We welcome our current students to use our Open Access studio facility.


We are currently operating Open Access sessions on:

      - Wednesday evening from                   6.30pm- 9.30pm
      - Friday afternoon from                         1.30pm  -4.30pm    

We are now selling individual hours @ £3 per hour with a minimum purchase of 10 hrs for £30.00.

These hours can then be used any time that suits you within the set session times, and within the 12 week term only, they can’t be carried over to future terms.. More than 10 hrs can be purchased if you wish. Once you have made your payment of £30 you will be issued with a card that will be stamped every time you book your hours. Please get Fiona to stamp your card at the beginning of your sessions on Tuesday and Friday or Sara Crannage on Wednesday evenings. As before the sessions are limited to 10 students and there will be 30 places available for this scheme.

We ask you to respect the system with no commercial production please.

How to book onto the scheme:

To join the open access scheme please email Fiona on info@318ceramics.co.uk to confirm that you would like to join and will be paying the £30, this enables to monitor the number of students signing up.  Payment should be by bank transfer to the normal Farnham Pottery Trust bank account.

How to book your individual hours.

To pre book your hours please write your name on the weekly open access form which faces you as you walk up the stairs to the workshop. There will always been two weeks available so you can plan ahead. Please try not to email Fiona about booking sessions.

Storage space is limited at the Pottery. We ask that no personal equipment is left in the studios and all work in progress is left in the allocated Open Access area and is clearly marked with your name.   Unfortunately we cannot offer storage in damp cupboards, so worked needs to be properly wrapped.  There are currently no facilities available for glazing the work independently.

Please note:  Open Access is only available to those students currently attending a course at 318 Ceramics.
