"Therapeutic & Fun"

Serious about ceramics?

Yes, we are, but we never forget that working with clay should be therapeutic, endlessly inspiring and always fun!

Pottery has been a passion here in Andalucía, southern Spain, for thousands of years. To hold a lump of clay, form and shape it, decorate and colour it, subject it to extreme heat, let it cool and then enjoy your creation forever is magical.

Our first pottery school opened in the Andalucían countryside near Alora in 2005, and soon attracted not only local students but also aspiring potters from countries as diverse as Finland, Russia, Israel and Kuwait.


In 2013 we moved to a new, larger studio on the Costa del Sol where we continue to enjoy meeting and working with students of all nationalities and abilities. We are easy to find, close to Marbella on the A7 coast road.

Our fun, friendly pottery classes and courses will inspire you to experiment with a wide range of pottery hand building techniques including pinch pots, coil pots, slab building, sculpture, use of moulds and of course decoration using texture, glazes and engobes.

Our classes are suitable for adults* of all abilities and beginners are especially welcome!
* Children aged 8 to 15 may attend if accompanied by an adult class participant. Standard class fee applies.

Of course we also offer our unique, results-focused throwing tuition.


For newcomers our hands-on Beginners Throwing Course equips you with the skills and knowledge you need to center the clay and throw cylinders and bowls, all in just 360 minutes!

Perhaps you are already throwing and have reached a plateau? We will troubleshoot your technique on the potter's wheel and help you achieve your throwing goals. Whether it's throwing bigger, perfecting a particular shape or learning to be your own best critic, we can help.

Not sure if pottery is for you? Nervous because you are a complete beginner?

Why not check out our gallery of student work and see what you too could achieve at our classes!
