What happens in this class?

Fantastic evening spent crafting a piece which I cannot wait to collect once it has been glazed! So helpful, friendly and a lovely calm creative space - would highly recommend

I love pottery . I also love baking and decorating , and this happy combination came together in my first ever pottery class . I didn’t dare tackle the wheel (yet) so opted for the moulding clay technique clearly explained by owner Tessa who kindly sorted out the details of my gift voucher which I had been unable to use during lockdown . Sak Beh is a stylish little studio , intimate but with ample space to create and chat to fellow class mates , all half my age and amazingly creative ! I loved their enthusiasm and found the whole experience strangely therapeutic once the anxiety of starting from scratch faded . It was tempting to decorate my simple plate more lavishly, but had to reign it in , less is more !. Can't wait to see it glazed next .
