Nam was a fantastic teacher and really friendly. We got 3 pots thrown in the session all with varying levels of help from Nam. Me and my partner decided to sign up for more there and then.

A really fun and stretching workshop to learn the basics of pottery in a short space of time. It was great to watch a demo and then take it on step by step ourselves. It would be really interesting to hear more about Nam's work and his unique creations. Directions to the studio were needed - most of the class found it very difficult to get to!

Due to some people cancelling we pretty much had a masterclass session with Nam and it was so so great. Compared to the taster class we had elsewhere a year ago it was night and day. Can't wait to pick up our stuff soon!

Highly recommend this class! Nam is an excellent teacher, helps you to understand exactly what is going on no matter how fast/slow you are. Classes are a good size and you get your hands dirty from the very beginning. If you're looking for a pottery class, do this one, you won't regret it!

Nam is an awesome teacher. Indepently from what level you are on, he'll make you feel comfortable and inspire you for some pottery masterpieces - the perfect balance of your design freedom and careful instruction. With all that said, I feel honoured that I got to take a lesson from such an amazing artist, his work is astonishing! Definitely will come back again when I'm in London next time. Had best time ever and left feeling like I'm ready for the next level ceremics:)

Loved this class! Very informative and helpful - we had a great time. Actually got to create some pieces that we liked. Would 100% go back!

It was brilliant! We really did enjoy ourselves and it was all clearly explained (we were a bit impatient and wanted to get on with it) but we were gently reminded we needed to know what to do first! I would highly recommend this workshop - especially for beginners.

Nam Tran & Susie were fun patient and fantastic teachers, they make you love pottery and help you when you struggle. I would recommend this to anyone! We did an hour of coiling and an hour of wheel throwing! Absolutely loved it. Its a messy activity so dont wear new clothes and wear trousers as legs wide open when throwing!!!
