What's On

Self-Guided Studio Access

Wednesdays and Fridays

These untaught sessions offer access to our fully equipped pottery studio for those with some knowledge – for example those who are taking our Six-week Introduction to Pottery course.

Potters can use our full range of facilities, including the wheels. Tutor Ruth Waller is on hand throughout the session to assist with any technical queries you might have, however please note that this is not a taught class.

We require potters to use our clay and glazes.

Clay is charged at £5 for a small, 3kg bag.

We charge one fee for glazing and firing, which is charged by object size.

6” cubed – £4
9” cubed – £6
12” cubed – £10


These sessions are run by Ruth Waller.

Ruth is a contemporary textile artist and half of the creative partnership Waller Hewett. Waller Hewett create artwork and installations which combine art, design and craft, and have won them numerous awards including ‘Best in Show’ at the London Craft Fair.

She is a highly experienced tutor and teaches across the Harley Foundation’s education programme.
