Our Story

At House of Kaolin, we offer a relaxing, creative and inclusive space for anyone to explore ceramics in its many forms; either as a complete beginner working with clay for the first time or an experienced artist or creative looking to expand their skills and add a new medium to their practice. 

Kaolin (also known as china clay) is a fine white clay named after it's place of origin, Kao-Ling (Gaoling "high-ridge") in China. It's essential when making clay and widely used in the ceramics industry.

It's what we're named after. This material from the earth that brings us together - no hierarchy, just mud.

Our Founder

Sevak Zargarian

Sevak is a Central Saint Martins graduate with over ten years experience within the ceramics industry as an artist and teacher. Having worked in several different types of ceramic studios, Sevak is able to bring a new direction to ours. A focus on education and learning drives his passion for creating ceramics courses that offer you the opportunity to learn a new skill in inspiring surroundings. 

Having worked closely with artists at Camden Art Centre and Rochester Square for eight years, Sevak has gained an insight into ceramics from an artists' perspective, helping artists realise their ideas into final forms with clay, pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with ceramics; this lends itself to the classes he teaches and his vision for providing ceramics opportunities to all.
