Studio Use

Open Access Studio

We offer a small number of open access studio memberships that allow people of all levels to come and use the studio independently and whenever suits them during our opening hours. Membership offers the opportunity to develop your pottery skills in the beautiful surroundings of the loam studio. Membership is designed for part-time potters and ceramicists.

Membership is offered on a two-tier basis depending on number of hours of access and number of kiln firings per month required. Included in the memberships are access to the studio’s equipment and tools, including the studio’s commercial glazes, along with a selection of clay for members to purchase. Each member will be allocated their own storage shelf, as well as access to communal storage.

All members must comply with the studio’s ‘Terms & Conditions’. To review these please click here.

Members: Booking Your Studio Time

Booking a pottery wheel is via our online booking system. Bookings must be made at least 24hrs in advance.
If a member wishes to hand-build or glaze, without the use of a wheel, we ask that you send an email to the studio with the requested studio use times at least 24hrs in advance.
This system ensures members always have space when arriving at the studio and ensures that the studio is staffed or access provided otherwise during this time. 
Cancellation of any bookings must be made at least 48hrs in advance.
