7 Spot Pottery is a 250sq.ft ceramic studio set up by Pascal Nichols for his own ceramic practice and for others to learn and make ceramic art.
Pascal currently runs drop in sessions, courses and bespoke workshops at the studio.
Studio equipment includes: 2 toploading kilns, an Extruder, a slab roller, and 2 potters wheels.
I run 6-week courses for mixed abilities, and one-off workshops, click the link above for details.
DROP IN SESSIONS
Wednesdays 1pm-4pm, £20 for one session, or £45 for three sessions (to be used within 2 months of the first session). Glazed work is charged at £3.50 per kg.
Please contact Pascal before attending.
These sessions are ideal for those with some experience of ceramics who want to do their own thing. There is no tuition offered in these sessions but Pascal will be available for technical advice.
KEY MEMBERSHIP: £75 per month with £150 returnable deposit.
The 7 Spot membership gives ceramicists flexible 24hr access to the pottery studio and equipment, and kiln firings. There is a small membership of no more than 6 members which allows for everyone to have some workspace when the studio is busy. Members are encouraged to work cooperatively to share the space.
Members purchase their own materials (basic clays can be bought from the studio at cost price) and pay for the weight of glaze fired at cost price. Each member is provided with a storage shelf measuring approximately 100cm x 40cm x 30cm.
We have no maximum usage quotas, but ask that potential members are willing to work together to use the space collaboratively at any busy periods. Most of us work in clay as a part of a wider practice and as such the space is not suitable for production potters.
Please email us to for further information, and to apply for membership
