What happens in this class?

During this workshop you'll learn how to make a mug using slabs of clay.

The very first step is actually to make the handle, which needs time to dry a little and uncurl before attaching. There are dozens of attractive and ergonomic handle shapes to choose from and you'll be shown how to make a shape that suits you.

Once the handles are made, you'll roll out, dry and smooth sheets of clay which can be shaped around a mould to create the body of your mug. The last stage is to join the handle and smooth…

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…

It was a fun class, I learned how to do a mug that looked like a mug in the end, which is amazing. The instructor was professional and very nice, made me feel welcomed and definitely knew what he was doing. The only down side was that I was the only person taking that class that day, which was a bit awkward at times but it wasn't their fault, and I still had a great time.

The workshop was well equipped with all that was needed and has a very relaxed atmosphere. I liked the fact that we got to make 4-5 handles to create different ideas.

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...

Everything was great. The teacher explained everything very good and you could always ask something. She came to you to help or to review your work. I now know how to work with clay and how mugs are made.

Had the most fantastic, absorbing, relaxing afternoon with Odile in her lovely spacious studio. She explained each step well and showed us simply how to go through the process of building our own slab pottery mug, and everyone in the group produce something unique and brilliant! I can’t wait to receive the finished product :oD

We had another brilliant session with Odile. Space to work independently, with support when you need it. Excited for the next class!

Odile is great! Her instructions are clear and helpful, which makes the class so much easier if you have no idea what you're doing. I really enjoyed her creative advice which helped to turn my ideas into something real. She really knows what she's doing!

Great class, Odile was great at explaining every step and was very helpful and encouraging. I have only tried wheel pottery (once and it was also a class with Odile!) before this class and I was surprised at how well my mug turned out to be!

Odile is such a lovely teacher, super patient and super clear with instructions. The class is great for beginners and people with some experience but want to learn more. The studio is absolutely stunning, such a lovely creative environment, I am definitely going back for more classes with Odile!
