Memberships

If you have found it difficult to find studio space in Belfast or have found working from your own studio a bit isolating then working at Belfast Ceramics Studio as a member could really help, through access to equipment as well as being with other makers. Bouncing ideas off each other, learning new skills as well as just a bit of company so you don't get cabin fever!

There are 3 types of memberships available at the Belfast Ceramics Studio so that people at different stages of their making have access to a well equipped pottery studio.

The only extra costs are the clay, available to buy in-house which are ES5, St Patrick's buff, terracotta or porcelain, full time members can bring non-studio clays in as long as they have been tested.

As it is a shared space we don't currently have the capacity for production potters.

If you need more time in the studio it is charged at £7.50 per hour beyond your membership.
