Yes really enjoyable again. 4 weeks goes too quickly. Martha is great and lets you do what you want and gives advice when needed, provides a warm drink and washes up the equipment too which is fab!

Great course with the freedom to work on own project. The class is small enough that we all felt like we had enough attention. And I loved the results, I’ll defo be back again in the summer!

What a wonderful way to spend and evening. Martha is skilled and knowledgable and it shows because of the improvements I have made over weeks. Thank you!

Priya Dabasia - January 21st
I did a bit of pottery back in my school days and was really keen to get back into the practice. Martha's ceramics course certainly delivered! The classes take place in a quaint studio within a 2-minute walk of Wood Green station. Martha is incredibly patient and tailors her teaching to suit the needs of each to person. I met incredible people and learned so much over the 4-week course...coil pots, pinch pots and ended up making a baby penguin sculpture! I've booked another 4 classes and can't wait to add to the collection. I highly recommend Martha's classes so don't delay...they are very popular!

Great course that I keep coming back to. You can develop your ceramics skills as and how you want to, and Martha will guide you.

review
Oliver Roxon - November 6th
I learnt loads of different techniques and lots about ceramics in general. Martha is lovely - super enthusiastic, you can never ask too many questions, and she's really keen to help you. The space is great - cosy and full of interesting things. It's also in a good location really close to public transport, and with nice places for socialising nearby. There were 5 of us in the class, 3 of whom had done courses with Martha before, and I'll definitely be going back.

Jordan - September 10th
Studio 1 is a really cute, super relaxed and welcoming space for a weekly check-in to escape busy city life. Martha is warm and whitty and has all the fruit teas you can dream of. The small classes of 5 mean that it's not overwhelming for first timers like myself and means that everyone has guidance and attention enough to feel competent enough to work individually, whilst chatting and getting to know the other students. This is a really great taster course which left me feeling proud of the work I had produced and curious to explore ceramics further.

Thomas - August 14th
I got this course as a present for my girlfriends birthday and we both went. It was absolutely brilliant. Martha is fab, hands on when you need her but gives you space and freedom to make anything you want. Highly recommended!

Just such a great course and I keep rebooking and rebooking...
review
Julie - August 6th
I always really enjoy going and like you that you can choose what you want to make yourself but still get guidance on how to do it. Martha is always lovely even when she has been very busy!
review
Justyna - August 1st
Overall great course; studio is very nice and cosy with a lot of work to be inspired by. Martha is a great teacher, very attentive and explains all the techniques very well...my absolute favorite being building with 'sausages' :P There is very nice atmosphere and the fact that the classes are not big is that everyone get's the opportunity to discuss their own projects and have things explained multiple times if needed. Plus is good to be able to interact with other course takers. I highly recommend this studio; I've taken 8 classes for far and would be coming back for more if i didn't move south.

Really enjoyed the classes and learnt a lot in a short space of time. The atmosphere is really lovely and lots of great conversations amongst the small group which made it feel really relaxing for a Thursday evening activity. Martha is a great teacher and being surrounded by her work is inspiring. I will definitely be booking again!

Just love coming here. A little haven in Wood Green. You learn as you go along, get help when you ask for it, meet nice people etc. And get more ideas of what to do which makes you wanna come back for another month!
review
Sarah - September 5th
I'm almost embarrassed to leave another review as this is my 3rd course with Martha!! The fact that I've booked a 4-week course 3 times should be testament enough to just how great this is. If you see a space on one of her courses - book it quick!!
review

Have been coming to this class for a few months now. I would truly recommend it to anyone who wants to try their hand at ceramics. Also Martha is just the best teacher 👌🏻

Rosa - August 4th
I love these classes! Martha is a great teacher - very calm, experienced and knowledgable. I find the classes very therapeutic and I love the fact it is always a small class (5 ppl max) meaning Martha has a lot of time for each of us. I’ve been going on and off since January and will continue going for a long time.

My second ceramics course with Martha - think I'll be booking a third!! She's a great teacher and the space is so lovely. Would really recommend. Lots of advice on how to make my ideas come to life, and so many glazes etc to choose from!!

2 weeks into the 4 weeks course and I've already decided to book onto another one. Love it - great guidance with an opportunity to create your own thing.

Emma - June 3rd
Loved my four week course with Martha. She was a great teacher who gave loads of tips and ideas but lots of freedom to try out all our ideas. Would highly recommend
review
Sonia - June 2nd
I initially took a taster session with Martha, and enjoyed it so much I signed up for the evening ceramics course! Martha is an awesome teacher with incredible patience. She provides as much (or as little) guidance as you need, and is willing to work with the ideas you bring. It was a joy to spend evenings learning and creating at studio1ceramics!

I have been going to this class for x3 months now and I completely love spending a weekday evening being creative in such a nice environment. We all sit and have a chat with a coffee and be as creative as we want with clay 😍😍😍😍
review
OLGA - May 15th
Enjoyed the course very much. Martha is very relaxed about what you might want to do, assuming it can realistically be achieved. The space is small and 5 is a bit of a squeeze, but all the people I was there with were nice and got on with their own pieces of work. My friend and I made very different things and Martha is good at throwing around ideas so you can get as close as you can to what you want to make. A good 4 evenings, and I probably could have done with one more week!
review
Judy - May 14th
Really enjoyable and satisfying course - perfect if you want to learn the basics and complete your own projects. Less a formal step-by-step course, more about helping you to inspire/realise your own creative ideas.

I loved this course. Its a lovely little studio with a great, talented teacher. I will be booking more sessions.

Eleanor - May 4th
Great course. Small groups so it’s really cosy and you get time with the teacher. First class is techniques, following 3 classes are to work on your own projects with support if you need. :)

I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed weeknight ceramics classes @ studio1ceramics. It is so fulfilling to have some creative downtime during the week and Martha is so amazing at helping you bring your ideas to life. I am going to join this class again and probably will continue going for the foreseeable future!!!!
