Workshop Access Sessions for CPS members

To use the Canberra Potters workshop facilities as a member you must meet minimum pottery experience levels, i.e. have completed a minimum of one course at Canberra Potters, or equivalent. The satisfactory completion of a Health & Safety (H&S) Orientation is mandatory for unaccompanied visits, as are annual refreshers for continued access and to attend Workshop Access Sessions. No satisfactory orientation or refresher–no access.

Members who have successfully completed a Health & Safety Orientation have access to the workshop and glazes during Workshop Access Sessions (Glaze Shed access is subject to class use). Unfortunately we cannot allow one-off access to the glaze shed, or grant access to people without the relevant experience. 

For access, members are expected to:

  • book and pay for your session online prior to attending
  • bring your own tools and clay (there is no capacity to store these)
  • sanitise on arrival and check in with the Check-In CBR QR code
  • maintain your distance
  • do not attend your session if unwell, and
  • clean up after your session.


Orientation sessions

Email [email protected] to book a place in an orientation. Attendance needs to be booked, if no places are booked a session won’t go ahead. The orientation session will take approximately an hour.

Access times

Workshop access is currently available during Workshop Access Sessions and Members Workshop Access. These sessions need to be booked online through this website under the Members Access Sessions section

Member Access and Keys

Keys are no longer issued to members other than teachers and staff.

Members still have plenty of opportunity to access the facility through Workshop Access Sessions which can be booked and paid for online. This ensures you will get appropriate space and attend a safe, clean and secure workshop environment. It helps us meet our current health guidelines and ensures members receive fair and equitable access to our facility and services.

Members who still hold an old workshop key are able to return them to the office during business hours to obtain your refund.
