Lessons

One-to-one lessons cost £60 per 2h30m session, including materials and firing.  Two people can have a joint 2h30m session for £90.

Because objects must be fired before and after being decorated, at least two sessions are required to produce finished items.

Gift vouchers for pottery lessons are available – the ideal gift for a creative person!

Really enjoyed this morning with Marina. Our first ever attempt at pottery throwing. It was a very relaxed session in her garden workshop. Marina is very patient and hands on helping you every step of the way to make your own creations. We each made three pots. Which loom pretty darn good for beginners. Looking forward to our follow up session in a few weeks.

I’ve been going to classes with Marina for five months now and it’s been an amazing experience. Marina is very patient with teaching different techniques, we’ve done coiling and wheel and painted using glazes. I’ve brought my designs for plant pots and mugs and she’s helped me bring them to life – cannot recommend enough.

Jennifer

Lovely garden studio ceramics experience. So much to learn and made seemingly achievable in short sessions with Marina’s thoughtful and positive guidance. I would love to do more and hope to soon – thank you!

Hayley

We had a fantastic time. Marina was an amazing teacher and the time went so quickly. We could have stayed there all day we were enjoying it so much! We enjoyed chatting to Marina and the lovely coffees and biscuits were also a nice addition. We would definitely recommend a pottery session with Marina!

I started going to Marina’s classes a few of months ago and have been going ever since. I started with no experience and have already made some professional looking pots on the wheel. She is very welcoming and supportive of your individual ideas. I would definitely recommend her.

A friend and I decided were interested in trying out pottery and managed to find Marina. She was very patient and helpful with us beginners and we managed to make a few great pottery pieces! Marina is a great tutor and we would recommend her for anyone who would like to try out pottery – you will not be disappointed! Thank you so much Marina, we had a great time!

I bought a pottery class for my wife’s birthday and we went to see Marina together. We had a brilliant time with her, learnt a lot and had some really nice shortbread! Marina was patient and a good teacher and we both came away happy. Would highly recommend a course with Marina….

Clara

Great experience with friendly and skilled instructor. We managed to do a lot in the two hours, and it was a fun experience to use the wheel. Great to have 1 on 1 help with this as a complete beginner and I was pleased to have successfully made a bowl. Would definitely recommend

Louise

My teenage daughter had been doing pottery classes for a couple years, but wanted to try throwing a pot. When I googled throwing a pot in Surrey we were lucky enough to find Marina. A very experienced Potter based close to us in Dorking with a studio dedicated to all things pot like! We have had a few classes now and my daughter has the bug, she has bought home many pieces already and is gaining useful practical tips/hints from Marina who is a joy to learn with. I can recommend her highly whether you are experienced or not Marina will have you throwing successful pots on your first session!
