I liked the studio a lot, the instructor was polite and knowledgeable and the groups were of good size. The pace of the class was good for beginners. The only thing that could be better was the quality of the recycled clay as it was gritty and I injured my hands.

This was a great class. The teacher Davide gave clear instructions at the perfect pace. He encouraged calm and focus which led everyone to make really quick progress. The two assistants were incredibly helpful and made the process go smoothly. We threw three pots in two hours, which felt like a lot of progress having never used a wheel before. It was so good to be making things again - a brilliant, open and airy studio to get creative in during the pandemic.

Fantastic session! Actually finished the class with 2 decently shaped bowls which was more than I was expecting. We started off with a detailed tutorial by Nam which included various techniques . Nam and Susie were very helpful & always there to lend a hand if anything did go wrong. A huge bonus is the impressive studio which definitely gave a warm and relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommend :)

Absolutely wonderful experience! I booked this session over a year ago but delayed it due to covid. The ceramics tutor was super friendly and really helpful, and the studio was spacious, clean and beautifully presented. Location was a lot easier to get to than I initially thought from the map. The session was very relaxed and enjoyable and definitely worth the wait!

We had such a brilliant time at Cernamic. It's a beautiful space and Nam was a welcoming, fun and helpful teacher - had such an enjoyable time learning how to throw on the wheel! Nam also went above and beyond to make it a special birthday for my friend - thank you!

A really great taster workshop for using the pottery wheel - and a bonus that we left with something resembling a bowl! Nam is a brilliant teacher, and the studio is a lovely space to learn in. Would highly recommend and can't wait to receive our pieces back from the kiln!

This was really fun, even for someone as uncoordinated as I am! Nam is a great tutor, very relaxed and happy to jump in and help if you're getting stuck or to give you room to experiment in at your own pace. Only thing to note is that, unlike other reviews, we only focused on the wheel techniques & not hand crafting but this was fine as it felt like the time flew by anyway.

Such an amazing experience! My partner and I attended the Sat class where the team were very helpful taking the time to explain/help with creations and allowing enough time to experiment. The studio was very spacious and homely and we were supplied with more than enough clay, we had a really fun time I would throughly recommend! Catrina.
Jessika
10 May
The class was well-paced with clear instruction. We created multiple small projects, learning at our own pace to a degree and able to either leave our work behind or pay a small price to purchase our works after having them fired in the kiln. Definitely recommend.

This was a great taster workshop. We had a reasonable amount of time using both hand methods and spin wheel methods. The studio is wonderful and very open spaced. The workshop itself was structured but relaxed allowing me to spend quality time making my pota. Nam is very patient and knowledgeable on pottery making and I left the workshop with three wonderfully made pots. Recommending to all my friends!

Nam’s classes are the best! He is a fantastic teacher and you leave not only with beautiful bowls, vases etc. but with a new skill. A bonus is that the studio is absolutely beautiful and a lovely space to work in. I’d definitely recommend his class - and it’s a great way to make some Christmas presents!

Christine
2 Nov
I really loved my first pottery experience which was the 3 hour pottery taster session in Cernamics. Half the session was spent handbuilding with Rachel and the other half throwing on the wheel with Christina. We had 5 in the class and we all still had enough individual attention to really develop our skills! The instructors were so creative, helpful and patient, and I was really pleased with how much I improved and came away with some lovely personal pieces for a small extra cost (to fire and glaze them). Would definitely recommend to a friend and I will go again!
Sedayah
1 Nov
This was an amazing workshop! Nam is super helpful and attentive and really lets you play around and be experimental with the clay. Great for beginners who just want to have a bit of fun and whilst also learning the basic techniques of wheel throwing. I could not recommend this class enough! Will definitely be returning, thanks Nam!! :)
Hui
26 Oct
Nam was so attentive! He has wonderful knowledge on pottery and a great collection of his own works on show at the studio. Our class was 3 hrs in total, we had an introduction to hand coiling and then half the time on the pottery wheel. We left feeling very happy with our efforts.
Esra

I love this place! And will definitely be back for the course 🥰 Teacher is very friendly and has got enthusiasm and passion to teach .. I would recommend everyone who would like to give it a go and learn something new..
Yokey
24 Oct
Nam was very patient and enthusiastic when teaching us in the class, we covered coiling, slabbing and wheel throwing. The space is perfect for trying out first hand a few techniques on pottery making (all with safe social distancing). Time just flew and actually have 3 pieces that I’m proud of from the class. Will definitely return to try some of their other classes

