This was my first ever pottery class and it was awesome. The tutor was really friendly, clear and knowledgeable and the atmosphere was really relaxed. For two and a half hours I was absorbed in making with clay and completely forgot about the day job - just what I needed. Thank you Art4Space, can't wait to return!

My friend gifted me with class as a birthday present and we had a FANTASTIC time. It was so fun to spend time together doing something creative. Our thoughtful instructor John, taught us three techniques for working with clay. At the end of the class we made three pots and got to pick our glazes. The pots will then be mailed to our addresses in four weeks. Highly recommend this class and the value you get out of it!

Very fun ! Plenty of time to practice and we had all the clay we wanted to create :)
George Webb - 29 December 2023
Fantastic time learning the three basic techniques for clay sculpting. Best thing I've done in ages.
Jill Thursby - 9 October 2023
I had such a great time at this session. The instructor, Natti, was very knowledgeable and friendly, and answered all of my questions. She quickly showed us the 3 styles of hand building pottery, allowing the group time to take our time with the styles we were most interested in. The venue and vibe was fantastic, including the playlist. I’ve just got my items back and although I’m not going to quit my day job, I’m impressed at what I was able to accomplish in a short time. Would highly recommend and hope to be back!

My second class with Art4Space in hand clay. Truly enjoyed Natti as our tutor. I can't wait to receive my three finished pieces! As it was my second time, it was great that I had already tried all the three techniques last time and could focus this time on the techniques I enjoyed the most.

The workshop was really enjoyable, very relaxed and a perfect way to unwind creatively.
Arianna Dalla Costa - 1 September 2023
Great experience! The teacher was very nice and knowledgeable, and her explanation of the various techniques we explored was clear and instructive. Very nice atmosphere. I would only suggest that the description on the website should be changed: it promised nibbles which were not there!
Alex Hinson - 1 September 2023
What a fantastic evening! I learned new skills, made new friends, and cannot wait to receive my creations in the mail. 100% recommend!!!
Christina Holmbek - 15 June 2023
I had the best time! The workshop leader was lovely, so the whole class was calming and fun. Despite the relaxed atmosphere, I actually managed to make three whole pieces! Just got them in the mail, and I love them They are by no means perfect, but I'm still proud of them.
Kat Stone - 12 May 2023
My friends and I really enjoyed the workshop with John. He gave great guidance to three techniques, enjoyed a glass of wine with the making, and got stuck in with the clay pieces. Looking forward to receiving my finished pieces! Will definitely come back for another clay making session!

Beverly Folan - 2 December 2022
Have done this class with John twice now and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a lovely studio with great chilled music, drinks, including a glass of wine if you want one! John is a lovely and very patient teacher who will guide you if you are a beginner or have worked with clay before. He is very knowledgeable with clay and glazes etc. It's really relaxing and I highly recommend this for a night out with friends or coming alone to meet new people and being creative. I will be back!

I found Art4Space as a very friendly, welcoming and safe environment. I have never worked with clay before - it was new and a very fun experience for me. Nice,friendly and relaxing atmosphere in the room made it easy for me to chat to other participants and make new colleagues - loved that. It was a great opportunity to do something creative. John, the teacher of our pinch pot making classes was very kind, helpful and knowledgeable. Looking forward to visit Art4Space again.
