If you want to work independently and have some prior experience, you can hire space and have use of the wheel, work bench, small tools, and have your work fired. Studio hire can be booked in blocks of three hours, in advance (up to 18 hours before each session). It is an inclusive price- workspace, materials and firings are all included. For more regular use our new membership includes free access to studio hire each month; please see the membership page for details.
This service is aimed at keen amateurs who would like occasional use of the studio; for handbuilding, press moulding or wheel throwing. The membership is suited for those who want to use the studio more regularly. Basic materials are provided, and some technical support if needed. Firing is done for you but only for work made at the studio (we don’t offer a separate firing service for work made elsewhere). We use earthenware clay and glazes, and stoneware. This service is untutored, and you will need to have attended a course/training previously (this doesn’t have to have been with us) and have basic skills with clay as a minimum. We also offer individual tuition if you need it, see website for details. Temporary shelf space is available for work in progress.
If you haven’t been to the studio before, please email before booking so we can discuss your requirements and make sure it is the right service for you.
