Can I fire work that I've made at home in the studio's kilns?

Unfortunately, we do not fire work that has been made from outside our studio here at Clay Trap.

How much experience do I need to use the open access sessions?

We ask that you are confident and self sufficient enough to work on your chosen project without the need for tuition. The sessions are supported by a technician who can guide you with best use of the studio equipment. The shared environment creates a supportive atmosphere where skills and techniques are often improved upon through discussion with other studio users.
