Inspired by the great pottery throw down? You can try your hand at pottery in a cute Clapham workshop.
It’s that weird part of the year where life hasn’t really picked up since Christmas, you’re doing dry Jan and you’ve given up on your NY resolutions already. Things can look a little bleak. Why not jazz up these Wintery months by trying out something different. How about throwing pottery? Why not.
This cute little pottery is tucked away in a back street near Abbeville road. When you spot it, you have to climb through a tiny door in to get inside which adds to the charm of the place. It’s cosy and quaint, stacked floor to ceiling with beautiful pottery.
Lottypottypots (what a name) has a load of different workshops and classes to offer, so whether you are a pottery pro or a complete novice there will be something for you. You can head there for a mini course which will spread over a few weeks depending on your availability, or, if you’re scared of commitment, why not try out a 2 hour taster workshop.
The space doubles up as both studio and shop, so whilst you are crafting your new jug/plate/piece of art, you can get inspiration from all of the professional stuff around you. The idea of these workshops all centres around having fun and you can decide exactly what you want to make with the help of the skilled potters. Don’t want to get your hands dirty? No stress. Pop in for a browse of their pottery which is all available to purchase. They also take commissions which make the perfect bespoke presents for special occasions and for spoiling someone special with a one of a kind gift.
