What is pottery making?
Pottery making at SocialPottery involves a creative and hands-on experience where individuals can come to mold and shape own ceramic pieces. It’s a place where creativity meets relaxation, as guests work with clay to create something unique, either through hand-building or wheel-throwing.
It’s designed to accommodate all levels of experience, from beginners to more practiced potters, offering a space for learning, experimenting, and enjoying the craft of pottery. Plus, Social Pottery provides an opportunity to socialize, making it a great venue for parties and corporate events, where guests can book sessions online in advance to guarantee a spot for their pottery-making experience.
Firing Your Pottery
If your pottery gets damaged during glazing or firing, we’ll do our best to provide a replacement. Handmade pottery can be unpredictable, but we always strive to prevent issues. Embrace the creative journey with us!
Can I bring Drinks and Snacks?
Feel free to bring your own drinks, but note that only cans are allowed (maximum of 2 per person). However, for health and safety reasons, food and nibbles aren’t permitted in our Making Studio.

Are there any age restrictions?
- During daytime hours, there are no age restrictions, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
- At Social Pottery, our night classes are for adults and maintain an adult atmosphere where alcohol is consumed. As a result, guests must be 12 or older to attend. Guests aged 13 to 17 may attend with a guardian, and those 18 or older are welcome to join. All participants must be registered for the event.
Can you come to me?
Yes, as long as you’re a group of 10 or more. This costs a little extra, so email us and we’ll work out the details. You might also like to check out our virtual options.
Do you do discounts for charities?
When can I collect my items?
Opting to kiln-fire your pottery at our studio means your pieces will be ready to collect from 120 Kentish Town Road, NW1 9PY, three weeks post-lesson.
You have an eight-week window to collect it from the initial notice. After ten weeks, we’ll donate uncollected items (unless we hear from you) due to limited storage space.
What happens if my item is damaged at Social Pottery?
