bethlehem pottery club membership

If you’re new to clay, we ask you to gain some basic pottery skills by attending a beginner’s class prior to becoming a member, although you can still do a class without becoming a member of the club.

If you’ve worked with clay before and have basic pottery skills, call into the club and complete an

application form on a Tuesday or Thursday club day. If you’re unable to come in on a club day, fill in

the enquiry form below and we’ll contact you to make a time to meet at the club.


Once you’re a member we’ll make a time to meet to show you around the clubrooms and explain how our systems work, for example, clay purchasing, firing, glazing etc
