You'll learn how to make bowls, plates and pots using the techniques of slab and coil - no experience required and it's BYOB.

"I'd recommend this to anyone - from a beginner like me, to more experienced who is looking for a fun and relaxing experience" - Lipsheon

You'll mould earthenware clay, smooth it and paint it, ending up with 2-3 unique bowls, plates or pots of different shapes and sizes. They'll look great in your home or as a wonderful gift!

The process is as follows: Session 1: Mould earthenware clay into your basic shapes using the techniques of slab and coil. After learning the basics, feel free to experiment! Session 2 - 2 weeks later: Allow your bowls, plates and pots to dry and be kiln fired (first firing). Then come by again to decorate the now kiln fired items in colours of your choosing. We have a wide variety of paints you can use. After it's painted, we will glaze and then kiln fire it again (2nd firing) and ta da - done! Your handmade bowls, plates or pots will then be made available for collection or delivery.

Part 2 is 2 weeks after Part 1 at the same time.

If you end up not being able to make the 2nd session - we can figure out another time to do it, don't worry!

You’ll have lots of fun, get your hands dirty, learn some nifty pottery techniques and feel the mindfulness effects of being creative while playing with clay - it is amazing!

The space is inviting and cozy and staff are very friendly. Class was lovely and interesting and we really enjoyed ourselves, we would love if it was a bit more in depth and educational but this is our own personal need and want to learn more techniques.

About your host, M.Y.O (Make Your Own)

M.Y.O ('Make Your Own) has arts & crafts studios for grown ups, with colourful studios in Borough and Peckham Levels. We provide a relaxed and fun space for you to learn new things, be creative and make something to be proud of. Think of M.Y.O as an art gym for your creative muscles! We're BYOB too!

You can explore our range of creative classes; from painting (paper, tiles or ceramics), tassel earrings and chalkboard lettering, to life drawing, handmade ceramics, lino printing, calligraphy, illustration, watercolour flower painting, decoupage, t-shirt / tote bag design and lots more! You can just book creative time in the studio to use the equipment and materials to try different things or you can book into more guided sessions. Materials and guidance are of course included. We do on-site and off-site sessions too. You'll also enjoy the proven mindfulness benefits of getting your creative fix, whilst making something with your hands.

We can't wait to get creative with you!
