Odile instantly fell in love with pottery after attending an evening course in Farnham. She found the endless process of creativity and discovery of ideas very engaging and after a few months of classes started her own pottery business. She has now moved to London along with her partner, Kieran, who helps with the business side of their studio.

Odile divides her time between developing new techniques & glazes, pursuing her own ceramics work and teaching.

I absolutely loved this class! The studio is part of a larger shared artists space (Kindred Studios) which is based near Maida Vale and super easy to get to. When I arrived Odile had a cup of tea brewing, and I had a chance to have a look around before the class started. The studio itself is really lovely and bright, and gives such a great insight in to the inner workings of a full time ceramicist. The class started with such an expert demonstration from Odile that I thought I would be picking up the wheel throwing in no time, little did I realise that her skills make it look a lot easier than it is (it's also totally mesmerising to watch)! We then spent some time cutting and shaping our clay into usable pieces ready to start throwing on the wheel. Of course this was my favourite part of the workshop, and after a few failed attempts, and lots of help and patience from Odile, I finally got the hang of it (I think!) and managed to create a bowl that I was incredibly happy with. It's such a great feeling of accomplishment, and I can't wait to see the bowl once it's glazed and fired. Something I didn't know, glazing is basically like a light coat of paint, and Odile gave us choices on the colour - bonus! I left the studio with a big smile on my face and have definitely got the pottery bug. Thank you so much to Odile and Obby for the perfect Sunday - 5 stars!!!

It was a really great workshop, and as it was a small group we were able to get a lot of help and attention throughout. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to try out the pottery wheel and have a little Ghost moment!

A great workshop for beginners in a very friendly studio learning the basic skills required to work clay on a wheel. Started with an in depth demonstration of all the techniques we would be using before getting our hands dirty and making our bowls (with a little help)! Would highly recommend!

Odile is a fantastic teacher. There are only 3 people in total so she's able to give great individual attention. Odile teaches you how to get started using a pottery wheel and how to shape a bowl, which she will glaze and send to you.

We had such a fun afternoon and despite our intial misgivings that we would make a complete mess, we made two pots that Odile is kindly glazing and posting to us.It was our first time using a pottery wheel, however Odile, with her initial demonstration, made it all seem so simple. She then guided us through the process step by step, giving assistance and encouragement when needed and making the experience throughly enjoyable and positive. Odile is welcoming and friendly and we would definitely recommend her workshop. Both of us would like to go back to have another go!

Odile' pottery wheel class was absolutely superb. I can't thank her enough for the best fun I've had in ages. I came away feeling over the moon at having started learning a new skill in the most relaxed and supportive environment. Odile is a truly wonderful teacher and is brimming with expert knowledge, enthusiasm and encouragement. Her passion for her work really shines through. Thank you Odile - I will definitely be returning very soon.

This workshop was great - really fun and rewarding. It was a class of three so we each got a lot of one-on-one attention. It's harder than it looks but Odile was great at guiding me through the steps. Can't wait to see my glazed pot!

Odile’s workshop was so much fun! Odile was super friendly, a fantastic teacher, informative and fun. The venue is an old college turned into creative studios which is a really nice idea! I’ve never worked with clay before and made my own bowl! I would highly recommend and definitely return for more workshops.

Odile was wonderfully helpful and clear with her teaching, in which we made great use of the hour and a half making 2 bowls. She has fantastic troubleshooting skills to make any mistake into a purpose ;) An intimate session with 3 people in total so you really do get attention and help. I'll be back! Great environment and thank you for making my first experience so memorable and positive! :)

My partner and I had so much fun centre-ing and throwing on the wheel, making our own breakfast/pasta/salad bowls. We are so excited to see the glazed and fired products in a few weeks' time! Odile is an amazing tutor and an impressive artist and potter. She gave very clear instructions, was incredibly patient, and extremely encouraging. Odile was also fantastic at meeting her students at our different experience levels and making sure that we were all able to achieve our goals for the lesson. We had a such a wonderful time today and will definitely be back for more lessons!

Makes a brilliant cup of tea and has a great simple method of explaining how to work on a wheel. Classes are a good size which means everyone gets help. I can't wait to see the end result!!!

I took part to the Wheel pottery workshop and I found it absolutely brilliant. Odille is very sweet and she explains everything clearly, breaking down in steps in order to make everything even simpler. I went there with a friend with Asperger Syndrome and Odille has been superb. Herself and her activity is very inclusive for whom has got conditions and hasn't: touching clay and all other materials is very primordial, very therapeutic and everyone can benefit from it. As I suggested he it would be fantastic if she could run a weekly course to enter in depth in the art. Thank you Odille

Great class, Odile was great at explaining every step and was very helpful and encouraging. I have only tried wheel pottery (once and it was also a class with Odile!) before this class and I was surprised at how well my mug turned out to be!

I attended this workshop with 4 friends as part of a Hen Do, Odile was amazing and made the whole experience really enjoyable. Odile coached and encouraged us throughout the whole session and I'm really excited to receive the finished article in the post in the next few weeks. I would definitely recommend this workshop.

Odile was a fantastic, friendly teacher who guided us through the plate-making process in a very informative, relaxed and positive way. She made it very fun for us and reassured us if we thought we'd made a mistake. The room was prepared and organised upon our arrival and we had everything we needed in front of us. The workshop was brilliant we ended up with beautiful plates!! Thank you very much Odile.
