Like hot desking... but for pottery! Trylla brings you a brand new way of working on your projects at our daytime co-working space.

Bag a two-hour session to create whatever you like using our materials, tools, equipment and desk space.

Grab a space and make use of our wide range of supplies. We have everything you need to make the ceramics of your dreams a reality!

  • The perfect set up

  • everything you need

How does it work?

Mud Club is not a taught lesson, so you will need to have prior experience of working with clay. However, there will be a resident potter available during your session should you have any burning questions.

The ceramics studio is on the ground floor of Trylla, on North Street. It has desk space and all the tools and equipment you will need to make great pots, as well as a vast array of glaze colours. You will also have access to our pottery wheels to get throwing. Use as much or as little of the materials as you like during the session.

You can pick from a selection of ice white, terracotta or peach grog clay to make your work. When you are ready to decorate, you will have access to a huge selection of underglaze paints, jazzy speciality glazes, coloured slips and transparent topcoats to decorate your work. Fancy!

Anything you create can be left with your host at the studio to be fired once it has completely dried out. Happy potting!

Mud Club FAQs

Hot-desking involves a number of different people sharing the same workspace on a rotational basis. This often means a desk in an office - but here at Trylla, we decided to offer hot-desking for potters instead!

Our Mud Club is designed to give you open access to our tools, equipotment and and space. So that you can work on your projects and ideas at your own pace.

You might even meet some other potters while you are there who you can bounce ideas around with.

You will have two hours to hand build whatever you like using our materials, tools and desk space.

Maybe you might work on a few different projects over a couple of sessions, or perhaps you just have one project in mind that you want to make. Whatever you create during your session can be left with us at the studio to be fired once it has completely dried out.

Please don't forget to name your work so you can find it again once it has been fired.

Mud Club is not a taught lesson - you will need to have prior experience of working with clay, as you will be left to your own devices.

You will have access to a resident potter during your session who will be using the space to work on their own projects and complete small bits of studio matinence. Should you have any burning questions you can ask them. However please bear in mind they may not know the answer. Each of our potters will have a very personal and specific way of working - just like any artist - so they may not have the exact knowlege base you need.

As always you are welcome to come in to the studio on a Tuesday daytime to chat to our head technichian Alice. She has the most experienec in our team and a fairly expansive knowledge base on the world of ceramics if you need answers!

You can pick from a selection of: ice white, terracotta or peach grog clay to use to make your work. Or do feel free to buy different types of clay from our shop or bring your own clay along with you.

When you are ready to decorate, you will have access to a huge selection of coloured slips, oxides, underglaze paints, jazzy speciality glazes and transparent topcoat to decorate your work.

The studio uses predominantely Earthenware clays and so our underglazes and jazzy speciality glazes are designed to be used at that temperature. Our slips, and oxides will go to stoneware temoeratures, and we can also provide you with a stoneware transparent topcoat too.

Feel free to bring in your own glazes and clays to the studio but please make sure you can give us a firing range for whatever materials you bring.

Yeah baby! you will be restricted to using the wheel for 1 hour maximum of the time you have avaliable but that is plenty to make multiple items.
