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...

Their studio is in a beautifully light and spacious little building, aptly named the Pottery Lane Art Centre, or PLACE, which works with the primary school next door to boost access to arts education and facilities. The centre also works to promote local artists with residencies, art markets and a shop on site selling only handmade and original art & crafts.

This workspace was fantastic. I bought it for a friend and myself for her birthday. Zach was great and very helpful and engaging. We really enjoyed the class and would definitely recommend it.

The teaching was humorous and engaging with many pottery related puns being exchanged to lighten and liven up the mood. Even though my partner and I are 10 minutes late into the class, we managed to catch up with breeze and ease with the effective guidance. Technical tools, processes and their respective purposes, are clearly explained. The class size is great for any popping inquiry to be amply answered. It is a great date idea to pick up a new skill interest on a weekend and create tangible memories with your loved ones. What's more, there will be a piece of handcrafted memorabilia which could be taken home. Highly recommend!

Everything was perfect about this workshop. Great teacher, very patient, friendly and knowledgeable! The venue was also wonderful, lots of plants and natural light to work in. We learnt all the basics to get started on the wheel and also made 2 wonderful bowls that we can't wait to collect. All in all, a wonderful experience that I look forward to repeating soon. Thank you!

We had a great time making our mugs on Sunday. The group was a good size and Zak was very attentive - especially since one of us couldn't seem to roll out the clay! Can't wait to pick up our finished pieces. Highly recommend and great value for money! Massive thanks to Zak and the rest of the team!

This course was fun, informative, and a relaxing experience for me. Suzanne was a patient, helpful and friendly tutor. I also loved her work, the beautiful pieces of jewelry which were on display...... which really inspired me. I am really looking forward to seeing the pieces I made. I highly recommend her.

I loved this class and spent a wonderful morning at the studio. Suzanne is a lovely teacher, very kind, friendly and easy to talk to. She also offered to add a final glaze to the pieces as we run out of time after painting - porcelain is a fab material and I can't wait to see the results! I hope to be able to do another course.

This was a relaxed class - I appreciate that we were not rushed to finish our mug but instead took the time until we were happy with it! Zach is very knowledgeable and helpful :) I think maybe you could encourage beginners to go with simpler handles in the first step, as we were trying crazy shapes but not really knowing what they were for ^^

I attended a 'taster class' in ceramics (made my own cereal bowl). It was the first time I've done anything with clay since I was a teen-ager (nearly 40 years!). My instructor was very attentive, and eager to help me along the process. He patiently helped me through the process, and I am proud of my final product. The studio is also very well set up, and a great place to work. They respect lock-down rules, and give ample space to work safely. I recommend to explore your creative side.

I absolutely loved the experience -my first and certainly not my last. A fun group, Odile and Kieran really create a wonderful atmosphere - great teaching style, informative and encouraging and I was delighted with the end result! Another big plus was focusing on this one thing - for obvious reasons! Time stood still/went in a blink and I left feeling so relaxed. Thank you so much Odile and Kieran

Odile is a wonderful teacher! She is charming and patient and gives very clear instructions that are easy to follow. The class was paced correctly without feeling rushed or drawn out. A very relaxing experience. The studio is lovely and bright with glass walls all around and is very welcoming. I really enjoyed myself and will be signing up to her other courses.

Such fun. First time on the wheel and really enjoyed it. Odile explained things beautifully. Wished we could have stayed there for looooonger :) Excited to see how our bowls turn out once they are ready!

Odile is just lovely! She really cares for her students and she is a wonderful teacher. The atelier is also very bright and well organised. I am so glad I found her! I was really needing a bit of clay in my life!

It was a fun class, I learned how to do a mug that looked like a mug in the end, which is amazing. The instructor was professional and very nice, made me feel welcomed and definitely knew what he was doing. The only down side was that I was the only person taking that class that day, which was a bit awkward at times but it wasn't their fault, and I still had a great time.

