A professional ceramics studio in the heart of Eastbourne with fantastic equipment and expert technical support. We offer classes for all abilities and ages led by our team of dedicated artist-teachers plus a range of taster sessions, talks and specialist workshops. For more experienced makers we offer open access studio membership, project development and a standalone firing service.
The studio takes part in several widely advertised arts events throughout the year, including the Charleston Designer Maker Fair, where students and members have the opportunity to exhibit and sell their work. We welcome applications from artists and designers for our residency programme where we offer studio space and technical support to develop new projects.
We love going out on the road with the studio and meeting new audiences. We set up the pottery at festivals including the lovely Elderflower Fields and Into the Trees organised by So Sussex and the Living History events at Michelham Priory for Sussex Past. We run workshops for local schools, galleries and museums including Towner Eastbourne and Volt Gallery & Project Space.
As a Community Interest Company, we are dedicated to providing opportunities for all members of the community to explore their creativity, share our facilities and experiment with clay. We work with community groups to offer bespoke workshops and support well-being through the practice of craft.
Eastbourne Studio Pottery is committed to inclusion, diversity and equality in all our activities, recognising that diversity fuels creativity and innovation. We are dedicated to learning and continually evolving our understanding and work on inclusion.
