Liza - September 24th
Really great workshop, enjoyed it a lot! Perfect for beginners! Managed to make 3 pieces, 1 on the wheel and 2 hand built. Teachers were really nice, and it was all kept very safe (following covid restrictions), the room was very big so were able to spread out and keep safe distance.

Lauren - September 24th
Really enjoyed this session. It was my first time making pottery and loved that we got to try two different methods during the class. Our teacher was great. More than anything I loved the relaxed atmosphere and how the session helped with mindfulness and creativity.

Really enjoyed this class - we learnt quite a lot of techniques in one session and I loved working with the clay. It also felt very safe with Covid-19 guidelines thoroughly followed and plenty of space for social distancing. I’ll definitely be signing up for more workshops here!

I would highly recommend the pottery taster session! It was given to me as a birthday present and my friend and I had such a good time. Really big studio with lots of art around you for inspiration and the woman who led the session was so friendly and an excellent teacher - you get a great introduction to proper techniques and practices. I am hooked !

alex richardson - July 30th
I really enjoyed this pottery taster session. It was calm and quiet and safe with great cleanliness and social distancing. The teaching was excellent and we were given lots of different options to follow to make something that we could have fired. I have always wanted to have a go at throwing a pot and I managed it, it is harder than I expected but I ended up with a nice little bowl. I have booked another session to glaze and decorate. I can see this becoming a regular place to visit as it is just down the road for me and such a friendly creative environment to be part of. I loved it.
review
Sarah - July 30th
My son and I really enjoyed the pottery taster session especially throwing a pot on the wheel. The teacher was great despite not being able to be very hands on due to social distancing measures. We both managed to produce several pieces and look forward to booking a glazing session to finish them off.

review
Julia - July 27th
I really enjoyed the class - it was well explained, plenty of ideas and had great fun. It was well-managed in terms of safety. I made three pieces that I was really happy with and I'm looking forward to glazing them at the follow-on session. I'd highly recommend it!
review
Justina - March 2nd
The Pottery Taster session was absolutely fantastic. The studio is great - plenty of space for everyone, and lots of nice work around. In 2.5 hours we got to try building as well as throwing, I didn't expect to make several pieces rather than just one - that was really great. The tutors were really lovely and helpful, and the group size was great so that everyone got support and attention. Overall, a very creative space, very safe and supportive for beginners. I was very inspired and will definitely come back!
review
Giulia - March 1st
We truly enjoyed this insightful and relaxing workshop as well as the friendly and stimulating environment of Workshop 305. It's the right balance between providing an overview of pottery techniques and giving you enough time to make your own pieces that you can then come back and decorate at the following glazing and decorating session.
review
Aga - February 29th
Very informative session. I would probably prefer more time spent on the wheel but that just my personal preference. Both teachers were very knowledgeable and made it a good experience. Thank you.

All the ladies running it are super friendly, the vibe is really relaxed and I felt so comfortable just making stuff and chatting to people.

I highly recommend this and trust me you will love it and want to come back to do more!

I’d done a taster a couple of years ago elsewhere but needed a review before launching myself into pottery. This was the perfect class. Great instruction and guidance with tutors ready to answer any questions and all the tools you’d ever need. I’ll definitely be back!
review
Emma - January 16th
Great introduction to pottery! We did both wheel throwing and forming clay with our hands, and the session lasts a good amount of time to craft your first pottered items. The studio space is beautiful and the teachers are excellent. I will definitely book the glazing class next.

Prema - October 25th
Really enjoyed the workshop, thought it was a good introduction to both handmade pottery and throwing , and the ladies were lovely and helpful! giving it 4 star as the timings were a little off, only had about 25 minutes on the throwing whereas the first group had about 40+ minutes. Look forward to collecting my pieces :)

review
Rebecca - October 17th
The teachers are so friendly and welcoming at this workshop. It’s fantastic for beginners to get a feel for the different pottery styles! It is quite hard to find, definitely look for Weir Road on the map as there are two L&R scaffolding’s on google in the area.
review
Fiona - October 17th
This was a great introduction to Pottery. I made 2 pots by moulding the clay around moulds and 1 pot on the wheel. The instruction was detailed but easy to understand and the teacher was onhand to help while I was making my pots. The teachers had real passion and enthusiasm for their work and it made it a fun experience.

