Maxability was set-up by Anita and Emile Woolf as a charity in 2015, its formation was inspired by their son, Carl, who is a deaf and physically disabled person. To support him, and others, they set up ceramics / pottery classes so that physically or learning disabled adults can discover and develop their latent talents and artistic abilities.

The Maxability classes take place in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere at Flightways in Barnet, North London.
