Studio Pottery London is a light filled spacious haven of creativity. A workshop, designed for anyone who wants to work with clay – from beginners to more experienced potters – it’s a place of calm and community for those who want to meet like-minded people interested in making art.
There are two teaching classrooms with six wheels, meaning that the ambience is always intimate and there is a special member’s area, which has been carefully designed to provide premium space. Guided by their resident potter, members and students can choose one-to-one throwing or mentoring sessions. There is also a passionate teaching team and technician who are on hand to help and visitors are also able to socialise in the central areas with its library, kitchenette and bespoke facilities.
The studio, gallery and members shop made Belgravia its home over a year ago and the team was drawn to the eclectic area by its history and sense of community spirit. They have welcomed a variety of visitors and blend an incredible creative form with the meditative art of being at one with the wheel.
Studio director, Lucy Attwood and Gregory Tingay, artist director say that their favourite time of the year is Chelsea Flower Show week, when the whole area comes even more alive with floral displays and they are also charmed by the historical resonance of the area.
When they have a little bit of time, they love to have coffee at Wild by Tart, the neighbourhood restaurant before spending a day at the studio with clients, visitors and friends helping them to create works of art.
