Things to remember

Working with clay can be very messy, so it is worth bearing this in mind when deciding what to wear.

Excellent tuition - a really great experience, thank you We took a 2 hour private class for me and mum, mix of wheel and hand building. Tessa is a first class teacher and also very calm, patient and kind. We learnt so much and were much more productive than I expected in such a short time. Thank you

Super fun activity and great experience, just wished I had more time but would definitely recommend to friends and family!
Kay Buchan - 5 February 2022
We had the most wonderful time during our 2 hour private taster class. We learned so much on the wheel and unleashing our creativity in the hand building hour. Our teacher was fantastic - so skilled and so encouraging. I would absolutely recommend for everyone to lose themselves for two hours in sheer joy.

Your Teacher

Sak Beh Studio Pottery was founded by Tessa Robinson, who lives and works in London. Her idea was to create a comfortable, homey place to work and be creative. Situated in a very busy and central location, just off Stoke Newington High Street, the studio is a drop of calm in a very fast moving world.

Tessa trained in Fine Art, specialising in sculpture (modelling in clay). On completion of a three year Post Graduate Course at the Royal Academy of Arts, Tessa set up a studio in Hackney. The transition from sculptor to potter came many years later whilst…

The taster session was great, got a good feel of what I wanted to achieve. The studio is gorgeous
Janice - 8 September 2020

We ended up being alone in the class, we loved it and we definitely got the pottery bug :)
Alex - 8 July 2019
Fantastic afternoon doing something completely different. Teachers were great and we achieved a lot in the time available Thank you
Anne - 3 July 2019
Amazing course and well worth it even if you have no artistic bone in your body. Our teacher was patient, passionate and gave very comprehensive instructions and demonstrations. We were shown the entire process from preparing the clay to throwing a useful mug/vase/bowl (or two!) and it was so much fun and super rewarding to learn a new skill. Highly recommend!

Thoroughly enjoyable taster class. As someone who is a complete novice at pottery throwing I’m now really keen to develop the skill.
Inole - 29 June 2019
Great friendly class, lovely environment. Would’ve preferred to spend more time on the wheel as we were rushed and had to clean afterwards. Otherwise lovely set up.
Amy - 25 June 2019
I bought this as a gift for my friend and she loved it! She thought the space was really inviting, the teacher engaging and informative. She liked the balance of pinching and throwing techniques. She could've said all of this purely to make me think she enjoyed her gift, but she's not one for lying and kept me updated with pictures.
Anna - 23 June 2019
Really great pottery class especially for the price! Beautiful little studio as well.
Sajni - 23 June 2019
Had a really great class - small size and very friendly teachers. Lovely studio!
Fangyi - 23 June 2019
Really enjoyable course in a beautiful studio. Very good introduction for beginners as you get to do both the throwing and the pinch pot, and you get something to take away at the end. Well supported and would recommend!
Neeraj - 11 June 2019
Really well taught session and good amount of time on both the throwing and hand moulding. Could easily have spent another hour there!
Nicholas - 25 May 2019
Great space and teachers. It'd be nice to have more time to make mistakes and learn on the wheel and with hand crafting, but as an introductory taster it was perfect. A bit crowded, and a bit of a scramble during the clean up, but still really worthwhile. Left me wanting to do more more more! Can't wait to pick up our finished pieces :-D i'd do another here for sure
Emily - 19 May 2019
Such good value for money and a seriously enjoyable class with really nice teachers!
Hannah - 19 May 2019
Had a good time but felt quite rucmshed doing both throwing and hand building in the short time. Would have preferred to work for the whole time on just one of the activities and really get a feel for it. Also collection times for picking up work are not particularly flexible and difficult for someone working full time in another area.
Valentina - 4 April 2019
I had an amazing and very special experience at the taster class in this studio. Tessa is a very generous and kind person, organised and clear on her instructions. I was able to make my first pot with a lid and some really unique details. I then spent the rest of the workshop painting a beautiful bowl that she had prepared for all students. I will certainly go back regularly and sign up to the full course. I highly recommend this place/
