We have added courses in ‘Pulling Handles’ and ‘Colouring Clay’ in October
Wheels and benches can be booked in 3hr slots for working independently, Monday- Thursday:
Saturdays and Sundays 10am- 1pm
You can book sessions individually or in blocks, so for example if you book three consecutive sessions you could use the pottery between 12.30 and 9.30 and you can book sessions up to a month in advance, so that you can plan ahead.
During sessions you will have access to:
a range of press moulds
a slab roller
MATERIALS AND FIRING
Members are charged for materials when work is fired. We fire to 1190 and charge £7.50 per kg, dry weight, including clay and slip and £12.50 per kg if the piece includes underglazes and glazes. A large mug costs £2-3.
Our studio clay is Earthstone 05, a versatile clay that fires to an almost white colour. We have a range of coloured slips and Amaco glazes and underglazes.
If you are booking access sessions and you are not a member you will need complete an induction, just to ensure you can safely use the facilities. We will carry out your induction during your first session, it will take around 15 minutes, once you’ve booked the session drop us an email to let us know it’s your first time and we’ll make sure a technician is free to meet you.
