Atelier Kleie: what do users think?


Jennifer McCormack: My boyfriend and I recently completed an introduction to ceramics workshop here with Ruta and it was really enjoyable. It far exceeded our expectations, my boyfriend even enjoyed it, saying he would like to do it again. The workshop was over two Saturdays, two hours each time, this was ideal for my short attention span. It is a very practical class and we covered so much. We immediately began experimenting with the clay and trying different techniques. We moulded the clay by hand, used various tools, painted our creations, marbled the clay, used the pottery wheel and much more. We ended up with multiple "dishes/cups/bowls" (some, actually presentable!) as a result of trying out the different methods. It was really fun and Ruta was very welcoming, full of great advice and help but she gives you plenty of freedom to get creative. Highly recommended.

Michael Keyzer: What a great workshop! Great teacher, makes you feel at ease the moment you step in and is a perfect guidance during the session.Super highly recommended!

SANDRA G: Excellent introduction and session with Ruta. Nice to be able to create something straight away. Highly recommended

Axelle Ahanhanzo: Lovely time at the Atelier. Lots of space, corona safe and great instructor.

Studio Pansa KNSM: what do users think?


Neelam Kumar: Lovely studio where you can work by yourself. A lot of space in the upstairs department and a pleasant atmosphere overall. Definitely slightly overpriced. Would have also loved some more inspiring engagement and community feeling.

Ruby Delaney: I worked as a volunteer mentor here before covid and have always wanted to share my thoughts about pansa. I think it is important to note that as a mentor I was a young artist being exploited for free labour in the name of having access to highly inaccessible facilities. The memberships are grossly overpriced so as a student this was my only option. I quickly learned that the management is poor, chaotic and unprofessional. I was expected to work and like a dog with no pay, and I still had to pay for all my materials so as a worker at the studio I was technically paying them!!! As a result of the expenses, the people who hang around the studio are not a proper reflection of what Ceramics is all about. I would have loved to find a real community here but it seemed everyone at pansa was only interested in themselves. This place lacks authentic connect and creativity, sadly it is but a thinly veiled example of capitalism and classicism.

zooey glass: I took an intensive wheel throwing course. the teacher was not that experienced in teaching and attending to student needs. after one full week I still was not sure about some of the central aspects of the process and I know I am not the only one because many attendees were lost during the course. she did not provide additional perspectives that might help unless you insisted. The teacher also said that she would send some videos that might help in understanding the process but those links never arrived. At the end of the course, I had an extra piece and they limit the pieces to be fired to 6 (and mind you that some attendees have less than six). The teacher did not offer me to fire that piece as well but I respected the rules and fairness at the time and I did not mind coming to the studio to work on other stuff so I decided I would either get a stamp card or membership for 2 months. The teacher commented on how full the studio was and for me to bear this in mind. (You reserve a spot and I never had an issue with reservations so now I am not sure what this remark meant). The first day of my membership I filled in a form that requires them to approve so that I can use my own underglazes (since the studio only provides maybe 8-10 glazes... thanks I guess). They did not tell me if the brand I told them was okay, so I reminded them. It has been three months and I still do not know if those underglazes are approved by them or not. Maybe 3 weeks in my membership- I asked the wheel throwing teacher for my extra piece that she put aside. She had no idea where it was and did not even bother to look around the studio with me. Unprofessional attitude, bad communication, subpar supervision during classes, you need to buy extra glazes and underglazes if you want to decorate your pieces and might not know if it is okay to use them + they have thrown away my piece without my knowledge :)
Response: Hi Zooey (Çağla Çınar) In addition to sending you an email, we would like to reply to put your reviews in perspective. On communication in the studio: Unfortunately sometimes things take time and mouth to mouth communication is a must. As a communal studio we need proactive input from members and students. We feel that if we would have spoken to you personally and sooner we could have avoided a lot of the irritations and situation you have encountered. On the Course: We understand that the communication you had with the teacher did not go as smoothly as you would have liked. We are sad to hear this. Teachers try to communicate as clearly as possible but they do need to know if something is slowing a student down. The only way is to directly ask them, like you mentioned before. We will check why the links to the extra clips did not reach you, we will also check the feedback we received from other participants to see if they had the same issues with teacher student communications during the class. I think communication was a mayor thing in this case. We try to accommodate all our members but we need a certain amount of input from the community as well. On the Membership: I am sorry to hear you are not happy with the facilities we offer in our members side of the studio. We believe the facilities at Studio Pansa are on par with other international studio's and in some areas we really go the extra mile. This resulted in a very loyal and active member base and the studio being one of a kind in Amsterdam. We give our members a lot of agency and possibilities but this needs a lot of communication from both sides verbally as well as via email. We understand that as a new member this can be daunting and therefore we're always ready to answer a quick physical questions and discuss possibilities trough the mentor system we have in place. It is a shame that these miscommunications happened to you and the effect they had on your Studio Pansa experience. Kind regards Best, Team Pansa

