Ceramics Workshop

Bookings are now open until 30 June 2022.

You can book a maximum of two sessions per week. If you need more time, please discuss with a technician.

The Ceramics Workshop has a large worktable and two side benches, suitable for working on hand building and sculpting with ceramics, and small amounts of drying space.  (Our space is not suitable for production pottery.)

Inductions are required in the Ceramics and Plaster Workshops and arranged at the start of your first Session. Please add ‘INDUCTION’ in the notes when booking. Induction takes around 15 minutes.

Three kilns are available – 2 larger kilns for bulk firings and one smaller test kiln.

Kilns are booked directly with ESW, subject to availability. Phone 0131 551 4490 or email office@edinburghsculpture.org with ‘KILN BOOKING ENQUIRY’ in subject line, at least one week in advance. (It is recommended to give as much notice as possible as there are times when demand on the kilns is high.)

Firings can be shared by up to 4 users, with the firings managed by ESW.

Kiln charges: £2.50 per day plus 30p per electrical unit used.

If you have a big project or important deadline coming up, please get in touch to discuss in advance so we can plan ahead.

The Ceramics Workshop is located in the same room but separated from the Plaster Workshop.

If you are thinking of joining as a Member in order to do ceramics projects we encourage you to arrange to come to see the facilities in advance so that you can understand what’s possible here and discuss your plans.

You can join to become a Member here.

Before booking, you will need to have received a Building Induction – Book a Building Induction,
