  • 6 hours’ supported practice (2 x 3 hour sessions) per month
  • Personal storage allocation (W40 x D40 x H50)
  • Technical support and guidance in session hours
  • Subscriber’s rates for firing, for items made start to finish at SSW

We currently have space available for Regular Practice. To reserve a space complete the online form here.

We anticipate demand for Regular Practice will be high, as such we don’t keep a waiting list. If you are interested in getting involved with ceramics at SSW we recommend you check out our Courses and 1:1 sessions, and sign up to our mailing 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.

Subscribers can book their sessions via the Subscribers’ page.

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.
