Due to Covid and the small size of my studio, I am not running any group classes at the moment. If you would like to be notified when they begin again please sign up to my mailing list.

There will be 3 x 5 week blocks of classes. 

I offer weekly hand building classes during term-time. These are normally 5 week courses of 2.5 hours each and introduce you to a range of techniques including pinch pots, coil building, soft and hard slabs and kurinuki. Surface decoration includes texture and slip and students may glaze their pots with a clear glaze after the first firing.

Shown here is an example of a slab built vessel built by one of my students.   

The cost is £150 plus firing fees for each piece you wish to keep are charged at £7 per kilo.



I offer throwing classes on the potters wheel. These are one-to-one classes situated in my studio at the bottom of my garden, and tailored to your individual  needs.

I can start you on your throwing journey with beginners classes or if you are struggling with your technique I can help you to perfect this by giving you basic steps to throwing a good cylinder – the basis of most pots on the wheel.


Sessions are 2.5 hours @ £85 or 1.5 hours at £55. Please contact me to book in at nicolagillis@gmail.com