Julie - October 10th
I took my 8 year old son along to a Pottery taster session last night and we both had a wonderful time! The instructors, the space, the equipment and the tuition were all top notch and it was great to finally be able to 'throw' pottery using a wheel...most places don't seem to have that equipment. I really recommend this experience for young and old as it is was fun andwe made some lovely pottery that we'll actually be able to use as it looks so great! Thanks! Julie

review
Doris - August 22nd
It was a relaxing and fun session. I'm so glad this was gifted to me as a bday present. The session was well organised and the teachers were very patient and quick to come to your aid if they see you struggling. We were able to try a couple of pottery techniques in one session, throwing and molding which was a great use of time. The only think I would say is I wish we had more time on the throwing wheel because it was so much fun. Will definitely be signing up for the glazing session.

Nice place, nice people. But I was hoping to spend much more time at the wheel. Only about 15 minutes was spent on the wheel.
review
Shazana - August 2nd
It was a great class, and I got to make 4 coasters, a bowl and a pot on the wheel throwing. Overal a fun, therapeautic clas with knowledgable teachers. Would recommend highly - I have even booked my glazing class too.
review
Esme Homer - July 29th
the working space had a very relaxed, easy atmosphere and I felt free to be creative whilst also receiving helpful advice from the teachers. the class offered a wide array of skills to learn that gave me the opportunity to expand my ability and develop better technique. Throwing on the wheel was the highlight of the session for me, however, it was more restricting in terms of creativity, as it demands more confidence, which comes with practice. overall it was a very enjoyable experience, would recommend to all ages. it left me wanting more and I am excited to return and glaze my pots and see how they turned out.

review
Aneela - July 11th
The session was incredible, I learned a lot in the short time we had and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I will definitely be back for more classes. My only feedback is it would have been nice if the teacher was a bit more encouraging and engaging with the students e.g. going around and checking work and offering help, ideas etc. As I would’ve liked to take advantage of her experience and creativity a bit more. Her explanations and showing of techniques in the beginning was very informative and helpful however. Overall a lovely and unique way to spend an evening.

Great class, Workshop 305 was a great place to go and get an introduction into pottery.

Monty Blackhurst - April 24th
Venue was perfect, plenty of space & equipment, a fourth wheel would of meant more time to experiment. Both teachers were very patient & helped without being condescending.We learnt how to create & had fun .only criticism is a schedule for a shared amount of time on the wheel would be a good idea.
review
Louise - April 24th
Having never made pottery before we didn’t know what to expect, the team in Wimbledon made us all very welcome and explained what we could do , taking the time to help /guide us with our pieces. Would of liked more time to use the wheel , but it just means we will have to go back .

review
Afra Cory - March 15th
I learnt how to throw on the wheel which was great fun and also how to mould the clay into any shape! The teachers were AMAZING. Caroline (I think!) was so encouraging on the wheel and explained it in a way which made sense and the Irish lady (I'm not even going to attempt to spell her name) was excellent at showing how to use the moulds and make whatever shapes we wanted. She was also hilarious! The venue was lovely and spacious and loved all of the work that was displayed around the place, including the giant whale!

Absolutely loved the course, I’ve always wanted to try a pottery class so was delighted when I was given a gift voucher for Christmas and I wasn’t disappointed. The teachers are extremely helpful and very patience. Not only do you get the opportunity to create your own clay masterpieces you get to have a go on the pottery wheel, which I found very therapeutic. I can’t wait to go back and glaze my pieces. Thank you.

The venue was wonderfully laid out displaying art for sale made by others who attend the venue. Easy parking. The teachers were lovely; patient and knowledgeable and made us feel welcomed. It was a birthday gift to me and we learnt a number of things during our two hour lesson including using the potters wheel. We enjoyed ourselves so much we booked onto the glazing class to decorate what we made. I highly recommend this course.

Gabrielle Hedley - February 26th
I had a great time at this workshop! I was late arriving as I'd gotten a little lost on the way. I called up and spoke to Kerry, who was really lovely and offered to come and pick me up. I was a bit nervous at first as the class had already started but Saoirse made me feel very welcome and started filling me in on what I'd missed. I made 3 pieces and had a go at throwing clay on the wheel, which as great fun! It was such a fun evening, I can't wait to go back a do a glazing session. I would thoroughly recommend this place for anyone who likes to get creative and fancies trying out pottery! I will be recommending it to friends!

