We are proposing to open our Members Workshop as part of our Member Access Sessions (still running Thursdays and Fridays no change). Members Workshop is a separate space and has a capacity for 6 people at a time. The uses for the room will be specific to user bookings ie. 4 places available for Wheel Throwing and 2 spaces available for Hand Building making a total of 6 at any one session. Some sort of radio button will be necessary to select wheel or hand booking in this room.


  • Monday to Friday at 10am, 1pm and 6pm
  • Saturday 10am and 1pm


When booking the Members Workshop you will need to follow the usual Member Access Session booking, sign in and cleaning protocols. When using this space when a class is in progress we ask that you refrain from entering the teaching workshop. If you do need to access this workshop please seek permission from the attending teacher. Entry to the Members Workshop will be via the courtyard door and preferably not through the teaching workshop. Access to this room is made possible during teaching times and we ask that you finish your activities in adherence to class completion times. The attending teacher will be responsible for your health and safety while onsite and locking the room after use.
