Trylla ceramics studio opens its doors to all budding potters. Whether you are an experienced potter or a beginner who wants to experiment with clay, all are welcome.
Clay Club acts as an open access to the studio and so this is not a taught lesson - however you have access to one of our technicians, who will be on hand to answer questions, should you need it.
The studio benefits from all the tools and equipment you will need to make great pots as well as all of the glaze colours you can imagine. You will also have the option of signing up for a go on our pottery wheel - these slots last 15 minutes. Will use our kiln to fire your work for you in between sessions.
You will choose to do either 'clay work' or 'colour work' for your whole session:
If you opt for clay work you can use as much ice white, gritty peach or terracotta Earthenware Clay as you like - it’s your choice. You will then spend the session making whatever you like, focusing on the form of your project.
In the following session you attend you might opt for colour work, to decorate your projects. You will have access to a HUGE selection of underglaze paints, jazzy speciality glazes and transparent topcoat to do this.
In this experience you will:
Whatever you create during your experience will be fired by us and ready to pick up 2 weeks later. For large items we may ask for an additional donation of a few pounds to go towards firing costs.
More info on how it all works on our website here : https://tryllashop.co.uk/pages/clay-club
You can also opt to do both glazing and making from raw clay for an extra cost of £5 per person - payable when you arrive
Age restrictions: 16+

I'm a regular at Trylla as really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and chance to make what I want. I'm back again next week! 😁
I've been coming to clay club every couple months for a year now, and it's one of the best studio spaces I've ever worked in. The atmosphere is warm colorful and creative, the music is always boppin, and everyone running the session is always incredibly helpful.
It's good for both people who want to squash clay around like it's play-doh, and for people wanting to come and throw a full dinner set.
Lots of materials and tools and advice from the friendly host on a bog range of techniques for building with clay,
Another great session - thank you! 😊
We will come back for sure!!
I really bloomin love Clay Club! It’s the first time I’ve been since the PD ruin our fun and both myself and my friend had a bloody great time! Thanks Trylla!
Another great experience at Trylla! Thank you! 😁
Love love love!
It was really fun. I went with a friend and we had a great time and all the other people there were also incredibly friendly and sweet. Can’t wait to go again and glaze my pottery.
I really enjoy my clay sessions at Trylla due to the relaxed atmosphere and large variety of equipment available. I will be back!
I have been attending clay club for 6 months and really enjoy it. You can use unlimited clay and have a good amount of time (up to 2.5 hrs) and there is also useful guidance in the booklet provided or you can ask questions if you need help. It is a great chance to relax and get lost in either making something or glazing your items. I live quite a way south of Bristol but am very happy I found Trylla clay club and would recommend it to beginners or experienced clay artists!
Such a lovely way to spend an evening, we will be back!
As always clay club was the best!
Everything was spot on, great host, nice environment, self directed but help when you needed it, everything you could need provided!
Great value and really friendly atmosphere.
My daughter enjoyed her session as a birthday treat. Help was available as needed too.
It was a very relaxed vibe and you're free to get creative and do whatever you want. My only suggestion would be to offer a little more guidance to first time potters. Honestly loved it. Thank you so much.
Lovely experience, went there on a bank holiday with not so many people attending, it was really calming and relaxing! Can't wait to go again
Absolutely brilliant - looking forward to coming back soon!
Another enjoyable session at Trylla, which I love for the chilled atmosphere and great facilities. Rebecca is a fantastic host. I will be back soon. 😊
Always amazing, such lovely people!
Amazing workshop - great facilities, lovely people. I’ll definitely be booking in weekly 🌸
We all really enjoyed the experience
Really enjoyed this! Very relaxing and enjoyable.
I really enjoyed Clay Club! The Trylla team were really welcoming, the facilities and resources were excellent, and I had a really fun evening. I'm looking forward to coming back soon!
A pleasant and relaxed class with help if needed.
I am a regular at Trylla and always enjoy my sessions. Highly recommended. 😊
I love the opportunity to be creative and do pottery. Very nice price and lovely people!
Nice and relaxed club. Well run by Rebecca.
Another lovely, relaxing and enjoyable session at Trylla with other friendly, like-minded people!
It's really good fun!
Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and the creative freedom is so lovely.
Booking to go again!
I regularly attend the pottery sessions at Trylla as I think they're excellent value for money and I like the fact I have the freedom to make whatever I choose. They is a wide range of different tools and glazes to experiment with, and help if you need it. Highly recommended experience.
Loved it! Second time and will be back again.
