Discover the Love of Pottery at Silky Shapes Studio


We’ve all watched potters creating wonderful pieces at the wheel, the clay transforming into glorious creations in no time at all. It’s often easy to dismiss the idea that you could do the same, saying to yourself that pottery is something that must be really difficult and time-consuming to learn. Also, real life gets in the way, and all too often we neglect our creative dreams. At Silky Shapes Studio, it’s easier than you think to make your pottery dreams come true.


Unleash Your Creative Skill


At Silky Shapes Studio we believe that pottery should be accessible to all; it should be fun to learn too! That’s why you can take a pottery course here with no previous experience. Groups are small and the instructors are highly experienced and very patient. You’ll be given detailed demonstrations and have constant supervision to keep your pottery on the right track. There’s no need to worry about not getting it right straight away, as you’ll be in a group with people of the same level as yourself. Chances are you’ll make some new like-minded friends as you explore your shared love of pottery together.


At Silky Shapes Studio, you’ll be able to create your own unique pottery pieces after just one lesson. All materials are provided for you, and you get to take home everything you make. This can be a great way of tracking your process, and it will give you a great sense of satisfaction looking at something you’ve made yourself. You’re probably a lot more creative than you realise.


Learning pottery can open up a whole variety of other avenues in your life, too. It will enable you to create unique, personalised gifts for your family and friends, and you can even earn an extra income by selling your pieces at craft fairs and markets on weekends. People love to know they own a one-off, original piece of art; or you can combine creativity with practicality by creating functional items that people can use in their homes day to day.


Improve Your Quality of Life


Learning and practicing a creative skill has many benefits for you and those around you. It can lift your mood, improve your concentration and attention to detail, and give you confidence through the sense of achievement it brings, it’s definitely time to give pottery a try.
