Your Teacher

Odile studied chemistry, but fell in love with pottery after trying some evening classes in Farnham. After learning to throw and run a studio by working with other artists, she decided to set up her own space in West London which she runs with her partner Kieran.

Odile now works full time as a potter and pottery teacher. She's invented many of the tools, teaching aids and techniques they use at the studio and is constantly experimenting with new ideas and processes. . She also likes cooking and gardening because she can make the dishes...

Great communication leading up to the lockdown, we were able to continue due to the education status of Odile's courses - social distancing and masks and all the necessary precautions have helped us feel comofrtable and the course content and pace is great for beginners - recommended and so glad we've got a course to keep us occupied!

The course had to be suspended after four weeks due to lockdown, but I enjoyed each class that I attended. Odile is a wonderful teacher, giving clear explanations and demonstrations. She is also very organized and always has all the material and tools ready for her students. I like the small class size. The studio itself is lovely, open and bright. I highly recommend the course to anyone wanting to give pottery a try.

Odile is a fantastic teacher, taking you through all methods of working with clay and glazes. The studio is large, fully equipped and very well situated. I'll definitely be booking another course with Odile and would highly recommend!

I signed up for the beginner’s course after a fun experience at the one-day wheel workshop with Odile. The class size was cosy and we were taught a variety of techniques - really enjoyed myself and hope to be able to do more pottery with Odile in the future!
Savith - February 14th
Odile is a great instructor who explained the various processes of ceramics very clearly. Spending time with the whole group and individuals also. Having been to another beginners workshop somewhere else, I personally found the structure of this 5 weeks much better suited for beginners. We look forward to attending more workshops!
Guillemette - February 14th
The course was actually spread over five weeks. Odile taught us the basics of pottery. It was my first pottery course ever but I now definitely feel like going further. Odile shows rather quickly how to do things so you have to be focused to listen but then it gives us a lot of time for creativity and make Progress With the technique. The 3 hour slot works very well. As Odile says it is truly like a therapy !
Margot - November 7th
Great course, Odile is a great teacher and gives the freedom to try many different techniques week after week. It is so great to see how your work evolves as it goes through the different stages and very rewarding to bring it home with you! Highly recommend
Cheyenne - November 5th
We had a great time. The course was fun to do, the teacher was really good at explaining everything to us. We made and painted more items than we thought we would, Items that I'll be very happy to use in my house. They were also very understanding of my disability. I'd give them 5 stars all day long.

I was really happy to compete this course. Studio is brilliant, very bright and clean, very well equipped. They have any tool you could possibly need. I was very pleased with structured and detailed information Odile gave us. She introduced to the group basic technics of making pottery. Her guidance was very kind and cheerful. She is very experienced and knowledgeable potter. I've decided to continue with pottery making after this course.
