The first classes at the brand new Pottery Centre on Brockley Rise will begin on April 21st.

Here's what Lewisham News had to say about it:

"It will be the venue for a range of pottery courses, from shorttasters to City and Guilds. The studio is well equipped with four kilns, 14wheels, a glaze room and a resources room. As well as throwing, you can learnhow to make pottery and sculpture by coiling, slab-building and pressmoulding.

You can also learn a range of decoration techniques and processes using slipsand glazing. Courses are run by Community Education Lewisham (CEL), part ofLewisham Council, at all times of day. There will also be five Saturday courses, plus week-long intensive courses in May and in the summer.
