About The Studio
The Studio @ Clapham is an inspiring and creative space. Located in the peaceful rural setting of the South Downs National Park with great views of the surrounding countryside, it is the perfect place to unwind.
Take a Pottery Class!
We offer short ‘project based’ pottery classes for Adults and Children or why not try tuition tailored to your individual requirements?
The art of pottery is oftentimes described as therapeutic and relaxing. While working with clay, your mind and body are in natural synergy, wrapped around your creative ambitions and goals. This thoughtful, artistic activity can open up the mind and relieve you of outside worries.
The Pottery Classes
Pottery – Handbuilding for Beginners
This evening class is held at Northbrook Metropolitan Collage. The class covers the fundamentals of hand building with clay. Students who are already confident hand builders are welcome to come along and work on their own projects.
