LOAM Clay Studio rents open studio time and space to potters should current capacity permit new members.
LOAM offers open studio space for rent to individuals with enough experience to work independently, we require new members to have completed 3 6 week courses at LOAM. This is to ensure that you have a great experience working in our space as our staff are busy keeping the studio running and are often not available to answer questions or provide guidance. We appreciate your understanding.
You should be able to monitor your own pots, centre your own clay, are able to trim your pieces so they are not too thick, and experience glazing.

For our 1 shelf potters, this allows for more flexibility in having your own designated space to keep your work and allows you unlimited hours per month! Some additional information:
Members who choose to enrol in the new flat fee shelf membership will have existing hours credited towards their new flat monthly rate.
Please note that we are a pottery studio that aims to nurture learning, creativity and improvement. We hope that all our potters strive to improve from whatever level they are at. We cannot accommodate high volume production as we do not have the space or kiln capacity for this.
