What happens in this class?

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…

Things to remember

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…

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...

Brilliant experience! Got it as a birthday treat and it was a fun thing to do with a friend and learn something new! Found it very relaxing and creative and the teacher was really great! Definitely recommend!
Claire - July 25th
Great class, really well paced with lots of support. Can’t wait to collect our finished bowls after firing.

It was an amazing experience, Zach was wonderful and we had a lot of fun. It's truly a very nice activity.

I attended a 'taster class' in ceramics (made my own cereal bowl). It was the first time I've done anything with clay since I was a teen-ager (nearly 40 years!). My instructor was very attentive, and eager to help me along the process. He patiently helped me through the process, and I am proud of my final product. The studio is also very well set up, and a great place to work. They respect lock-down rules, and give ample space to work safely. I recommend to explore your creative side.

I absolutely loved the experience -my first and certainly not my last. A fun group, Odile and Kieran really create a wonderful atmosphere - great teaching style, informative and encouraging and I was delighted with the end result! Another big plus was focusing on this one thing - for obvious reasons! Time stood still/went in a blink and I left feeling so relaxed. Thank you so much Odile and Kieran
Alice Jones - April 25th
Lovely classes in a beautiful room with very good teaching and easy to follow steps. A wonderful experience that I would highly recommend and hope to do again soon!
Orly Kritzman - April 19th
Odile is a wonderful teacher! She is charming and patient and gives very clear instructions that are easy to follow. The class was paced correctly without feeling rushed or drawn out. A very relaxing experience. The studio is lovely and bright with glass walls all around and is very welcoming. I really enjoyed myself and will be signing up to her other courses.
Evelyn - September 7th
Thoroughly enjoyed my experience! It was lovely meeting Odile and even though I had no prior knowledge, I managed to follow along with no issues at all :) I enjoyed it so much that I've signed up for the 6 weeks Beginner's course. Can't wait to get started. :)
Kat - September 6th
A beautifully creative space! We had such a lovely time crafting our bowls and can’t wait to see how they turn out. I would highly recommend this.
Dianne - April 5th
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!

A really fun evening with an excellent casual environment to have fun and learn the basics of pottery. Would thoroughly recommend as a fun evening with a partner, a date or just generally!

Odile created a lovely relaxed environnement for us to form our very own breakfast bowl-authentic, no-fuss, simply a nice experience I d recomend to anyone looking to get their hands full with clay:) Thanks Odile-looking forward to receiving the bowls

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!

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.

Oli Town - July 16th
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!