Anindya S: No empathy towards emergency situations and poor complain handling - What happened was I had to cancel last minute due to sickness of both myself and my partner. He called them explaining the situation and they said someone would call him back. No one did. Two days later, he called again for the 2nd time and answered by a rude staff. Since there was no offered resolution, he even went to visit the studio (with infected eyes, the reason why we had to cancel last minute) and still there was no offered resolution. They didn't have empathy towards emergency situation like sickness and didn't offer any compensation, even though the spots were booked weeks before. Fyi, nobody wants to get sick after they're looking forward to join an event for weeks. The workshop rate is not cheap either. I noticed that this had happened before and probably will happen again in the future. They kept using "but we're a small business" card to get away from it. I have met other small businesses who are more understanding with emergency situations on the workshop day. They didn't deserve 1 star, they deserve 0 star.
Response: Dear Anindya S, We are sad to see your one star review. Could you maybe reach out to us via our Info email about what went wrong? We want to use the feedback to improve our systems and communication. Kindly Team Pansa

Joanna Liu: I was looking for a pottery studio in Amsterdam to work independently, wasn't sure if Studio Pansy would be a fit so I did the 10 hour stamp card as a trial run. Some red flags for me.. 1. There isn't any storage for greenware or bisque ware besides your shelf which you have to store all your clay and tools, which means you can't really throw a lot of pieces at once. 2. Firing takes a really long time. Seems like there's a lot of classwork, and if there isn't space on the glaze or bisque shelf, you just have to keep it on your member shelf until space clears up. This seems super inconvenient since I don't live close to the studio so I have to keep checking if theres open space? 3. Spray booth was broken when I went, also lots of glazes weren't replenished. Overall there weren't a lot of communal tools, communal throwing bats, or color slips/underglazes. Not even communal plaster bats to use while I throw (you have to buy it from them). My previous studio in San Francisco provided all these amenities. I asked the studio for a refund for the unused time, since there was no way of knowing how the studio operates unless you do an orientation which cost 20€. They never responded to me.

Romina M: Love this place, my absolutely favorite pottery studio and probably the most beautiful one. You can take courses or become a member. Work with clay and ceramics just as you like. The ppl there are also very nice!Once I also brought a dog with me and that went super fine.
Response: Great to hear! Thanks for the review, Romina.

Sharon S: I am so happy to have found Studio Pansa! I spend much of my time in front of a computer for work and was missing the feeling of clay in my hands. Having done ceramics before (though some time in the past) I signed up for a studio membership and have really appreciated the space (atmosphere, people, equipment). As I get back into working with clay, I've appreciated being able to get everything I need at the studio itself, from buying clay to borrowing tools. I recommend it highly!

Gigi 2483: Super nice space with very friendly nice people. I use the studio as a workspace where I do my own ceramic work. For that the studio is really perfect. I can highly recommend Studio Pansa.
Response: Wonderful. That's what we like to hear.

