COVID-19 update: Turning Earth courses will continue

According to the new Health Protection Regulations, education is exempted from the ban on gathering. Ceramics courses from adult education providers and community colleges across the country will stay open under this exemption, which means that classes in Turning Earth’s Learning Hubs in Argall Avenue and Cremer St will continue as scheduled, with the most stringent measures in place to ensure they can do so in a Covid Secure way. To ensure Covid Secure learning we have:

moved all classes to rooms large enough to accommodate full social distancing
carried out Covid Secure inspections
created stringent cleaning protocols for high contact areas and shared equipment
implemented temperature checks
implemented visors for teachers
require all students to regularly wash hands
require mask wearing
eliminated bottlenecks by installing more cleaning facilities
open windows for ventilation throughout and ventilate thoroughly after classes
carry out deep cleaning after classes.

Please note: if you have class work to pick up please do so after December 2nd. We will hold all work for an extra month.

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.

About Turning Earth's ceramics classes

Our courses run all year round and each one is taught by an experienced Turning Earth artist. Each class has only 12 students to a teacher so you can expect plenty of individual attention.  Classes cover both hand-building techniques and wheel throwing and are available for anyone ages 16 or older. Tuition fees are  £305 for a 12 week standard class, and each session is  2.5 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 a 3-hour throwing class over 12 weeks on a Monday in our main studio area. The fee for the throwing class is £365 for 12 weeks (3 hours each class). There are 15 students and two teachers, so you can expect plenty of individual attention.

We also offer courses in our new 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 at the Leyton studio if you prefer to put aside a block of time to learn rather than attending a weekly class.
