Studio1Ceramics is a workshop in the heart of Wood Green within Blue House Yard which is located a few minutes walk from Wood Green Station.

The classes are taught by Martha Todd RCA MA who has been a practicing ceramic artist and sculptor for 13 years and is currently researching for a PhD based on figurative sculpture in contemporary art.

The studio is a beautiful bright space in which Martha teaches a series of clay workshops for all levels and abilities. The classes are small in size, ensuring that there is plenty of support for individual students.

Martha teaches hand-building techniques in clay as well as surface decoration, glazing, mould-making as well as specialist classes.

Prices include all materials and firings (which will include an initial bisque firing and a glaze firing).

We had such a good time in our taster session. Martha was a great tutor, and lovely company, with excellent taste in music! We were all inspired by the lovely pots and sculptures in the studio, and found the whole experience relaxing and fun. Two awesome hours of ceramics!

This was a great taster session! I learnt a lot about making different types of pots and I understand the process a lot better. Martha was a great teacher and provided all the equipment needed. It's a fantastic class and I highly recommend it!

I really enjoyed this day course as Martha gave us all hints and tips throughout the day as we progressed with our mini projects. The fact that we all managed to underglaze / slip our creations by the end of the day made it really satisfying And the lunch was delicious :) I will definitely be back.

We really enjoyed our Saturday workshop with Martha. It doesn’t matter if you’re a complete beginner or more advanced, you are sure to enjoy this class! Martha is hugely talented and very knowledgeable - She gives you complete freedom to make whatever you wish, perfectly balanced with as much or as little guidance as you require. The classes are small in size, we were a group of five which meant we had lots of one to one guidance from Martha. Such a fun day, lots of interesting conversation and a delicious light lunch as well! If you’re in two minds about booking a class with Martha, I say go for it! It’s a chance to try something new! You’ll meet like minded people, switch off from the outside world and let your creativity flow - Seriously, what are you waiting for??!!! Go for it!!!

The Saturday Workshop was great as it gave you time to properly get into making something a bit more complicated. It was a great way to spend a Saturday!

I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed weeknight ceramics classes @ studio1ceramics. It is so fulfilling to have some creative downtime during the week and Martha is so amazing at helping you bring your ideas to life. I am going to join this class again and probably will continue going for the foreseeable future!!!!

Martha's a really helpful and relaxed teacher. She makes you feel at ease even when you're a complete beginner! The atmosphere is very informal and although the space is small, it works well and the group is always friendly. I would thoroughly recommend Martha's classes! Louise Palmer

Great course. Small groups so it’s really cosy and you get time with the teacher. First class is techniques, following 3 classes are to work on your own projects with support if you need. :)

Really enjoyable and satisfying course - perfect if you want to learn the basics and complete your own projects. Less a formal step-by-step course, more about helping you to inspire/realise your own creative ideas.

Enjoyed the course very much. Martha is very relaxed about what you might want to do, assuming it can realistically be achieved. The space is small and 5 is a bit of a squeeze, but all the people I was there with were nice and got on with their own pieces of work. My friend and I made very different things and Martha is good at throwing around ideas so you can get as close as you can to what you want to make. A good 4 evenings, and I probably could have done with one more week!

I initially took a taster session with Martha, and enjoyed it so much I signed up for the evening ceramics course! Martha is an awesome teacher with incredible patience. She provides as much (or as little) guidance as you need, and is willing to work with the ideas you bring. It was a joy to spend evenings learning and creating at studio1ceramics!

I love these classes! Martha is a great teacher - very calm, experienced and knowledgable. I find the classes very therapeutic and I love the fact it is always a small class (5 ppl max) meaning Martha has a lot of time for each of us. I’ve been going on and off since January and will continue going for a long time.

I'm almost embarrassed to leave another review as this is my 3rd course with Martha!! The fact that I've booked a 4-week course 3 times should be testament enough to just how great this is. If you see a space on one of her courses - book it quick!!

I came with my two sons who are 7 and 3. My oldest is very proud of his Cheetah and his Eagle and he'd taken it to school for 'show and tell' and he's got some lovely feedback from his classmates. I'm quite happy with my plant pot, so is the Aloe Vera which now resides. Martha was great with the kids, definitely would go again for a family session.

This taster session was the perfect course! It was the right amount of time and the right side. I felt I got a really good introduction to the techniques used, the types of clay, the different tools and what they can be used for as well as a taster into how to decorate the pots. It made me want to book onto a full course. Getting to make not one, but two pots was a bonus. Can't wait to pick them up!

Super evening with Martha and others - the time flew by. We made two pots, using two different techniques, as well as learning about glazing and finishing, and were able to decorate the pots ready for firing. Martha is lovely, very friendly and very supportive of absolute beginners as well as those with some experience. Highly recommended.