Viktorija Valiulyte: It is not only a studio to work or learn but a great community of talented and highly experience members. Always super welcoming as well both fun and calm perfect to focus on your masterpiece or get inspired by the others. Highly recommending

Marieke: Had the most amazing 8-week throwing course! Denise was a great teacher, I learned a lot!

Kaneko Ceramics Amsterdam: what do users think?


Sean: I've been attending pottery lessons with Jassu for 6 months now. I started as a total beginner and a little nervous but Jassu is a really great teacher and gets you engaged with the process from the first lesson making cool things. I found its a really great way to boost your imagination and doing this has helped me even with my day to day work as an engineer. I've just finished my latest piece, a wine cooler! I love it!

Camellia Yang: Super good places, Jassu is nice and teaches all the basic skills of ceramic making in a proper way! I heard a lot. The picture is what I made after 36 hours of practicing.
Response: Thank you for your message. I try more !!

Gigi 2483: With over 40 years of experience Jassu is a highly skilled professional and great teacher. I am going to his studio since more than a year and have realized many different projects and gained a lot of technical know-how. He is a wonderful teacher that loves to share his knowledge, teaches you discipline and helps to make the best out of your projects. I can highly recommend Jassu‘s ceramic studio.

Sophie: Jassu is an amazing ceramic teacher who shares his knowledge and technique while helping you achieve your personal projects. I have been going for more than a year and have clearly improved my skills on the wheel

Anouk Swart: Kaneko Studios is a magical place for learning the techniques of pottery and ceramics art. Every lesson is an enriching experience, and Jassu is a sincere and very knowledgable master. He comes with a lot of experience, and always has a story around the topics we learn, including historical and background information. I have been going here now over the past year and a half and have made homeware and vases, learned several techniques that help me explore the different sides. Practicing here will give you the tools to find your own style. Furthermore, Jassu's wife completes the scene with beautiful ikebana pieces after done in according to the season or work, and their warm hospitality makes this a unique place. If you are looking to commit to ceramics, this is the place.

Saikou colley: Am saikou Colley i live in Gambia I am also doing pottery work in the Gambia her but I want to join you guys so that i can't extend my pottery classs

Art Ceramics Studio - Gillian Smith: what do users think?


Sacheranna: Anybody looking for ceramic lessons in Amsterdam? Gillian’s pottery classes are fantastic. I started from scratch and learnt so much in a really nice environment. Gillian is an amazing host and teacher who gave me the opportunity to learn my first pottery skills. The overall atmosphere is calm, relaxed and fun. I could not recommend more highly :)
Response: Thanks Anna, you made so much progress in such a short time and produced the most amazing ceramic pieces of work.

Ileana Malacrino: Gillian is the best! I started going to Gill's pottery classes after the lockdown lift. During the first course, Gill shows you all the different techniques whilst allowing you to have full creative freedom. The classes always have warm energy & endless cups of tea & biscuits ;)

Vicki King: Great atmosphere! A wonderful variety of work comes out of Gill's studio. Gill is extremely encouraging and patient; she has a solution for everything!
Response: Thank you Vicki. I'm happy to help you with your ceramic pieces, you make top quality work with attention to the details.

Gillian Evans: Great classes in a cozy studio on the beautiful Lauriergracht! Gillian is a sweet lady and super teacher. I'm just a beginner in her class and have already learned skills to make some beautiful pieces. She takes the time to speak with every student, thinking through their ideas and making suggestions using her years of valuable experience. I definitely recommend taking a ceramics class here, no matter what your skill level.

Michiel van Pelt: The great thing about Gillian's classes is the variety of techniques taught in classes with students who are all working on their own creative pieces. It is always stimulating and challenging and such fun in a warm and inviting atmosphere, where we share ideas and enjoy each other's successes.

