Welcome to Studio 9

 

Studio 9 is a hidden little creative oasis in the village of Pickwick, Corsham in Wiltshire, UK. It’s a place to relax, socialise, make friends and share your stories all whilst making pottery. Well-being is at the heart of what happens here.

Pottery is a catalyst for so much more – feeling great, slowing down and making time for ourselves. Doing something that feels extremely nourishing is what Studio 9 is all about.

You can come along to Studio 9 and enjoy regular pottery classes, workshops and private tuition as well as bring your family or friends for group bookings. However you choose to spend time here, you will be made very welcome and I really look forward to meeting you and potting with you.

Had a wonderful 2 hour session with Jane. As a complete novice I was unsure what to expect but Jane made me feel totally at ease and has a wonderful teaching style. I was thrilled with my finished result after my first session.

Lovely morning spent with Jane learning how to throw a gorgeous pot and decorate it. Jane was super patient, a great teacher with a warm and friendly manner. I will definitely be booking again.

I had a private class with Jane today, 20th of May 2024. I’ve only been learning pottery about 6 months. It was a really wonderful two hours. Jane is so easy to learn from. I made 3 press mould dishes and Jane was so patient with me. I am delighted with the results. Jane also gave me practical tips like how to hold the potters knife and how to achieve rounded edges when finishing off. Jane shared her knowledge about potting in general. Her studio is spacious and comfortable. I came away from the lesson full of confidence, ready to implement the learning. I am going to book other sessions with her.

Remember the best teacher you had at school? For whatever reason you remember them as outstanding, you probably remember every syllable they ever uttered to you, every minute they spent on or with you; you likely consider your life unequivocally better for the time you spent with them. Jane is that teacher for ceramics.I booked a morning of pottery for a friend's birthday. We all agreed it was an absolutely brilliant way to spend a Sunday morning. We arrived almost clueless and left having made something we were proud of, something we can't wait to see glazed and finished, something we can't wait to use and show people. It is a wondrous feeling to go from unable to having learned something.Jane's workshop is literally and figuratively warm. The majestic log burner belches out heat and Jane warmly welcomes you to the studio that is also her home. Effortlessly, Jane learns names, asks questions, remembers things about each attendee; everyone feels valued and accommodated.Within the time constraints we had, each plain slab of clay was transformed into a wildly different vessel. Each of us felt nurtured, encouraged and free to try whatever we liked. More than just turning a flap of clay into something you can quaff coffee from, you focus on nothing else.We all left feeling calmed, peaceful and happy. In focusing on, caring for and developing something so simple as a flat slab of clay into a usable vessel, you have no time or head-space for anything else. Phones? No. Work worries? No. The state of the world? No.If someone suggested you could go to Corsham for a couple of hours on a Sunday morning to make a cup and emerge feeling entirely better than you did, you'd doubt them at best and probably tell them where to go... You can!Jane is a person you feel lucky to have been taught by and wish all teachers were like. I'd go back and do the same again. I'd go back and do something else. I'd recommend it to anyone, even sceptics. Very little goes on your headstone and the really important things are those you remember. I'll remember making a cup with Jane very vividly. An added bonus is that I did it with friends and have something to show for it.I challenge you to find the time, spend the money, make the thing and regret it - you won't.

Had a 2 hour session with Jane, she's an amazing teacher, very hands on session and Jane's explanations of the processes gave me a good understanding of what we was trying to achieve. I enjoyed it so much I've signed up for a regular class. Thank you Jane you're brilliant. Throughly recommend to anyone who's interested.

I booked in for a couple of hours of tuition with Jane and I threw my first ever pot on the wheel. Jane is a fantastic teacher and I would highly recommend her. She’s very clear with her instructions and reassuring all the way through the process. I found working with the clay to be very therapeutic and quickly switched off all other thoughts. I am so pleased with my bowl and it will be used everyday. Thanks Jane

Jane is a brilliant teacher! She carefully broke down each step in the process of throwing a cylindrical pot and made it manageable, achievable and really enjoyable. I would thoroughly recommend her 1-1 tutorials.

Had a lovely 2 hour private tuition session with Jane and absolutely loved it! I'd never thrown on the wheel before and I managed to throw a pot! Really easy steps to follow, and Jane lets you do it all yourself, which I found was a great way to learn.

Spent a 1:1 2hr. pottery throwing session with Jane yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. She has a clear and relaxed teaching style that enables you to produce an impressive pot by the end of the session. The studio was light and bright with an effective wood burner to keep you warm. Looking forward to picking up my creation after firing.

We had a great morning with Jane yesterday. She gave very clear instructions and guided us through the process of throwing a pot. We both had a real sense of achievement at the end. Jane was friendly and encouraging. We would definitely recommend her. The studio was a warm, calm space and has parking right outside.

My mum and I have just spent the loveliest 2 hours hand building a beautiful pot, under Jane’s expert supervision. We did not imagine we’d be able to create anything like we did. We fully recommend the private tuition, and had such a great time, I’m thinking of signing up for the regular classes. Thank you Jane!

Absolutely brilliant day! Jane is a wealth of knowledge, the course teach a range of techniques using slips which I will definitely carry forward in what I make! If you are looking for a surface decoration course in ceramics, look no further!! Will definitely be back!

We both loved the lesson with Jane today - such a great thing to step out of normal life for a while and learn something new and creative. Jane is a great teacher - warm, patient and knowledgeable and made us both feel at ease. We were so pleased with pots we managed to create using the wheel. Thanks Jane

Had a fantastic zoom session with Jane, then when we dropped off our pottery to be fired we ended up buying a couple of pots/vases as they were just so beautiful!

Possibly one of my most favourite memories ever. What’s not to love about a hands on creative clay class followed by the most sumptuous and delicious vegetarian brunch... literally heaven 😍

Jane has a fabulous easy going coaching style of teaching. I have never handled clay in any form before but Jane enabled me to throw a couple of creditable pots on her wheel within a couple of hours... all my own work. A fantastic experience. Thanks Jane

I brought my son to do a jug work shop and we both had a wonderful time with this hands on creative workshop. Jane is lovely, very kind and attentive, guiding us through the creative process and even making tea along the way! The workshop was a cosy space filled with Jane’s amazing ceramics and we were both so proud of our beautiful unique creations when they were finished, we will treasure them forever!! Would definitely recommend this to anyone old or young, we will certainly be back for more!!
