COVID-19 update

Structured courses in Turning Earth’s Learning Hubs in Argall Avenue and Cremer St will resume in the coming weeks. This is in line with other adult education providers and community colleges across the country. All students who have pre-booked or interrupted courses have been contacted via email about their new starting dates (please check you spam folder too!). Please get in touch if you haven't received a message from us.

We have adapted our classrooms to provide the highest standards of Covid-19 secure learning. We have:

- moved all classes to sites large enough to accommodate full social distancing of 2 metres or fitted Perspex screens where this is not possible
- carried out regular Covid-19 Secure inspections
- created stringent cleaning protocols for high contact areas and shared equipment
- implemented temperature checks
- implemented visors and masks for teachers
- implemented amplification for teaching where necessary
- require all students to regularly wash hands
- require consistent mask wearing
- eliminated bottlenecks by installing more cleaning facilities
- implemented ventilation throughout and after classes
- carry out deep cleaning after classes


If you finished a course with us in 2020 and you still haven't collected your finished pieces, you can go to the Cremer Steet Learning Hub to do so from the 12th April 2021 on during our class times, that are usually:
- Monday: 7-9.30pm
- Tuesday and Wednesday: 11am-1pm or 7.30-9.30pm
- Thursday: 7-9.30pm
- Saturday:  11am-1.30pm or 3-5.30pm
- Sunday: 10.30-1pm

Please note: Turning Earth Hoxton classes sell out extremely quickly (often within minutes), particularly those held in the evenings. Due to our high number of subscribers and the comparatively small size of our team, we don't have the resources to manage an advance waiting list. Instead, we now list the date and time that each course goes online as soon as we have scheduled it so that you can set a reminder to come back and book. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to welcoming you into the studio soon.

Upcoming ceramics courses at Turning Earth Hoxton @ Arch 403 Cremer St

When we have classes available they will be displayed below and you can book online.  Unfortunately due to high levels of demand, we are unable to take pre-bookings or sign-ups over the phone or by email. The next courses to be listed can be found lower down the page, along with the date and time when they will be available to book.

About Turning Earth's ceramics classes

Our courses run all year round and each one is taught by an experienced Turning Earth artist. Standard classes cover both hand-building techniques and wheel throwing and are available for anyone ages 16 or older (although throwing classes are also available for people that just want to work on the wheel). Tuition fees are  £375 for a 12 week standard class, and each session is  3 hours long. When your work is ready to be fired, there’ll be a small charge of £3.60 per kg for materials. Courses are non-refundable once in progress.

We also offer courses in our site in E10, a beautiful ceramics retreat hidden in the Argall Avenue industrial estate in Leyton, near Lea Bridge Road station. We have a separate dedicated classroom in the Leyton studio, and so we are able offer a greater variety of courses there; if you can't find something suitable in Hoxton there may be a course online at Argall Avenue that would suit you.

You can also sign up for a week-long Turning Earth Intensive if you prefer to put aside a block of time to learn rather than attending a weekly class.
