We’ve still got some places on our ceramics classes. Join us and our highly talented teacher, Vinicius Les, to learn all about ceramics and take home your wonderful creations. We’re not-for-profit and our classes are heavily subsidised so it’s brilliant value. Our Saturday classes are designed for adults and children 12+ years. Admissions to these classes help to support the cost of classes for those with learning and physically disabilities for our weekday classes.

You will learn all of the basic skills, from which there are endless designing possibilities:

– Designing
– Slab building
– Hand sculpting and moulding, including pinching, coiling and slabbing
– Painting
– Glazing
– Firing
– There is a potter’s wheel available for those already skilled and interested in mastering this
– Special, 1:1 teaching is also available to interested people

Classes are held at the Flightways Centre in Colindale.

Tuesday and Thursday Maxability ceramics classes, run by highly skilled ceramicist, Vinicius Les, are for physically disabled adults, as well as general admission classes for all adults. Maxability, a charity that was established by Anita and Emile Woolf, inspired by their son, who is deaf and physically disabled, aims to support those with disabilities, enabling them to discover and develop their talents and artistic abilities through quality ceramics and pottery classes.

We are able to accommodate all levels of disability, and offer one-to-one guidance to each attendee. All attendees are encouraged to bring along their carer if they have one.

Classes cost Β£125 per person for a 10-week course. We can also discuss a 6-week course, please get in touch if you’re interested in this.

Classes are held at the Flightways Centre in Colindale and the cost of attendance is heavily subsidised by fundraising concerts and dinners held by the charity, the sale of some ceramics items, National Lottery funding, and also by the cost of attendance of the general admissions classes.

Feedback from attendees at our classes is overwhelmingly positive, with both learning and physically disabled adults finding the classes to be empowering, enjoyable and inspiring. Attendees at our classes are guided in all stages of creating their ceramics items, so that after an average of 4 weeks they have a completed item of handmade pottery. The items can then be taken home to keep or give as a gift, or sold by the charity with the modest income going to the attendee – another way our courses empower disabled people.
