I had such a good time learning to use the wheel and the skills I observed with throwing, shaping etc were perfect. My very first attempt on the pottery wheel and I made 4 small pots.

I had a great couple of hours with Suzan, learning how to use the wheel and throw a few 'unique' creations...! It's an enormously satisfying activity, Suzan is a really encouraging tutor and guides you through each process, helping you develop your skills with each throw. Highly recommended.

Suzan fell in love with clay in her early teens in Turkey, but didn't have the chance to get her hands dirty until after she came to London and enrolled to a part time course in 2004. After finishing her BTEC certification classes in Kensington and Chelsea college Suzan practiced her pottery in a studio share in Kilburn .

In 2017 Suzan finally opened her own studio in Plaistow where she designs and creates all of her work which is inspired from her mixed family background, and travels.

Great class and great teacher. Really enjoyed the experience, would recommend to others. Thanks Suzan x
review
Aedryan - January 29th
Suzan is very welcoming and a great instructor. You get multiple goes at making something and so should end the session with at least one thing to keep. Suzan will then fire and glaze your creation for you. It's a really fun session. There is 2 hour paid parking on the road outside. Otherwise Queen's Market has paid parking and is about 10 - 15 minutes walk away.
review
Sophie - January 28th
Suzan is a great teacher and I had an absolutely great time, having never used a wheel before I left having made 3 pots! I'll definitely be pursuing pottery further after this brilliant introduction. Thank you Suzan!
review
Daniel-Ernest - January 21st
Suzan is a great teacher and the class was really fun. We were a pair of pottery novices and Suzan taught us the basics really well. She was very approachable and made the time fly by! We loved watching a master at work showing us how to actually make a bowl and we loved the freedom to experiment and make our own mistakes. We cannot wait to pick up our creations. Would thoroughly recommend Suzan and her studio to anyone!
review
Andy - January 13th
Me and my girlfriend were both new to pottery and we really couldn't have asked for a better introduction. Suzan made the experience so enjoyable, we would thoroughly recommend this workshop to anyone looking to give pottery a go!
review
Deborah - January 11th
My partner Sue and I attended Suzan’s Beginners Pottery Wheel Class today and we had such a great time. It really was so much fun and, much to our delight and surprise, we produced some bowls that we are very proud of. Suzan is an excellent teacher. She explained and demonstrated the techniques so clearly and with such patience. She truly made the class a great experience and we can thoroughly recommend it. In fact, we are planning to book more sessions with Suzan.
review
Harry - October 28th
The class was very relaxed and Suzan is very friendly and informed. Having just two people means you really get the attention you need when doing this for the first time and you come away feeling like you've learnt a lot. The small cost to get extra pieces glazed and fired was an added bonus! Definitely recommend.

Suzan’s a super friendly lady and great teacher. Her classes are small (usually just 1 or 2 students I believe) so you’ll get a lot of one on one guidance when it’s your turn to take the wheel after an explanation/demonstration of the basic techniques. I was given plenty of time and materials to keep practising, and after a few wobbly attempts I ended the class actually making a pretty respectable looking pot for a total beginner! My pot will be glazed and fired and ready to collect in a few weeks time. I thoroughly enjoyed my class with Suzan in her lovely studio in East London, and hope to return for more soon!

Jaspreet - July 8th
First of all I'd like to mention that my partner and I had never worked with a pottery wheel before, and this was the perfect workshop for a complete beginner! I bought this as a birthday gift for my partner and I am so pleased that I did as we both had an amazing time! The private setup was excellent as it allowed us both to get the attention and one-on-one guidance that we needed. Suzan is very friendly and super talented, myself and my partner felt at complete ease learning from her. Suzan was so lovely and encouraging as a teacher and gave us both step-by-step guidance on how to work the clay & pottery wheel. The class only included one item to take away but Suzan was kind enough to let us take home as many of our creations as we liked for just a pound (dependent on size) for each piece, amazing value! Overall, an amazing class with the kindest teacher - would highly recommend :)

Paul - July 3rd
We thoroughly enjoyed our beginners pottery wheel class with Suzan. I booked this as a gift for my partner’s Birthday and really glad I did. As complete novices, Suzan was patient and very knowledgeable, showing us little tricks and tips along the way. She really helped us get to grips with the basics and made it fun during the process. Really looking forward to doing it again. Thanks again Suzan!

What an amazing session! Susan was a great teacher, showing me exactly what to do and giving me plenty of time to enjoy it and have a play. I'm very excited about picking up my finished peices soon!
review
Anna - February 3rd
A truly wonderful class! Thank you Suzan for the most fun and productive 2 hours. Suzan takes her time with each student and makes it such a relaxed and enriching learning experience, where we were encouraged to be creative and we had multiple goes on the wheel. My friend and I left feeling so happy with the experience and with our pottery creations!
review
Marco - January 30th
It was amazing! Suzan is great! She explained everything we needed to know, making it fun and very instructive. We had never tried pottery and managed to make several bowls! Very recommended!
review
Sujata Ravi & Varun Mathur - January 20th
We learnt the basics of throwing pots, and the fundamentals of a using the potters wheel. Suzan was a lovely teacher, and she gave us an amazing introduction to pottery. My husband gifted me the experience as a birthday present, and I couldn’t have imagined a better way to spend my birthday! Suzan first demonstrated the basics to us, and then let us experiment independently. She let us explore the technique and offered help and guidance throughout. We will definitely go back to Suzan for more classes when our schedules allow. Thanks a lot, Suzan! And so glad to come across your studio on Obby!

Angela - November 30th
I had a great time with Suzan yesterday. She was very welcoming, gave a good demonstration and then let me get started. Suzan was on hand to remind me of each step and to guide me in the process. And there was no skimping on the clay available. I was thrilled with the results and will do more.

I thoroughly enjoyed the beginners pottery class with Suzan. A very relaxed environment with clear instruction on how to use the wheel. As the group is small there is plenty of 1:1 support and direction. Definitely booking up some lessons. :)

Suzan was great. I did a hand building class where we made some gorgeous bowls. Great fun and great tutoring from Suzan.

I'd never worked with a pottery wheel before, and this was an excellent workshop for a complete beginner - easy-going, comfortable and reassuring. Suzan is a lovely, encouraging teacher who gave me enough step-by-step guidance to make a confident start, but also allowed plenty of scope to explore and just play around with a new material. Firing and glazing a finished piece (to be collected later) was included in the price, but she was happy to fire and glaze two more pieces I produced for a nominal cost contribution, so I ended up with three proper, handmade bowls I am really happy to have and use! The venue was easy to reach, just a short walk from Upton Park tube.
