Our Studio is a shared co-working space available to Ceramicists who have some experience in working with clay.  To become a Studio Member, you must demonstrate some previous experience in ceramics, this can include community classes, formal TAFE and University qualifications as well as practical experience.  Members must also have a good knowledge of safe practices in ceramics and be willing to be self directed and be willing to follow the rules as set out the Studio Handbook.

Access to the Studio is between the hours of 9am to 5pm from Monday to Sunday, with the exception being when there is a Workshop booked to use the space.  There are small additional fees for daily use of the Studio and firing fees.  The Studio provides all the equipment necessary for a Ceramic practice however, members are required to provide there own personal tools and ceramic supplies, such as clay and glazes.

If you wish to view our facilities before joining up, please contact the Studio Manager on tcastudiomanager@gmail.com to arrange a tour.

Please Note that we do not provide a firing service for members who do not produce work at the Studio.  If you are looking to have work fired that you are producing in a home studio, you can contact Derwent Ceramic Supplies in Moonah, who provide a firing service on (03) 6278 3208.

Please note that our time in our current Studio location is coming to an end and we will be re-locating the Studio in 2019.  We anticipate that when a new location is secured there will be an interruption to use of the Studio.
