby my husband and I can enjoy together.
Elaine - Jul 12, 2020
Would 100% recommend. Thank you Sampada! You’re awesome!

We loved our afternoon with Sampada, who was really flexible with the amount of creations we made and great fun, brilliant teacher. Nibbles and prosecco was laid on... All of us seemed to really enjoy it in the small group. As it was Valentines Day we were given gorgeous little gifts too! Couldn't have asked for more.

It could not have been a better experience. The space is inviting and bright and located just beside a beautiful river. The teacher was so helpful and came up with good ideas for us to try. She was super patient even when I got a fair few things wrong and she played chilled music while we worked which gave us a very calming atmosphere to work in. 5 stars and would highly recommend to anyone looking to give pottery a go for the first time!!

Claire - Aug 3, 2019
Slightly Curious studio is a great place to both learn and practice pottery. We covered both throwing and hand-crafting in this session and I really enjoyed the format of it: she starts off by showing you different techniques and tips as to how to do things, then gives you free reign to try them out and experiment or practice. If you need, she's great at giving you guidance as to how to achieve a specific design if you have one in mind. Overall Slightly Curious is a wonderful and relaxing environment to do pottery in (I should also mention the studio is really aesthetic and has an adorable view on a canal with boats and ducks) and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to try out or practice pottery!
Kavi - Jul 21, 2019
My friend and I went to the pottery workshop yesterday afternoon. It was such a fantastic experience! The teacher was patient and friendly. She had a friendly approach and was helpful with any questions we had. The session was therapeutic and we learnt multiple skills such as hand techniques and wheel throwing. I would definitely recommend The Slightly Curious Studio for pottery classes.
Hana Mohamed - Jul 9, 2019
The class was really therapeutic but enjoyable at the same time. Sampada is a really awesome teacher and I definitely want to come back again! :)
Nicola - Jul 8, 2019
We received a very friendly welcome and were surprised by how much we managed to achieve in the 3-hour class. We had a lot of fun and laughs and got suitably splattered in clay using the wheel so we looked like artists even if our work told a different story!
Robin - Jun 25, 2019
This workshop was just fantastic, we had a great time. Sampada is the perfect host - incredibly welcoming and friendly, as well as a fantastic teacher (and a talented artist to boot!). We couldn't have asked for more from this workshop. Two thumbs up, very highly recommended!

Julie - Jun 1, 2019
I attended this class with my sister and niece. We received a really warm welcome by Sampada who then went on to explain everything that we were going to do. There were 6 of us on the course, which was about right (it was a really nice group). Sampada was patient with us all and very encouraging. Overall the course was unexpectedly relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Will definitely be coming back (especially for the chocolate break!).
Rajesh - May 30, 2019
Very nicely conducted workshop. We did the pottery class and are definitely going back to Sampada to refine skills further. Great studio setting and Sampada is a very talented artist. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Florence - May 29, 2019
The pottery workshop is amazing and definitely worth booking! The groups are kept purposely small which means that you get plenty of advice, attention and guidance. The explanations are clear, easy to follow and visual as Sampada adopts a hands on approach. The learning pace adapts to each person and it is made very clear that we are here to enjoy and relax. She has this very communicative positive, energetic attitude which keeps the workshop light and fun. The venue is also great, it is bright, spacious and comfortable. I can't recommend this experience enough!
Imran - May 28, 2019
Instructor was very helpful and hands on! Variety of techniques taught and good vibes
Thomas - May 27, 2019
Excellent class with a brilliant instructor! To be honest I booked this as a treat for my girlfriend and didn't expect to enjoy it, but I really found the whole experience from start to finish to be a really interesting and laid back experience, it's very calming creative and the three hours flys by. I'd book again 100% Instructor was chilled and relaxed and made it feel fun rather than stressful, definetely added a personal touch into the experience that made it much more enjoyable and welcoming. Also free twix bars and music! Great fun. :)
Antoine - May 20, 2019
Hello :-) We had a great afternoon on the pottery workshop. This was a birthday surprise for my partner and Sampada played the surprise until the very end so that was appreciated. The class was good fun, straight to the essentials of pottery practice, without too much competition or making it too serious. It was relaxing and we also enjoyed nice conversation.
Marie - May 20, 2019
Sampada was a wonderful teacher, and the class felt welcoming and intimate. The studio overlooks the canal and feels like a rare find in NW London! Would highly recommend.