Really enjoyed the workshop. Nam is a great teacher and I felt we learnt a lot in just a few hours. It was a nice relaxed atmosphere too and a fantastic spacious studio. Would definitely like to go back for another class in the future.
Rosalie
18 Oct
Nam is a really great and hands on teacher! Pottery is much more difficult than I remembered and his techniques and instructions really made it easier to get lovely products at the end. The studio space is beautiful and open, and has a huge amount of pottery to inspire you. I’ll be booking another class ASAP :)
Karolina
17 Oct
Very nice studio. Good workshop for beginners. Fairly small group. You can take your stuff home after the glaze is done. Maybe a little bit of a generic explanation how to do the certain shapes would be good instead of showing only to certain people after they requested specifically.
Kate
14 Oct
The taster workshop was great. I'd never tried pottery before but Nam explained the techniques really well and helped out when we needed it. It was a really fun and relaxed atmosphere and I came away with two little pieces that I love!

Nathalie
27 Sep
Beautiful space, felt quite safe in small group being taught. Very informative and am considering taking more classes here. Would have preferred it if the instructor kept his mask on the entire time. I understand it's difficult to speak / teach with the mask on but we all have to deal with this, there's no excuse considering the current climate.

Nam was a great teacher and it was a good small sized class. It's the right amount of time on the wheel too. Made even better by the pups we could say hi to after 😊
Bella

Really fun workshop! Great teacher too - Nam showed us the basics of throwing and stepped us up to shaping our own pieces independently, with plenty of practice and guidance where needed. Definitely going back! Thanks

12 Mar
This was a fab taster workshop! You get split into two groups with the opportunity to try the wheel and by hand and it was great to give both a go, and work in small enough teams that you can always be helped out and actually learn some technique! I can't recommend strongly enough!!!
Cameron
9 Mar
Nam was a fantastic teacher and really friendly. We got 3 pots thrown in the session all with varying levels of help from Nam. Me and my partner decided to sign up for more there and then.

A really fun and stretching workshop to learn the basics of pottery in a short space of time. It was great to watch a demo and then take it on step by step ourselves. It would be really interesting to hear more about Nam's work and his unique creations. Directions to the studio were needed - most of the class found it very difficult to get to!
Freddie

Great teacher and gave us extra time !
Kate

Could not recommend this more!! Such a fun morning- learning different pottery techniques and making 4 lovely pots. The teachers were so knowledgable, helpful and friendly and even brought in biscuits for the class. 10/10 thank you!!

Amazing class, the right pace for everyone, clear instructions, so much covered in such a short space. Excellent teachers kept it light and fun yet still managed to learn a lot. Really great value and very inspiring.
Dmitrij
27 Jan
Due to some people cancelling we pretty much had a masterclass session with Nam and it was so so great. Compared to the taster class we had elsewhere a year ago it was night and day. Can't wait to pick up our stuff soon!

Really enjoyable class - Nam was a great instructor and it was fun to try something new!
Janak

