Introductory throwing course

I have thoroughly enjoyed my course at the clay room and have already signed up to continue. I was a complete beginner and the atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed. The teaching is excellent, with clear instruction that allows you to steadily grow in skills and confidence, while working at your own pace. Highly recommended!

Introductory throwing course

This was the perfect introductory course to throwing! Sophie is a great teacher and gives lots of guidance through each stage of throwing which helped me to understanding the importance of different movements to start to form the clay. From never having thrown before, I have come away with a range of different pots which I am very happy with! The studio was really well stocked with different clays and glazes - I will definitely be back there again.

This throwing course run by Sophie Southgate is excellent. Sophie has a knack of explaining the methods and she is patient, thorough and encouraging.

Introductory Pottery Course in Orpington, Kent

I did two terms at a different pottery, but learnt more in 5 weeks with Sophie. She is an excellent teacher with a lot of patience. I’m doing another throwing course with her in August, then I want to continue doing general pottery in the future with some hand building and sculpture as well as throwing.

Introductory Pottery Course in Orpington, Kent

Have just completed an "Introduction to Throwing" course and learnt more in 1 week with Sophie than in 10 on a previous Adult Ed Course! Class size is small, enabling personalised tuition in a sociable environment. Sophie is an excellent teacher, breaking down techniques into manageable steps and providing timely feedback and encouragement.
I have already signed up for a second throwing course and would like to explore hand building too.
Thank you Sophie & the Clay Room

This is an excellent introduction to working with clay.
Sophie is an inspirational, knowledgeable and very patient teacher. She explains things very clearly and is friendly and engaging.
The venue is perfect for classes, well set out and organised and in a beautiful setting.

Introductory Pottery Course in Orpington, Kent

I found The Clay Room on line by chance. I attended pottery classes many years ago and was thrilled to find a local studio near Orpington where I could pick up again. Sophie is an extremely talented and skilled teacher. She runs several classes for beginners and for the experienced clay workers. She has also attended and won several accolades of her own'work. This is the best pottery class I have ever attended. Thank you Sophie.
