Classes

Four session course

Evening

A four week course (two hours per session) for people who want to learn the possibilities of clay. Each two hour evening class will be spent learning varieties of hand building techniques as well as surface decorations and ways to interpret ideas into three dimensional forms.

Week one will be spent learning a variety of techniques - pinch-pots, coil building and slab-building. Learners will then adapt these techniques over the following three weeks to create ceramic work from their own ideas. From pot making to sculpture, learners will be encouraged to use their imagination and interests to make work that can be decorated with, slips, underglazes, oxides and/or glazes.

Classes are for a maximum of five people, ensuring everyone has support in a friendly and fun environment. Prices include all basic materials and firings (which will include an initial bisque firing and a glaze firing). You can purchase additional specialist glazes upon request.

All abilities welcome.

What a fabulous course. I had never done ceramics before and Martha explained what to do but encouraged us to explore our own creative ideas. Ut was a small group and a really relaxing way to spend Tuesday evenings - will definitely book again!

Martha was a very good, skilled teacher, who created a relaxed, productive atmosphere. Explanations were clear, help was always available, and even in this very short course, everybody was able to produce interesting and pleasing work. Thanks.

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!!!!

Martha's a really helpful and relaxed teacher. She makes you feel at ease even when you're a complete beginner! The atmosphere is very informal and although the space is small, it works well and the group is always friendly. I would thoroughly recommend Martha's classes! Louise Palmer

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. :)

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.

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!

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 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.

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!!

This was a great course. Really good value too. Martha is a patient and generous teacher and I think most of our class is coming back to book more classes. The venue was nice with lots of work around to inspire. Definitely signing up again in the future.

These are brilliant classes, perfect for total beginners or anyone with experience. Studio1 is a lovely cosy studio close to Wood Green tube station. Martha goes above and beyond to make everyone welcome and to help them to achieve their ideas. I’ve learnt so much. I’ve been to several courses and will definitely be booking again!
