Working with clay can be very messy so please consider this when deciding what to wear. Also please note that the process of throwing on the wheel with long fingernails is difficult and you may require assistance to open and pull up the walls of your pot.

Really great first class at Sak Beh. The space is lovely and peaceful and it’s a small group - so you get plenty of one on one. The time flew by and I can’t wait to get back next week. I really recommend if you’re new to throwing. I hadn’t done it for about twenty years so was very rusty but you get straight in to having a go yourself, with some gentle guidance. Such a relaxing Sunday afternoon

Good clear advice and a relaxed atmosphere when starting out to throw pots. In a light room with tea and coffee.😊

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…

The course was unbelievably great fun! Tessa was a fantastic teacher and the class was in a small enough group (7 of us) so you were always able to seek help when you needed it. Tessa and her colleague are there to help make sure you progress as much as possible, while the class is 2 hours long there certainly isn't any clock watching for you to leave. I managed to make 5 pieces and in turn have a much shorter xmas present list :) I couldn't recommend the course enough and it was a brilliant way to spend a couple of hours on Sunday, super relaxing. I'm VERY tempted to do it again!

I'm really enjoying my classes. Tessa's studio is so beautiful & spotlessly clean. She's really friendly and makes sure to spend 1:1 time with everyone in class to help develop their skills and the forms we make.

The course was well planned and organised. We were able to move onto the throwing very quickly and enjoy success early on. Highly recommended.

The course was my second throwing experience, but the first one so in depth. Tessa is a good and patient teacher. She balances 1-2-1 time and group explanations very well. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait to pick up my creations!

Great to get to see and experience every stage of the process! Tessa is great.

Excellent work environment. Clear and focused teaching technique across the five weeks. Outstanding support from the teacher and the technician. First class modelling of work practice. Great atmosphere.
Annie - Feb 2, 2020
The studio is the cleanest I've seen; small class size; a lot of creative freedom; and thoughtful instruction. It was a very personable experience. I highly recommend this course to get the foundations of the full process.