We learned how to hand make pottery, and throw a bowl! The teachers were all super friendly and helpful very approachable, and we had a great laugh. The venue was easy to get to, had lots of parking and the workshop was fully equipped anything we needed.

In this pottery taster session we learnt how to prepare the clay before working with it. We also learnt about the differnt techniques involved in modelling and using the wheel. The teachers were very helpful and gave hands on support were needed. The venue was a decent sized space and had plenty of tools and equipment for all the students in the class. I had a great time and look forwards to the glazing class

We came to the Pottery session on Weds 13 February and had a great time - and were even pleased with some of the pots we made! :) It was great fun, the teachers were really helpful and friendly, and we particularly enjoyed the opportunity to have a go on the wheel. Thank you!

Lovely friendly staff, very welcoming. The venue was easy to find and very interesting to look around all the good work they do there. I bought the taster session as a present for my partner and wasn't expecting to enjoy it so much myself, we are now going to book the next session to glaze the bits we made on the evening.

Our pottery taster workshop was so much fun, and the ladies taking the class were so lovely and helpful. We learnt so much more than what I was expecting. The teachers really took such an interest in everyone's work and gave you hints and tips on how to make things better :D

The Pottery Taster Session was brilliant, my girlfriend and I had a great time! The people running it were lovely, funny and helpful. It was exciting to learn a new skill, and a good laugh when it didn't go quite to plan on the wheel. We can't wait to come back and glaze our creations :)

Thanks for a fantastic session trying pottery for the first time. Very knowledgeable teachers helped me with my very own bowl and tea light holders. Will be booking the glazing session and in the near future will sign up to a longer course to really learn the intricacies of pottery, especially the wheel.

Really enjoyed the session - it felt like a nice balance of being able to try different things with the clay, plus between being supported by the staff and left to your own devices.

Really loved this session. The workshop is calming and lots of fun stuff to look at around the walls. Working in a corporate office but being quite arty at heart, I really loved being here for a few hours. It is so calm, after the running around I do daily in my job! Very much considering doing a full course as I enjoyed it so much The girls at the workshop are all very nice and know their stuff. Great teachers, and very patient. Went through techniques such as: - pottery on the wheel - hand building with different techniques - using moulds - using stamps to pattern the clay I wll be returning to Glaze, very soon - and discuss full courses. Thanks team, Sam -

Lovely and engaging team. Loved the experience and I’m planing to go back for more fun! I recommend to book the glazing class together as they are both great experiences!
review
Rebecca - January 25th
I attended a introduction to pottery workshop just before Christmas. It was a lot fun. The class size was small and intimate which meant plenty of time to get on the wheel and moulding. We were taught some great techniques for both the wheel and moulding. The teachers were patient, friendly, made the class and even let us rest our arms with a midway tea and biscuit break

I bought this workshop as a birthday gift for my mother. She didn’t think she would be any good at it and therefore was very apprehensive about the session. She was pleasently surprised and we both enjoyed everything from start to finish. Our tutor Emily was so patient and helpful. Needless to say we will be back for more.

The mosaic taster was so interesting that I shall be joining hopefully the last three weeks of the course. There are many interesting projects to begin and there are piles of mosaics and tiles to make your imagination go wild! Having already had a taster session for Pottery I was able to find my fired work and get it glazed. What a friendly place to have a go and the tutors are very helpful.

Another great session where we did the glazing of our small pots from the first session. It would have been even better if we had been given a few samples beforehand as example to get some ideas on different ways how to glaze. Overall, really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and it was real fun! Will be signing up for the pottery course!

Absolutely brilliant time with obby. Myself and my wife decided to try out some pottery and it was fantastic, really got stuck in, got to try wheel throwing and even managed to do some moulds. Really impressed and happy to go again any time.

Viktoriya - November 20th
Very creative , inspiring and relaxed atmosphere, friendly people.The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because of the location-industrial zone, it was a bit scary in the darkness to get there.And one tip-have an idea what do you want to create, at least kind of idea. After all WORTH IT!
