Who is membership for?

Claypit Membership is for anyone who has the skills and confidence to work independently with clay. How you gained these skills isn’t important. You could be self-taught, have studied at an institution or evening classes or at the Claypit! Membership is offered at the discretion of the Claypit as you will need to demonstrate to us that you have the required skills and understanding. If you are not sure get in touch!

What are the benefits?

No studio set up cost! No more working from the kitchen table/spare room, or alone in a cold damp shed! As a Claypit Member you will work alongside others who have a passion for clay in a warm friendly studio. Join in, share skills and ideas. Help us build, shape and nurture our fledgling clay community.