I had so much fun! It was my first time trying pottery and I would definitely recommend it :) I look forward to joining your workshop again. I would love to paint the vase I created but I did not find an available class until the 22nd of June :(
Really nice experience
Great evening. Would be good as a first timer if tools, slip locations were labelled.
Really friendly space to have a creative evening.
Really great session as per, lovely and relaxed
Very nice, I enjoyed doing my pottery pieces.
clay club is amazing! I've been going for months now, and I feel so free and full of ideas. I love the fact that you just go and do your thing, Rebecca is always there you assist you, there are always enough materials and somehow she remembers the things I did last the previous class! 10/10 would recommend, specially to newbies like me!!
Lovely, relaxing and fun evening at Trylla again. Highly recommended. 😊
Lovely relaxed atmosphere to be creative in!
Can not wait to paint my clays and so it again
Also will bring a friend along next time
Spaces are filling up so fast :(
Fun open studio type experience. Let your creative juices flow
It was so great! My boyfriend and I loved it- it was really lovely to be able to make whatever we wanted, and 1kg of clay is more than enough to last you 2.5 hours. Amazing!
Super fun and relaxed, really enjoyed the session and will deffo be back
I like that it was informal and I was able to take it at my own pace. There was good music playing quietly and an abundance of materials to explore. And I even got to keep my unused clay to practice at home.
Enjoyed coming back to glaze our creations 😊
We had a great evening at Trylla- would highly recommend
Loved the session and the company and music was on point! I'll be back x
love the vibes
Had another excellent evening at clay club
Amazing 👏 loved everything ❤ The creative Space, the assortment of clay, glazes and the freedom
Nice set-up, looking forward to another session!
Had a really lovely chill time and got to try out the pottery wheel (unguided) which was great fun even though I wasn't good at it. Will definitely have to book in again and have a go at the wheel!
Really nice atmosphere at Trylla to get into some pottery. Helpful host and well priced :)
Lovely space and relaxed atmosphere. Host was very helpful and lovely - I will be back!
I've been coming to Clay Club for a few months, and I love it. So friendly, easy-going and fun... a little oasis of calm and creativity in my week :)
Really nice and friendly environment
Very welcoming and accommodating with lots of tips and helpful feedback. Would definitely book again!
Went with my sister and had a lot of fun! You get to choose the type of clay to work with and have space to make whatever you want! There were couples, groups of friends, and people on their own attending; most people/groups are welcome!
We've booked in for our next session where we'll be painting and glazing our creations - very excited!
So much fun! Just what I needed after a stressful week - clear instruction provided and support is on hand of you need it but otherwise you’re left to just play with the clay and make want you want . Excited to go back and paint my creations ! Thanks!
6 of us went and had great time clay modelling. can't wait fro the glazing next!
Great selection of clay and tools, and Alice and the other staff member were very helpful and lovely to chat to. We are excited to go back to glaze our creations, fingers crossed they survive the kiln!
Went in for a second session to paint the clay from 2 weeks ago. So many different coloured glazes to choose from, and Alice is always super helpful whenever you have a question. Would definitely recommend for a nice relaxed creative afternoon!
I had so much fun! Will definitely go back.
Always have the best time at Clay club, just wish I could spend a whole day there making things. Would recommend to anyone , the environment is always great and Alice is the best teacher 😎
Lovely and welcoming host. A great way to spend the evening. We had a great time thanks so much!
Loved attending the clay club! Very much looking forward to coming back.
Love it, and you! Thank you so much Alice x
It was lovely to be back at Clay club - returning to the relaxed and enjoyable sessions that Alice hosts. Nice to be back doing something playful and creative.
We loved our time at Trylla! Booked a clay club session with friends to dust away the lockdown cobwebs, and do something a little creative. As a group of novices, Alice was incredibly helpful at pointing us in the right direction to get things started, and learn our way around the workshop. A lighthearted, entertaining evening, although we were totally absorbed for the whole 2.5 hours. Cant’ wait to glaze
Each 6ft long table will have space for 2 people, with the exception of any pal you may have come along with who is a part of your ‘bubble’. Aprons will not be available, so please bring along your own if you would like! Please do not attend Clay Club if you have been in contact with anyone who may have Covid.
It is advisable to wear clothes you don't mind getting a bit messy. Some of the clays can stain white clothing so avoid wearing white.
The shop is right near Bedminster Parade so it is easily accessible from the centre of Bristol on the bus via the M1/ 24 / 75 / 76 busses. There is also Bedminster train station just a 15 minute walk away.
After being an apprentice at two other pottery studios in Bristol previously Trylla managed to get Rebecca to come work for us here at Trylla. She's an all round creative withe a special place in her heart for pottery. She acts as our studio hand helping us with the day to day of clay work.
