We have 12 spaces available for Regular Practice. When a new space becomes available we will advertise the space via our mailing list and social media. Spaces are offered on an application basis.
We anticipate demand for Regular Practice will be high, as such we don’t keep a waiting list.
Any person is eligible for Regular Practice. You do not need to have existing skills or experience in working in ceramics. We advise that you attend a Course before committing to Regular Practice to make sure it is for you, although this is not required.
How does it work?
Regular Practice sessions take place:
Thursdays, 10am – 1pm
Fridays, 10am -1pm
Fridays, 2pm – 5pm
A session lasts 3 hours and is supported by our Ceramics Technician. There will be between 1 and 3 people in each session, and you are free to book up to 2 sessions at any point in the month.
Your very first session will comprise of an induction to the workshop, including health and safety procedures, and some of the skills and processes we can support. Following this, you will be free to work at your own pace and a technician will be available in the session to support your learning. As it is a small group of people, you will get to know the other Regular Practice users – it’s a really friendly and supportive environment.
If you have any suggestions, questions or requirements relating to accessibility at SSW, please get in touch and we will make every effort to support you to visit.
