Due to Covid I have had to postpone classes but if if you are interested, email me suleaver@gmail.com and I will let you know when I am starting again


INTRODUCTION TO CERAMICS 6 weeks, afternoon or evening session of 2.5 hours

This 6 week course will lead you step by step through some of the many and varied ways of working with clay

Projects include tiles, small dishes, a ceramic mirror or clock, a Roman oil lamp, ceramic jewellery and a taster session of throwing on the wheel. Suitable for complete beginners or those with some experience


Create your own mini gardens in a Hackney Pottery Studio

In this 4 hr workshop you will make 2 plant holders for succulent plants in red terracotta clay, one free standing and one hanging pot. They will be fired and ready to pick up later with a selection of plants and hanging material


Make a working replica Roman oil lamp in clay. These lamps use cooking oil and a wick and are lit like a candle. 

The workshop offers an introduction to pottery techniques including using a press mould, joining clay, fettling and finishing and the experience of making a ceramic oil lamp using the same techniques and materials as the Romans did.


 For people who have completed the Introduction to ceramics course I run a Tuesday night class for your own projects or a 3 session raku course ( runs twice a year)
