Gift Vouchers can be redeemed against any class bought on the Jo Davies website. Once you have purchased one the recipient can use the unique gift voucher code to subtract from the total at the checkout. See the guide to prices at the bottom of this listing.
Times and dates of classes are flexible dependent on experience level and availability of class slots - please see Class listings on this website for information about the types of classes we do or get in touch with the studio to enquire about dates and times if there is a specific day and time you have in mind. Alternatively, gift card recipients should purchase a class via the website and contact the studio to arrange this.
All the classes at the studio are taught either by Jo Davies (Master Classes for more experienced students) or one of her assistant tutors using her method of teaching for beginners.
All classes are intended for adults and most are private classes for 1 to 4 people. They can be treated as a one-off experience or block bookings of classes can be made.
The Classes at the Jo Davies Studio are some of the smallest wheel-throwing classes available with a maximum 4:1 ratio, student to tutor. The reason for this is so that students can make faster progress with the direct help of their tutor quickly. The classes have been designed by Jo in this way because of Jo’s long experience with students who came to her workshop after going to large wheel-throwing classes where they were often left waiting a long time for a tutor’s attention before being able to move forward. This frustration will never happen in our small classes as the maximum size of a class is 4 students, this means you will make progress faster.
Beginner's’ Classes take place on Saturdays and are pre-bookable private classes for up to 4 people. They are available for booking every week at the following time slots:
9:30-11:30am / 12:30-2:30pm / 3-5pm
All Saturday classes are private classes for 1 to 4 people.
Some Sunday classes are available. Please contact the studio or see the Sunday School listing under Classes for more information on set dates. Please check availability for these with the studio. Sunday classes are group classes on a set date and can be booked by individuals for £50 per person to take part in a 2 hour group class of up to 4 people.
Weekday classes are available for both private Master and beginners’ classes at flexible times, including some evenings, but all are subject to availability.

All tools and equipment are provided
Firing and glazing are included but you may want to glaze your work yourself so just let your teacher know on the day.
Things for students to consider ahead of the day:
You may want to bring an apron
Wear clothes you don't mind getting splashed - all materials wash out easily though.
We prefer our students to wear trousers or shorts rather than skirts because of the practicalities of throwing at a potter’s wheel (skirts can be a little physically restricting for this activity) but if you’re happy then we’re happy.
Arrive with short fingernails - this is very helpful when throwing and long fingernails can really get in the way of your enjoyment of the process.
Please plan your journey to the studio so you can arrive on time. Classes cannot go on beyond the allocated time and we want you to have the maximum amount of enjoyment from the class.
The Class will take place at the Jo Davies Studio at the Chocolate Factory, Farleigh Place, London, N16 7SX. MAP
Your place on a gift class should be booked on a day you are able to attend. This is because we often have to turn away customers when our class schedule is fully booked and we don’t like to have gaps if we don’t need to as we want to make sure as many people as possible can enjoy a class here at the studio. If you need to re-schedule your class then this is possible up to 7 days prior to the day of the class, after this point you may forfeit your class according to the discretion of the studio. The gift class cannot be exchanged for cash.
If the class has not yet been booked by the gift card recipient then a gift class can be exchanged for an item or items from the Jo Davies Ceramics collection up to the value of the class. Any difference in price above the total value must be paid.
Cancellation of a class by the Jo Davies Studio will incur a full refund or postponement of the class according to the preference of the customer.
Purchasing this digital gift card creates a unique code. The gift card recipient can enter this code at checkout to subtract the gift card value from their order total.
This gift card should be used within 6 months from the date of purchase.
