Masterclass with Florian Gadsby | "Advanced Throwing"| Sunday 11 June | 10am - 5pm | Advanced | £270 |


This one day intensive throwing workshop is intended for those who wish to improve their existing throwing skills under the skilful guidance of master potter Florian Gadsby.

This will be a small class with only 6 people, so there will be an opportunity to learn specific skills. Florian will focus on the improvement of core throwing skills, repetition and quality of finish; ranging from the wedging of clay, throwing efficiently and properly, alongside answering and demonstrating any queries the participants might have.

Please note that the masterclass is focussed on skill building so students should not expect to take pieces home after the class. 


The price includes all clay and materials. There will be tea, coffee and biscuits available throughout the day.  


Please bring an apron and a packed lunch (or you can go to one of our lovely local cafes when we break for lunch). .

We recommend that you cut your nails short and tie back long hair before the class.


Florian Gadsby is a potter currently working at Maze Hill Pottery alongside Lisa Hammond. After finishing school he was successful in obtaining a place on the DCCoI Ceramics Skills and Design Training Course in Ireland (2012-14). Thereafter he started as Hammond's apprentice for two years (2014-16), after which he continued for a further year part-time as her assistant. He also teaches classes at the pottery where the focus is on practical ability and repetition.

Florian makes functional tableware, as well as pieces such as hand-thrown pens, inkwells and watercolour palette sets, as drawing, painting and design are very important to him in his making process. He uses a series of subtle glazes that have a complex, crystalline structure to complement the simple forms.

Florian currently has an impressive following of more than 100,000 people on Instagram. 


The master class is taught at our beautiful studio in Hackney, 90 De Beauvoir Road, N1 4EN.