The class was held at a cosy studio in Holland Park. Odile was a great instructor - warm, friendly and patient despite our clumsiness with the clay (because we’re first timers)! I enjoyed the class immensely, and would really love to head back again. Would strongly recommend this class!

I had so much fun learning from Odile who is a great teacher! Having never done any pottery at all, it was lovely to have such clear guidance and explanations about all the aspects of learning to throw, from what the clay needs through to the movements of the wheel. It was roll-up your sleeves and get-stuck-in fun from the first moment - and I made two not so shabby bowls! Would definitely recommend Odile and the classes in the lovely studio to anyone wanting to give the wheel a try!

This was such a great class. Odile said it was the first in their new space which is really lovely – tons of natural light and big windows. Odile is super friendly and an absolutely excellent teacher. I’m so chuffed with the two bowls I managed to make thanks to her coaching. The class size of just three was perfect. Would highly recommend.

We had a really enjoyable afternoon doing this class. Odile was thorough in talking us through the materials and tools that we were working with. She did the demonstrations at a pace that was easy to follow. She also paid everyone enough attention so we were assured as to how we were getting on. We learnt different techniques of handling the clay, including how to shape our bowls and make modifications at different stages of making it. There are several colours of glazes that we could choose, and Odile would take our bowls away and glaze and fire them after the class. So we'd get our bowls in the post after a few weeks. As a bonus, it was also quite meditative working on clay, so overall a really nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Thanks again, Odile!

Everything was great. The teacher explained everything very good and you could always ask something. She came to you to help or to review your work. I now know how to work with clay and how mugs are made.

Our pottery class was so much fun, the only thing I regret is not booking a longer class! Odile was very calm and taught us the ropes, always on hand to help when anything went wrong! Now we want to book more!

Had the most fantastic, absorbing, relaxing afternoon with Odile in her lovely spacious studio. She explained each step well and showed us simply how to go through the process of building our own slab pottery mug, and everyone in the group produce something unique and brilliant! I can’t wait to receive the finished product :oD

We went to Odile's class as a group of 3 for one of the girls birthdays. We all had a wonderful time! Odile is super friendly and very good at walking you through the process of making your first piece. We only wished we could have stayed all afternoon and kept playing. It was a lot of fun. Thanks Odile!!

The class was wonderful and so was Odile! The step-based approach to using the wheel and preparing the clay was concise and useful when put into practice. Odile was unendingly patient with a first-time wheel-er like me, and her love of clay and of teaching her art was a joy to experience! Thank you, Odile; I can’t wait to come back!

Had a great time at the Wheel Workshop! Very informative and fun, and the small group helped to make sure I/we had individual attention and help. It was a lovely 90 minutes, and I can't wait to see my "bowls" in their finished product! Thank you Odile, you were lovely and very helpful!

Great facilities and a wonderful teacher! Odile is extremely welcoming and friendly. The class started with us learning how to prep the clay before centering it on the wheel and finally throwing. Odile was very encouraging and really knows her stuff. It was a wonderful experience and I'd highly recommend it

A very enjoyable class that has given me the bug! We used the wheel to make a bowl or two and it was great fun. A lot harder than you think. Odile was very friendly and with only 3 people in the class you get lots of attention! Odile finishes off the bowls and will send to us in 3 weeks, I can't wait to see my creation! I only wish it was longer as time seem to fly!

Odile was a perfect teacher, very patient and gave a couple of demos so we could really get to grips with the process of using the wheel. She guided very calmly and stepped in to save the day when things start to go pear-shaped! Beautiful studio and surroundings. Will definitely go back again!

Such a nice surprise to walk into the class and find out that it was only for myself and another person. With such a small class it was really easy to develop the skills quickly. Odile was friendly and supportive. She gave clear demos and instructions. Really nice way to spend a weekend. Highly recommend!

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

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!

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! :)

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.

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' 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.

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!

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!!!
