The Studio

Welcome to the vibrant Hanwell pottery studio where we offer an extensive range of classes for all abilities.

There has been a large pottery in the basement of Hanwell Community Centre since the 1960s. To have a pottery studio in this amazing, historic building is a real privilege. Hanwell and Ealing are bursting with amateur potters. Having this space in the Community Centre allows us to give people the opportunity to practise ceramics seriously on a regular basis, or to simply have a go.

We are equipped with 8 wheels, 3 kilns, and tools for both hand builders and throwers.
