"Open Access" Studio Membership

“Open Access” Studio Membership

Now Pre-booking! 

For 4 years Illyria Pottery has offered courses and workshops for those interested in learning about pottery making in Oxford. But after you’ve taken a few of our courses, what’s the next step? (We know it’s addictive!) And what if you already have a good working knowledge of pottery and just need a place to make without the tuition? That’s where our new “Open Access” Studio Membership programme comes in.


We’re excited to grant exclusive access to the Illyria Pottery studio for Access Members only. A limited number of studio spaces will be available for evening studio access starting in May. Access Members will be able to book in on 4, 4-hour pottery sessions per month. The sessions will be offered from 6 until 10 p.m. (Tue-Sat), so members can book in at times convenient for them. Booking a session guarantees a dedicated wheel available, though members are very welcome to handbuild, as well.


While most comparable programme’s add a clay surcharge, Illyria Pottery’s studio membership includes access to the studio and all materials (clays, glazes, and firings).


The membership will be offered on a 3 month basis (£175 per month).


If interested in being considered for membership, please email courses@illyriapottery.co.uk by 1 April with “Open Access” in the subject line. We'd advise expressing interest early, as we anticipate the spaces filling very quickly.