Beth Irvine: Gill has just moved to a lovely studio on the Lauriergracht which is fully equipped with different types of clay, glazes, mould-making materials, a kiln and spraying area. The people attending a mixture of ages, nationalities and abilities which gives the classes a very relaxed feel and both English and Dutch are spoken. If you are a beginner Gill will take you through various different processes such as coiling, pinching, slabbing, modeling, moulding-making & glazing and she has a good library of books for ideas and tips. If you need lots of help, Gill is there to give it, however if you are more experienced then you are left alone to get on with your latest project. I would highly recommend these classes as a great way to channel your creativity in clay with the opportunity to meet some lovely people at the same time!

Isadora Pompa: Gillian Smith is an excellent teacher. I recommend her studio to learn how to create wonderful ceramics.
Response: And you are are wonderful student. Thank you for your review and photos

Christopher Barnett: I have been going to Gills Studio for some years now. Gill is a relaxed, informative highly skilled and patient teacher and her studio is always both inspiring and fun. Thank you Gill.

Keramiek Atelier Amsterdam: what do users think?


Amanda Perino: Just completed the 4-day porcelain workshop here and loved every second of it. We were a small group and everyone shared ideas and encouragement under the professional and creative lead of Suus, Vera, and Mokum, the studio dog. This is my second workshop here and I can't wait for the next one. I highly recommend if you are looking for something fun and creative to do with friends, or alone (you'll make friends).
Response: ❤️

Valentine Bouhier: Both Alexandra and Suus have been so lovely and welcoming! The two-day wheel-throwing workshop was a great way to (re)discover clay and the wheel. The fact that there were few participants (we were 2) was also a major bonus. The Atelier is a bright, relaxing place perfect to get inspiration and unleash your creativity. All in all I am thrilled by this experience and hope to become a regular ‘student’ there in the coming months ☺️
Response: Thank you so much! Really looking forward to welcoming you again in the studio 💛

Elissa Fox: Beautiful light, bright studio to learn ceramics or practice your skills. Suus(the owner) is very knowledgeable and will step in if you have questions or need help but is also happy to let you work on your own. Dog friendly environment and little Mokum is just the sweetest as well! Excited to continue with ceramics at this location.

soma ray: This is such a great find for me! It's an oasis from walking distance of westergas. The lessons are well paced and the ambience very enjoyable.
Response: Thank you so much Soma! 💕

Gabi T: Such a gorgeous, well-lit studio with all the modcons and Suus, the owner, is the loveliest teacher. I know the basics now so my studio time is spent getting creative and doing as I please. I truly love my time there - the process of designing, building, painting, and glazing is so relaxing and a lot of fun. Suus has ALL the materials you could want (including a beautiful range of glazes!!) and is very helpful in sourcing anything unavailable. She provides all the help I need and I've been watching her instruct the beginners class with such clear guidance and patience. Highly recommend!

Hedi: Excellent place for any one who is interested in pottery. Suus is very kind and takes good care of your pieces. Very efficient, a very bright and beautiful studio , very well organized with great firing services. Highly recommend!
Response: Thank you so much Hedi!

Lucy Oates: Excellent group workshop! We had a fantastic half day - would highly recommend doing this as an activity with friends/family/colleagues. Suus was super helpful without being overbearing. A fun activity, with the added bonus of our lovely products! We'll definitely be back!

Glen Balekjian: Lovely studio, bright and comfortable and super fun classes!Suus is a friendly and knowledgeable teacher. A great plan to disconnect from screens and connect with your creativity.

Jarryd Wafer: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueWonderful place to work on ceramics. Great location and workshop, friendly people, and nice environment. Whether ceramics is brand new and you want to learn and have access to everything you need, or you are experienced and just need the space, materials, and a kiln, this is a great place for any level maker.

Jonas Kalter: Suus is great and I am learning so much during her class. The studio is beautiful and has all needed equipment. I highly recommend Suus' class!
