Ceramics Classes for 2021/22: 

Our ceramics classes have been at the heart of TAW for many years and we appreciate everything all of our teachers have done for the society and the Trinity society. Unfortunately, ceramics classes are the most difficult to organise without access to the pottery studios (incl. the wheels) and they thrived because of the community of students returning regularly and the amount of classes that were offered.

We hope societies can return to indoor events soon, but until then ceramics classes will be very different to what you experienced previously and for anyone disappointed about that, we feel you. And we will try anything to offer fun workshops anyways until then. We will organise outdoor events, some using air-drying materials, but we’re open to any of your suggestions, too. For any previous student wanting to collect their work, please email us, we might be able to organise to retrieve some of these artworks even before the re-opening. You worked very hard for these and deserve to have them with you.

    Hi there –

    I wanted to inquire about Group classes. I would love to organize a session with some colleagues ideally on a Friday afternoon from 4.30 – 5.30 or thereabouts.

    Can you advise if this is something that you cater for and approximate costs for between 8-12 people?

      Hi, sorry it has taken so long for us to reply. You can drop into any of the classes whenever you want. Classes will not be on from around July until September.

      Hi, you’re more than welcome to join any of our classes. The term runs from September until around July, so come in any time between these months!

      Hello Clasica Chic. I am interested too and I would like to start asap, not waiting till September. Did you find something ? Maybe we could make a group and find a teacher willing to give us classes during the summer?

    • admintaw says:


      Our pottery classes run Monday-Satruday and will resume again after the summer break on Monday 21st September. Classes are drop-in so you can come along to any of the classes from this date onwards.

    HI, I am interested in taking pottery classes. Can I start in November? How does it work? Is it everyday or can I choose to go twice a week?

    • admintaw says:

      Hi Susie, there is no Saturday class at present. However we have classes running every evening Monday to Friday. You don’t need to bring anything with you. I hope you enjoy the class 🙂

    Hi there,
    How are you?
    I am a ceramist and I am looking for raw pottery to be glazed and decorated by myself, and then fired.
    Would it be possible to buy the material and pay for the firing at your shop?

    Thanks a lot!
    Best Regards,

      Hi Monica, I’m not sure if we can do that insurance-wise. Let me ask around and I’ll let you know. It would be very helpful if you could message the TAW Facebook page with this query as I’m not sure I can reply more than once to a question on this website and I do want to get back to you when I know more.

    Hi, I am interested in attending the Friday class. I went to the building last Friday but I could not find the exact entrance to the building/ art class! Could you give me some information on how I can actually access the building?

  6. Felipe Mejias says:

    Hi, just double checking that the classes are still on, are they still on for the month of may and june?

  7. Agnieszka Wiesyk says:

    Are the classes on now and during the Summer?
    Also, do you do gift vouchers for the class if I’d like to get it for my friend? How does it work if so.

    • admintaw says:

      Hi there! The classes have ended and there will not be any classes during the summer but they will resume in September! Unfortunately, as for now, no we don’t do gift vouchers.

  8. Linda Nguyen says:

    Hi, I am new to Dublin and I’m interested in taking pottery classes. Is the website class date current (classes restart Sept 5)? Is there a limit to how many classes you can take per week?
    Many thanks!

    • admintaw says:

      Hi Mairead, the classes for 18/19 are now up on our website. There is no minimum age requirement, however, we recommend that any people under the age of 16 are to be accompanied by a guardian.

  9. Kathy says:

    Hi there. I’m a complete beginner but would love to give it a go. Would this class be suitable for a complete beginner, and if not, could you recommend a more suitable one?
