GRASS HOPPER:- We operate a "grass hopper" system, whereby if you miss a class, you have the option to" jump" on to another session in the following weeks to catch up. In this way you will not loss any money due to holidays or illness. This system only works if you inform us of any sessions you are going to miss, so that we can offer them to another student waiting for a space.  Unfortunatley we can not operate the grass hopper system during the pandemic, but you are welcome to take clay home to complete work. You can also take advantage of the free sessions that we run during the year and use it as a ctch up session for any missed classes.
RAKU:- The Summer Barbeque Raku session is a popular event, which includes lots of food and flames.  You can see images of this event and pictures of the class work by clicking on the links at the bottom.
WINTER FEAST :- In Mid November when the classes have finished we organise an optional get-together where we eat, drink and merrily announce the winners of the Project Competition.
OPEN STUDIO:- On occasion we have an extended FREE FAMILY AND FRIENDS session, where you can spend time catching up on some work, or bringing along a friend or family member to explore the clay. These sessions are for members only and each student is responsible for any work their guest produces.
