The BCB Studio is a space to work with clay, based in the heart of Stoke on Trent at Spode Works. Here you can access making opportunities, whether you’re an experienced maker or just beginning.
We host adult learning courses and family ‘Clay Together’ sessions for beginners. For more confident makers, we provide a membership with access to the studio and its facilities on Mondays and Thursdays each week. We regularly host residencies for both UK-based and international artists. There are also regular opportunities to join in on collaborative projects and commissions alongside professional artists.
The BCB Studio is a place to meet others, learn and share skills, develop your creativity, and nurture your wellbeing, whilst being part of a clay community in the heart of the ceramic city.
