What we're about
Looking for a new hobby and to unleash your creative side? Then pottery is your answer. This wonderful craft is the antidote to the stresses of modern life. My name is Aliya and I run a studio in Crystal Palace London where I do weekly classes in both handbuilding and throwing on the potter's wheel. I have a first class honours degree in Ceramics from Camberwell College of Art. I have now been teaching for several years in and around South London. These classes help you get started by learning the various techniques whether it is throwing on the wheel or taking things a bit slower with coiling, building with slabs, making pinch pots, relief work on tiles or learning slip and glazing techniques. I practice continuous learning in a fun but relaxed environment surrounded by some lovely people. If you are a beginner you will need to do the beginners course before continuing with the regular classes. The classes are every Saturday and Wednesday evening so there's something to suit everyone. All skill levels are welcome. Beginners Pottery: Throwing on the potter's wheel £40 per person (2 hour class)inclusive of all materials plus a £3 per pot firing fee (most people make 1-2). Regulars/experienced can book the wheels for £15 per hour to continue their learning (clay is purchased separately). Beginners Pottery: Handbuilding 5 week course £140 (inclusive of all materials and firings, can be spread over 8 weeks) Regulars/experienced: 2.5 hours £30 inclusive of all materials and firings.
