Weekly Intermediate Level Classes Tuesday / Thursday evenings, 6-9pm Thursday afternoons, 1-3.30pm £30 per person for 2.5 hours with a fee of £3 per kg clay used to cover material fees and firing. Work will be weighed at the end of the session and payment for clay is by bank transfer. (1kg would make roughly three mug-sized pinch pots, one medium coil pot, or two breakfast bowl-sized thrown pieces.)
Booking is flexible on a weekly basis. Sign up to the studio mailing list below to receive an email each Sunday detailing plans for workshops in the week ahead and reserve your spot. Payment is required upon booking by bank transfer. In order to accommodate smaller class sizes, you will be asked when booking which sessions you're available for and willing to attend in order of preference. While all requests will be prioritized, slots will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis if necessary. In order to stagger start/finish times, you will be given a 2.5 hour slot within the workshop session times, ie. 6-8.30pm or 6.30-9pm. There are four pottery wheels available for people with throwing experience to use. The time available on the wheel depends on the number of throwers at each session. Due to pressure on storage space there will be a strict six-week binning policy for work at each stage of making before it is reclaimed, used as a glaze test, or donated to other arts projects.
