'Stuff and Fings' was born out of Mandisa's love of tinkering with, well, 'Stuff and Fings'. Playing with textures and shapes, art and design, experimentation and fun are at the core of all things, 'Stuff and Fings'.

Having studied 'Surface Pattern Design' at Jacob Kramer college in Leeds, clay was never a medium she'd ever seriously considered, until recently. As a mother (to a young child), looking for something new to get her teeth into and to fit around the busy school schedule. She absolutely fell in love with clay on her first pottery taster workshop.

Ever since then, it's been full steam ahead. As a member of 'Cernamic Studio' which has provided Mandisa with the space to develop and grow, enjoying the freedom of the endless possibilities hand-building with clay opens up. The journey continues...it's the gift that keeps on giving! Now she is able to help those who would like to take their first endeavour in to working adventurously with clay.

From mid September 2019, situated in her own studio in the hub that is Peckham Levels, with new commissions and international collaborations afoot..the journey expands.

Wonderful experience and lovely tutor Mandisa. Haven’t picked up bowl yet but no matter how it turns out I loved the session and will definitely go back. Nice chilled vibe and relaxing atmosphere (fully forget your in an ex-car park. If you get the chance have a go!

Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our taster session!! The tutor Mandisa was really patient and we both finished the session with something we can take home and cherish. Thank you and we plan to go along again to see what other creations we can make and cherish

Really great experience. I was a beginner and Mandisa was incredibly kind and patient with me. She helped me make two pieces, a bowl and a plate, intervened when necessary but was also careful not to alter my original idea or construction. She has an incredible energy and great talent, which she finds a way of sharing with the rest of the class. I recommend this class to anyone who wants a chill (and relaxingly productive!) Sunday afternoon.

This was a great introduction into the world of clay work. Mandisa was great and her knowledgeable and friendly approach to teaching really made it fun. I recently picked up the piece I made and was very happy with it! I'll definitely be back again.

Mandisa was fabulous and very patient with all our requests. My friend and I each had 2 very different things we wanted to make and gave us even more clay when we run out of it. It was generally a very friendly environment having a conversation with Mandisa about her work, techniques and workshops. It was an inspiring and definitely crafty session and made me want to come back for sure.

I really enjoyed this class. Mandisa was very welcoming and helpful without being overbearing. I liked the loose structure that allowed one to play. There was still someone experienced there to instruct when necessary.

Such a great way to spend a Sunday evening, which for me can often be filled with Monday anxiety and boring work prep. Mandisa was welcoming, easy-going and clearly super talented. She whizzed through a really helpful demo before letting us get on with our own work. She had loads of tips, ideas and suggestions - and was really great at explaining the processes. The hand building was challenging but very therapeutic and I cant recommend it enough to anyone wanting to give clay work a go. Thanks so much Mandisa! Katie x

Absolutely brilliant time was had by all 6 of us during this class. Mindisa was a fab teacher and also lovely to spend our Sunday afternoon with. Mindisa was super knowledgeable and very patient with us as well! The 6 of us chose the class (as complete beginners!) for a chilled sunday afternoon experimenting and learning a new skill. However, I'd say that the class would be suitable for all levels of experience and whatever the occasion, whether it be a birthday celebration, Hen party, or to acquire a new/ more advanced skill.

We absolutely loved this class and would totally recommend! Mandisa was great, she gave us a little demo and instruction but mostly let us get on with it, but was always around to help and give us some handy tips. I found the booking process on here to be a bit confusing but Mandisa’s communication is great and things were sorted quickly. We can’t wait to see how our work turns out! Thanks so much for this!
