We have clay available at this firing ranges which members can purchase from the volunteer who is opening a members session.
We do not offer a firing service or membership for firing only, members that have applied for membership and do not engage with the community or use the space in the first 3 months except for firing will be contacted and your membership may be cancelled as membership spaces are limited. Due to the fact that all our firings are done by volunteers we cannot guarantee how often we fire at the different temperatures.