I personally wasn't sure what to expect from the class when I signed up to it with couple of my friends. But ended up having the best time and also learnt a lot. Sampada was a great teacher, being able to accommodate a mixed group of varying skill levels. She was able to make the session very informative yet extremely fun.

Ruth - May 11, 2019
I really enjoyed the pottery workshop with Sampada. She is a great teacher with lots of patience & banter to help you through the process. It was a lovely environment, in a bright & clean studio. I’ve never done pottery before & it was great to learn the different techniques of hand throwing & using the wheel. I will definitely be trying it again! Can’t wait to see the end results after the glazing & firing!
Marion Main - May 10, 2019
This was something I have been wanting to do for a long time and the workshop fulfilled my expectations and more. I love crafts and making things and was delighted that I managed to produce very reasonable pieces after only one session. Sampada the instructor is calm, helpful and very knowledgeable. She gives you confidence and exactly the right amount of assistance. It was everything I wanted and more and I'm already planning my next session

I love crafts and making things and was delighted that I managed to produce very reasonable pieces after only one session. Sampada the instructor is calm, helpful and very knowledgeable. She gives you confidence and exactly the right amount of assistance. It was everything I wanted and more and I'm already planning my next session

I really enjoyed our pottery lesson and will deginately go back again. Our teacher was lovely, incredibly informative and a very good practical teacher. We all managed to make bowls on the wheel, largely due to her excellent teaching skills. The venue was great - very well laid out for everyone working - there was lots of tools and examples of other work available and it was near to a train station and buses and the directions for getting to the venue were also excellent.

What a great workshop, a perfect introduction into hand built and thrown pottery technique with exactly the right balance of instruction and hands on experience. The 'canal-side' studio is beautiful and Sampada is an excellent host and a pleasure to spend time with. I'd really recommend this workshop as an introduction to pottery or simply a great escape from your day to day.

The class with Sampada was a lot of fun and at the same time I learned a lot, both about throwing on the wheel and hand-building techniques that we were able to try out. Sampada thanks for such a good and relaxing class! I look forward to picking up the glazed pieces in a few weeks.

The workshop was a super cool space. Really intimate class which gave everyone the best potential for learning and one to one teaching. My friend and I had loads of time on the wheel and also plenty of time hand making our different models, we even ran over the class time so that we could finish, there was no rush or worry. The teacher had a clear passion for pottery which came through, it was a lovely experience and I will 100% be booking it again.

I have been to pottery/wheel throwing class and made it for a follow up glazing class. The class activities fit the description on Obby. The class was relaxed, we listened to some music and even managed to have some tea & biscuits. The teacher, Sampada, is a really easy person to talk to. She walked me through all techniques, was always knowledgable when I had no idea how to continue. The wheel throwing was probably my most favourite part! The studio is neat and filled with Sampada’s artwork. First-timers in the area, make sure you have some extra time for you arrival - the entrance is little hidden and it took me some time to find it! :-)

Sampada was very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Her pottery class was really fun and in a nice location and she provided a relaxed environment. I would definitely recommend her class for anyone wanting to give pottery a go without signing up to courses.

I had a fab time at The Slightly Curious Studio! Pottery is something I’ve never done before and was a little nervous. Sampada made me feel much more confident, the studio has a very relaxed atmosphere with no pressure to learn too quickly. She also makes sure everyone has something to show for their time too. With ample time to try the wheel and hand building the class gives an overall view of pottery and I really enjoyed using the wheel which I thought would be the hardest. With gentle guidance and helpful hints I loved everything I made and have 3 pieces to remember the day by. Highly recommend and will be back!

Sampada’s ceramics workshop was insightful, relaxing and above all fun. The small group ensured that Sampada was able to provide tailored teaching to each student and coach them them in how to progress in various aspects of ceramics. Sampada’s class demonstrated multiple techniques used in hand modelling of clay to produce creative and organic structures as well as the use of the potters wheel for more symmetrical shapes. I would certainly recommend Sampada’s workshop to anyone who is wanting to learn more about ceramics or just wanting a flavour of it.

Amazing, relaxed, fun introduction to pottery. I had never tried before pottery before and this gave me a great introduction to hand-building and the wheel. Sampada is a great teacher and a lovely person. I’m looking forward to another session at the Slightly Curious Studio.

Demos of the techniques and then good encouragement and help to achieve results. Sampada also offers very fair prices for firing and glazing any pieces you want to keep.
