What you will do
2 hour class
This class is for 2 people, so is a great gift or experience to share with a friend/relative/loved one!
In this class you and a friend/relative/loved one will be taught by Candy in her private pottery studio!
To begin with, you will be introduced to the clay, learn a bit about its properties and the making process.
Candy will then demonstrate how to use the potters wheel. Then, one at a time, you will be guided through making your own pot on the wheel, with help every step of the way. You can watch and encourage each other through the good AND the bad! Don’t worry about getting it right the first time, it’s a learning process.
Candy is an experienced teacher to all levels, and will ensure that each person leaves having made at least one piece that they’re happy with (often, people leave with 2 or more!).
Once you’ve made your piece on the wheel, there are paints and tools to decorate with, so you finish with a piece that’s truly unique!
This class is an introduction to throwing where you will learn the basics and get a grip of the skill, so perfect for those who have never tried pottery before and want to get a feel for it.
Your finished items will be fired and glazed be Candy, ready for collection 4 weeks later.

About your host, Candy's Ceramics
Candy’s pottery classes are taught within the eclectic Nightingales Emporium, located just opposite Hornsey station.
After finishing her degree in Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins, Candy was keen to pass on her learnt skills to others. Around teaching, Candy also makes her own work which is focused on the female form and explores representing this in the medium of clay.
Candy has worked with a wide range of students from young children, people with learning disabilities, mature students and people living with dementia. Candy’s teaching style is tailored to the individuals needs, in a relaxed and friendly environment.
With both group sessions and one to one sessions available, you are sure to find a class to suit you.
Parties and workshops available, please contact if you have any inquiries!
Please wear clothing and shoes you don’t mind getting a bit dirty (clay will come out in the wash). Be aware that you will be asked to take all bracelets, watches and rings off before the start of the lesson. The pottery studio is up a (sturdy) wooden ladder so, if you are unable to walk up stairs please get in contact and we will do what we can to accommodate your needs. The studio is inside Nightingales Emporium which is right opposite Hornsey train station. Parking is also available on the street.
