"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 and friendly pottery classes will inspire you to experiment with a wide range of pottery hand building techniques including pinch pots, coil pots, slab building, sculpture, use of molds and of course decoration using texture, glazes and engobes.
These classes are suitable for adults of all abilities and beginners are especially welcome!

Need a bit more support? Try our new 6-week pottery taster course! During our carefully structured course we will guide you step by step through 6 projects to teach you the basics of pottery hand-building and decoration techniques.
This course can be enjoyed as a standalone toe dip into the wonderful world of pottery or as an entry level introduction to skills you can develop further in our small group classes.
Over the past 2 years we have absorbed significant rises in the cost of materials and services. In fact our 4-class bundle has been the same price since we opened in 2013!

Of course we also offer pottery wheel throwing tuition.
For newcomers our hands-on Throwing Taster Class equips you with the basic skills you need to centre the clay and throw cylinders and bowls!
Next, our Level 1 Throwing Class will consolidate those skills and prepare you attend our small group classes where we support you in developing those skills to include "turning" the bottoms of your pots, adding handles and embellishments and, of course, throwing larger pieces,
