2 hour class

Daytime

This is the perfect class for beginners who want to learn how to throw on a pottery wheel. The class is run by Suzan, a professional pottery artist.

Firstly Suzan will give you an introduction to the materials and the processes of wheel throwing. This will be followed by a quick demonstration so you can see exactly how the craft is preformed. As the class is a maximum of two people Suzan can then assist you one-to-one on the wheel making sure you are using the correct technique

By the end of the class you will have created a number of pots. You will be able to choose a piece that you have thrown during the class and choose one of the glazes available. Suzan will finish the pot by adding the glaze after the workshop is finished, ready for you to come and collect it at a later date.

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.

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. :)

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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 :)

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!

About your host, Suzan Art Pottery

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.
