Our student mastering the pinch pot techinque!
Maxability’s courses include several techniques, giving you an all-purpose ceramic ‘toolkit’ that will enable you to make anything you can think of, from simple bowls, cups and plates to big vases and unique sculptural pieces. At one of the first sessions you can learn how to make a coilpot.
Here you can see how it is made by Maxability’s teacher- highly skilled and experienced ceramicist- Vinicius Les (Colour & Clay).

We are delighted to welcome Sam Kelly and Jamie Francis for a return concert on 27 October, at the usual time of 7pm.
For full booking instructions, including suggested donations, please have a look at our concerts page.
Multi-award-winning folk musicians Sam Kelly and Jamie Francis first met at university in Brighton in 2010 and started performing around Brighton as a duo, playing folk and blues songs. They have become two of the most respected and innovative musicians on the British folk scene, and are the main songwriting partnership behind the hit folk band Sam Kelly and The Lost Boys.
They continue to play together throughout the UK at folk clubs, music venues and festivals, performing inventive interpretations of tunes and songs (in between humorous anecdotes and stories of their misadventures). An evening of most pleasurable musical entertainment is guaranteed!
You can find out more about them by visiting Sam Kelly’s website.
Sam and Jamie performed for Maxability a few years ago. The event proved so popular that, ever since, audience members have been entreating us to bring them back! The enforced cancellation of our previously scheduled ensemble has enabled us to oblige, and thankfully the lads were not booked to play elsewhere that night!
Their work has attracted numerous rave reviews. Here are just a few edited highlights:
About Sam Kelly:
‘What a beautiful singer. He has that really rare male voice, that soft-edged tone, you know those beautiful tenor voices of the 30’s and 40’s… it really draws you in.’
Kate Rusby, fRoots magazine (on the ‘next big thing’).
‘Sam has such a beautiful voice and sings with so much soul. I’ve seen him perform live a few times and he’s amazing.’
‘I think this guy is absolutely brilliant…. His voice is beyond sublime.’
‘Amazing, thrilling music.’
Mark Radcliffe, Radio 2 Folk Show
‘A captivating performer, Sam Kelly has one of the best young male voices in British acoustic roots music. Seriously… Check him out!’
About Jamie Francis:
‘Fantastic banjo player’
Mike Harding, the Mike Harding Folk Show
‘Stealing the banjo from the clutches of Mumford and Sons’
Huey Morgan, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, BBC Radio 2
