The Harley Pottery Studio is currently closed. We plan that Open Access Thursdays will resume from the 20th May.

When we reopen, additional safety measures will be in place. This will include limiting the number of participants and asking you to pre-book your place before attending a class. We will also have socially distanced workstations, sanitised tools and equipment, and shorter sessions.

What is an Open Access ceramics studio?

Open access pottery sessions offer flexible studio space for those who can work independently, with a full range of ceramics facilities available including two kilns and six wheels.

Our Studio Manager Lynne Staniland provides supervision. However, please note tutorials are not available during the Open Access sessions. Keep an eye on our events listings for full details of our events, including sessions for painting pottery, and tutored ceramics classes. Join our mailing list to keep up to date.

We require all Open Access Thursdays attendees to clean their work area and equipment at the end of their session. We accept no responsibility if your work breaks in the kiln.

Please note that other activities may be taking place in the Pottery Studio at the same time as our Open Access sessions.

When visiting The Harley Pottery Studio, please report to a Gallery Reception on arrival.
