Our brand new ceramic studio is a light and airy space equipt with two kilns, two potters wheels and work spaces for up to four people to work and maintain social distancing. Once restriction lift it will be limited to five people per session.
Clay Club is a relaxed creative evening, for those who want to develop new skills in ceramics, and those who want a social space to create in.
If you are new to ceramics, then we will take you through the basic techniques, from coiling to slab building. We also encourage you to bring in images of inspiration to help you develop your work.

Firing by the shelf
Shelf size: 60 x 32cm (half octagonal) Max height 10cm. If your work is taller than 10cm you will need 2 or maybe 3 shelves.
Your work will go into a communal firing, and you will need to wait till we have enough work to fill the kiln, (this could be up to a month). Every effort is made to check peoples work to ensure they do not explode. But we take no liability if your work is damaged during the firing or doesnt turn out as you expected
Please contact us before dropping of your work for firing.
