Maxability ceramics classes for learning disabled adults

Maxability ceramics classes, run by highly skilled and experienced ceramicist, Vinicius Les, are for learning disabled and physically disabled adults, as well as general admission classes for all adults. Maxability, a charity that was established by Anita and Emile Woolf, inspired by their son, who is deaf and physically disabled, aims to support those with disabilities, enabling them to discover and develop their talents and artistic abilities through quality ceramics and pottery classes. We are able to accommodate all levels of disability, and offer one-to-one guidance to each attendee. All attendees are encouraged to bring along their carer if they have one. Classes cost £125 per person for a 10-week course. We can also discuss a 6-week course, please get in touch if you're interested in this. Classes are held at the Flightways Centre in Colindale and the cost of attendance is heavily subsidised by fundraising concerts and dinners held by the charity, the sale of some ceramics items, National Lottery funding, and also by the cost of attendance of the general admissions classes. Feedback from attendees at our classes is overwhelmingly positive, with both learning and physically disabled adults finding the classes to be empowering, enjoyable and inspiring. Attendees at our classes are guided in all stages of creating their ceramics items, so that after an average of 4 weeks they have a completed item of handmade pottery. The items can then be taken home to keep or give as a gift, or sold by the charity with the modest income going to the attendee – another way our courses empower disabled people.
