Edinburgh Ceramics Workshop

People during ceramic workshop seating around table

The Edinburgh Ceramics Workshop is a practice pottery open to anyone with a passion for working with clay. We have monthly studio memberships and drop in sessions for people who are looking to develop their creative and technical pottery skills.

The workshop is open seven days per week and has recently moved to our new purpose designed large ceramic workshop in Leith.

Monthly membership starts at £70 per month. Three-hour sessions are £25.

The workshop is mainly aimed at people who have studied or are studying with us but we do welcome visiting potters and people who have studied elsewhere and need a space to practice to develop their skills.

We also welcome people who are on short term residencies.

To work independently in the workshop you will have completed our Foundation Level 2 course at least or be at that level of practice and able to work safely with all our workshop equipment and be able to recycle and prepare your own clay. You may be asked for a portfolio of images of recent work.

Members provide their own tools, clay and glaze materials.

ECW is not open to professional potters right now and we are not able to fire work from potters who are not members or students.
