The Pottery Membership

Want a home away from home to take your pottery practice to the next level? We exist to create a fun and friendly space for like-minded clay lovers to improve their craft with the freedom to practice at their own pace. If you’ve fallen in love with the medium and want to continue refining your skills, come and use our creative pottery space. You can continue to practice at your own pace. We offer membership of our shared studio and use of our equipment. (wheels, slab roller, tools), providing access to a communal work space. Whether you are just starting out in clay, or an experienced artist looking for a studio in which to develop your work, a studio membership at Iris & Dora offers the space to grow in your artistic practice. Anyone with sufficient experience to work self-directed is welcome to apply. Our aim is to support new and existing ceramicists in furthering their practice. 

  • Memberships are designed for hobbyist potters who have basic pottery skills and know their way around a studio.
  • Our focus is on process and practice rather than production; because of this, we encourage members to only fire what they love!
