About Us 

Hi, we are the Ceramics Society :D We want to bring our members relaxing and social events, as well as the expensive world of ceramics (at the most student friendly prices possible). We are excited to announce that our society is massively expanding this year! Our events include internally run, low-cost social events (such as Air-dry Clay and Painting and glazing Bisque-ware) and we also work with 3 different companies and studios to bring you a variety of skill based workshops. We have formed a working relationship with these companies and are heavily subsidised from several grants in order to bring you the cheapest prices possible.

Our membership will give you access to discounts, socials and all of our ticketed events!

What if I'm a beginner? / What if I am experienced?

This society's aim is to bring the world of clay to our members - regardless of if you're a complete beginner or a master potter. All of our sessions are tutored - so get ready to expand your knowledge and have fun! If you're experienced, let your tutors know and they can push you and help you to get even better!

Do we have to pay for Clay?

All of our tickets include material costs unless otherwise stated (such as the 12-week course with Kiln Rooms). All of our sessions that use clay need the proper facilities - and this is why we run these sessions with companies! Check the ticket description for the event if you want more information.