Highly recommend this class! Nam is an excellent teacher, helps you to understand exactly what is going on no matter how fast/slow you are. Classes are a good size and you get your hands dirty from the very beginning. If you're looking for a pottery class, do this one, you won't regret it!
Maria
6 Jan
Nam is an awesome teacher. Indepently from what level you are on, he'll make you feel comfortable and inspire you for some pottery masterpieces - the perfect balance of your design freedom and careful instruction. With all that said, I feel honoured that I got to take a lesson from such an amazing artist, his work is astonishing! Definitely will come back again when I'm in London next time. Had best time ever and left feeling like I'm ready for the next level ceremics:)
Matthew
21 Dec
A wonderful experience! Nam is patient, knowledgable and really passionate. We came away knowing far more than when going in, with a couple of great pots and bowls too, which wouldn’t look as they do without great guidance. Thank you and hope to visit again one day!
Fiona
26 Nov
For anyone wanting to try pottery then this class is a must...and for anyone who isn't thinking of a pottery class, go anyway! Excellent guidance and support was offered throughout the entire session, which was relaxing, fun and inspiring! You'll learn different types of pottery making and are given ample time to throw your creations! Would absolutely recommend in giving this a try.
Dhara
25 Nov
Loved this class! Very informative and helpful - we had a great time. Actually got to create some pieces that we liked. Would 100% go back!
Nicola
9 Nov
Fantastic workshop. We were completely new to pottery and we had so much fun. You get to try throwing some pottery on the wheel and also have a go at hand making some yourself. You learn so much in 3 hours. Highly recommend.
Kristina
8 Nov
Creative and fun activity. Process involves burning pots in an open fire which adds a lot of magic to the experience.
Lynne
28 Aug
It was brilliant! We really did enjoy ourselves and it was all clearly explained (we were a bit impatient and wanted to get on with it) but we were gently reminded we needed to know what to do first! I would highly recommend this workshop - especially for beginners.
Jen
10 Aug
Wow, what an incredible morning we had Raku glazing, we learnt so much about this super fun process from our fantastic teacher Nam and his team. I am now addicted, I want to go back time and time again- thank you so much 😊
Janet
8 Aug
Nam and Suzie were very welcoming and knowledgable and the studio had a wide range of Amaco Raku glazes for us to experiment with.
Ben Mackrow
4 Aug
Really enjoyed the class and Nam was a great teacher. Nice atmosphere with the group and relaxed environment. Would have liked slightly more time "throwing" on the wheel to get a better grasp of the technique, but the time was split 50/50 with trying the "coiling" method at the table.
Alex
22 Jul
Great venue, excellent teaching! Very interesting introduction and super fun!
Sabrina
22 Jul
Great lesson in wheel throwing and coling from Nam and Susi. They explained everything well and it was throroughly enjoyable class. Would definitely recommend
Youara Ahmed
21 Jul
Yes Nam and Suzie were both extremely helpful and useful. I went for my birthday with 6 of my other friends so were a big group all trying out pottery for the first time and they walked us through it step by step very patiently. We arrived a few minutes late but they let us hang around at the end to make up for the lost time and finish up our pieces till we were happy with them and kindly took many group photos of us! Only feedback point is to include a map with directions for how to get to the biscuit factory because google maps gives a completely different location and 100 Clements road building F and entrance isn’t very obvious. I’ll definitely be back again and sign up to be a member!
Penny
21 Jul
I got my first taste of pottery in this 2-hour class. The teachers were really patient and helpful. The class size was small enough for everyone to get attention and the help needed. I really enjoyed the class! The venue is a bit hard to find, but they were responsive on the phone to help navigate. Definitely go early to find the venue. The venue itself was nice, have everything we need.
Andrea
21 Jul
Nam Tran & Susie were fun patient and fantastic teachers, they make you love pottery and help you when you struggle. I would recommend this to anyone! We did an hour of coiling and an hour of wheel throwing! Absolutely loved it. Its a messy activity so dont wear new clothes and wear trousers as legs wide open when throwing!!!

Amazing experience, Cernamic hosts were super helpful and friendly! This taster workshop is a great way for beginners to get an insight into pottery. All-round positive experience, highly recommend!

A very fun and informative pottery workshop! Nam is also very knowledgeable and helpful. Such a great experience and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to try out pottery :)
Emma
7 Jun
I booked this as a present for my partner for his birthday as he has been considering completing a pottery course and was not sure if he would like it. We had a really enjoyable time and had an equal chance at using the wheel and hand building, both of which were great fun and we learnt a lot. The group was small (8) which meant we all got help from the instructor and could all work at the same time. We definitely would book to come back again!
Lore

Wish the class was a little longer. But overall it was cool to learn the different techniques used in ceramics

The class was really close to the station which is great when you don’t know the area very well. Detailed demos and advise given throughout, all questioned answered. Would definitely recommend for a first timer or someone wanting to bring friends to try something new.

Great workshop, Nam was super knowledgeable and friendly, really laid back chilled work shop, would definitely recommend.
Charlotte
20 May
Brilliant workshop in a very cool space in Bermondsey (if a little difficult to find!). The session is split into 2 sections - one part on the wheel, one part on the table - with the wheel being good fun but tricky and the table part meaning you'll at least go home with something! You can then leave whatever you make with them to be baked and pick up in a couple of weeks time, for a supplement of £3 per item. Fantastic to try out something different in a fun, relaxed space - and the time flew by.

17 Apr
Very enjoyable taster session. After an intro you get hands on making a coil pot, then another couple more on the wheel. Decided to take home all the creations, which you get fired and in a choice of colours.
Lucy
17 Apr
It was a fun experience! We had great fun and everyone enjoyed it! But I wish we had more time on the wheel part to practice.

Fantastic!!!!! Nam and Susy were fabulous. Excellent knowledge, fantastic resources, and very good managing skills. A WONDERFUL Experience.
Niki
9 Apr
The tuition was fantastic! Nam (the teacher) was brilliant and made it easy to understand and good fun. He tried to make it relaxing rather than stressful. Being a novice, I was a bit worried! I wish we had had more time on the wheel and less time doing the coil clay, but I understand that is part of pottery making! The time just flew by much too quickly. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Denisa

We really enjoyed the pottery workshop and the teaching was very good. We were taught how to use the wheel and the manual method to make various ornaments. All the staff were very friendly and they welcomed anyone at any skill level!
Katie
27 Mar
Great day out! Nam was an excellent teacher and made sure that we all left with something we were happy with, regardless of our incompetence. The facilities were good and we had plenty of clay to work with. He glazed them to a professional standard and we’re left with something that looks excellent! I’d definitely go again. 10/10 :)

