Are you hooked on ceramics but lack the space for a home studio?

The Winterwares Membership is your creative haven where you can nurture your pottery practice. Enjoy using our studio space to begin or continue your pottery journey. Unleash your creativity, crafting your own hand-built ceramics.

Given the duration required for pottery to undergo the firing process, we recommend initially signing up for a two-month period. This allows you to experience the entire process from start to finish.

Please note: Winterwares specialises in hand-building pottery; we don’t have pottery wheels.

  • One month of access to the Winterwares studio.
  • 10kg of clay.
  • Free Wi-Fi.
  • Use of our air-conditioned creative space in our stunning Heritage Listed building in the West End of Fremantle.
  • Access to kitchen & bathroom facilities.
  • Firing service (exclusively available for members, we don’t offer a public firing service) the firing service is an additional charge based on the size of your pieces.
  • Access to all the hand-building tools we use at Winterwares including an extruder and a slab roller.
  • Access to Winterwares library – a collection of books curated by Simone.

Membership includes 2 x 3 hours sessions per week (a total of 24 hours a month!) which you can book online.

Glazing sessions are held once per month at our production studio in O’Connor, on the last Saturday of the month.

You can use one of your sessions to glaze your pieces.

We have a selection of glazes to choose from. A Winterwares staff member will guide you to glaze your pieces.

If you can't make the glazing session or would rather one of our experts do the glazing for you we can give you a price for the service.

Firing is charged per piece, depending on the size. Every piece needs to be fired twice to be functional.

As an example, a coffee mug would be around $4 for bisque & glaze firing and a salad bowl would be around $12.

We have a size chart you can use to see the cost.
