What you will do

2 hour workshop

Evening

This workshop uses an ancient technique called coiling to build a bowl in sections.

Everything is sculpted by hand: You'll start by using sausages of clay to build the basic bowl and blend it into a strong form. Once the shape of your dish is complete, the clay is dried until it is firm enough to carve, pare and polish into a finished dish.

Your teacher will demonstrate each of the stages and you'll spend the workshop building, sculpting and smoothing a breakfast bowl that you can used in your own home.

At the end of the workshop, you'll be able to choose one of the studio glazes for your bowl. The clay and glazes we use here are strong and durable, so your finished pieces can be used just like everything else in your kitchen and are dishwasher and microwave friendly.

Once left with us, your finished bowl will be carefully dried, glazed and twice fired. It will be ready in about 3 weeks time and you'll be able to choose between collecting it in person or having it delivered for an additional fee.

Did you know?

The studio is located just off Pottery Lane, in an area of old London that used to be called the 'Piggeries & Potteries': Clay was dug up here and made into bricks to build the rest of London. And, into the huge pits left behind, moved the pigs... and pig mess! One of the slurry pits that developed (so huge it was called 'the ocean') stood where Avondale Park is now, just next to the studio, and opposite is the last surviving bottle kiln in London. You can take a look when you visit :)

A great workshop for beginners in a very friendly studio learning the basic skills required to work clay on a wheel. Started with an in depth demonstration of all the techniques we would be using before getting our hands dirty and making our bowls (with a little help)! Would highly recommend!

A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours learning something new. Odile was fantastic. She explained everything really well and was very patient and helpful. The space and group size were also good and it feels great to make something with your own hands! Thank you.

I had a fantastic time at Odile’s workshop. She was hugely instructive and made pottery seem easy. She didn’t rush us and allowed us to take our time and just have fun with it. Highly recommend the class!

We had a really enjoyable afternoon doing this class. Odile was thorough in talking us through the materials and tools that we were working with. She did the demonstrations at a pace that was easy to follow. She also paid everyone enough attention so we were assured as to how we were getting on. We learnt different techniques of handling the clay, including how to shape our bowls and make modifications at different stages of making it. There are several colours of glazes that we could choose, and Odile would take our bowls away and glaze and fire them after the class. So we'd get our bowls in the post after a few weeks. As a bonus, it was also quite meditative working on clay, so overall a really nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Thanks again, Odile!

Make Your Own Breakfast Bowl by Odile Cadiot Ceramics - art in London

About your host, Odile Cadiot Ceramics

Odile studied chemistry, but fell in love with pottery after trying some evening classes in Farnham. After learning to throw and run a studio by working with other artists, she decided to set up her own space in West London which she runs with her partner Kieran.

Odile now works full time as a potter and pottery teacher. She's invented many of the tools, teaching aids and techniques they use at the studio and is constantly experimenting with new ideas and processes. . She also likes cooking and gardening because she can make the dishes...

Their studio is in a beautifully light and spacious little building, aptly named the Pottery Lane Art Centre, or PLACE, which works with the primary school next door to boost access to arts education and facilities. The centre also works to promote local artists with residencies, art markets and a shop on site selling only handmade and original art & crafts.

Notes

You'll have everything you need waiting for you at the studio, including refreshments, lockers for your possessions and room to change. It's best to wear clothes you don't mind getting clay on (it washes out without difficulty) and you'll find the project easier if your nails are well trimmed. This workshop usually takes two hours, but sometimes runs over as each group is able to work at their own pace.
