Pottery Courses and Tuition: José Carvalho Ceramics

José Carvalho – Potter

‘I am a potter from Portugal and have been living in London for 10 years. My work covers a broad spectrum of both decorative and functional pieces. I use stoneware, earthenware, and Porcelain Clay. Recently I have been producing “V” and “U” shaped pieces with a volcanic textured glaze which I created. I enjoy the challenge of reproducing a glaze that would blend well with the pots I throw. I am pleased to say I am now set up in my new studio by Ravenscourt Park and taking bookings for pottery lessons and courses:

‘Introduction to Pottery’ – topics include:
Throwing, Pinch Pots, Coiling, Slab Technique, Tile Technique, Slip-casting Technique, and Pottery Decoration.

Group Tuition: £30 per hour
Groups for children, teenagers, and adults
Private Tuition: £45 per hour

‘The extent of what I cover depends on the ability of the students. Students can develop their chosen techniques in further courses. Prices are per student and include reading materials, clay and glazes. Your work can be taken home.

Summer and school holidays courses
Commissions most welcome

About Editor

Online editor at Keep Things Local


The company publishes four flagship magazines (Chelsea Locals, Chiswick Locals, Richmond Locals and Hammersmith Locals) with more launches planned in London and across the UK.

This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media. Get in touch to be featured in our Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring issues.