We both absolutely loved this workshop and for two hours we got a lot fitted in! Our teacher was great, really knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour! Thanks so much!
Nicola

A really lovely introduction to pottery with the chance to make three items of ones imagination (and importantly ability). I would love to have heard more about the rationale for doing things, especially on the wheel, but the team really whetted my appetite to learn more and great to be able to trial whether I would like to pursue pottery further.
Carla
28 Jan
It was an amazing class. It is therapeutical, and the teacher is so good at explaining the techniques, very patient. I can't wait to get my bowl back. The only thing you need to be aware of: the location is tricky...
Kerala
25 Jan
Nam’s pottery workshop is a great introduction to working on the wheel, and using the coiling technique. He is a great teacher, with a hands on but relaxed approach, which is needed when getting started on the wheel. He was happy to let us be creative and make whatever we wanted. We’ll definitely be back for a drop in class now that we know the basics. Highly recommend.

Nishi

Took my sister for her birthday and she absolutely loved the class! The instructors were really friendly and informative, as well as ensuring we all left with something to be proud of! However I think better directions to building F would have been handy as we reached the class 20 minutes late after aimlessly wondering around looking for the hidden building. Can’t wait to book another class just for the pottery wheel!
Gabrielle
11 Nov
I loved it! Nam was a great teacher, the class was relaxing, and I was very happy with the pottery I made. Definitely recommend doing this class.

The teachers were very helpful, just wish we could've stayed on the wheel for a bit longer as 1 hour didn't feel quite enough (looking forward to taking more classes though).

I chose this as an experiential birhtday gift for a friend. We went together and had an absolute blast whilst learning something completely new. Who knew throwing could be SO therapeutic! Couldn't recommend enough.

It was a lot of fun. Surprised my boyfriend for his birthday and we both enjoyed the workshop. Time really flies in there and the two hours went by in the blink in the eye.

The workshop was fab - there was a lot of support to make sure we were on track and doing everything correctly as well as not wasting time and resource so we all came out with pottery we were proud of, even as first timers! Highly recommend :)

The teachers were great, helpful, chatty and very personable! The class itself was very interesting and you are taught two different styles of pottery making, and you’re encouraged to make whatever you would like to. A great class!

It was the perfect balance of learning new techniques quickly and being able to 'freestyle' it - the teachers were great and gave us a lot to play with! I will 100% go back and do this again - so much fun.

Really good teachers, very friendly atmosphere and great location. We learn't really quickly and it was incredibly satisfying how quickly we got to make something. Highly recommend it for beginners

Lovely laid back workshop where we were able to make anything we wanted with and without a wheel. I made three pots and chose to take two home which will be glazed in the colours I chose. very excited to pick them up. Would definitely do this workshop again and would love a longer class

This was one of the most fun class I took in a very long time! I had always wanted to learn the technical skills needed to create clay pots and the instructor did a fabulous job guiding us learn the skill! Definitely coming back here for more sessions!

Really enjoyed the part of the class on the pottery wheel. Good guidance given during the work and help was provided. Very attentive. Could do with a better location, difficult to find the place

Small class so we all got a little individual attention. There was a lot packed into the two hours. Very relaxed, very professional. Really inspired me to continue pottery. Highlight was being taught by Nam Tran himself. Such a cool guy. Planning to book a weekend of pottery in October. Would definitely recommend.

The class was much larger than anticipated (about 15+ people) so individual attention was less than I'd hoped. It was nice to have half the class split between hand building and throwing on the wheel, so that we could try both, and the instructor was very friendly. However, the class description made it seem like (at least one of) our works would be included in the price - but each piece that we made and wanted fired and glazed was an additional £2 on top of the workshop price.

A really good class, with excellent demonstrations. However, the class was very full, and I thought we would have more time on the wheel.

I loved this pottery class. Nam is a great teacher but also let’s you do your own thing and there’s no pressure creating anything you don’t want. I’m really pleased with the pots I made and was happy that we could get them glazed and take home! Will definitely be back for more.

Really nice experience. If you never tried pottery class, this is the right way to understand if you really like it. A general imprinting about pottery can let you decide to sign up for a class. Otherwise you can spend relaxing hours followed by two good and kind teachers. Thank you guys hope to see you soon again.

Great 2 hour taster session with Nam and his enthusiastic team on Sunday afternoon. Large easy to reach studio - clay throwing was the highlight! Looking forward to seeing my creations soon!

The class was great fun, relaxed, creative and I was able to make 3 pots using two methods or creating the pot. There was flexibility in what you made and the teacher was professional, helpful and relaxed. 2 hours didn't feel like enough purely out of a new found enjoyment for pottery! Really enjoyed my first session and can't wait to come back for some more lessons!
