7 Spot Pottery is a 360sq.ft ceramic studio located in Islington Mill, Salford.
We run handbuilding and throwing courses, and offer studio memberships.
We currently have 10 members from all walks of life who either work as artists or enjoy ceramics as a hobby. Membership includes storage space, 40l firings included, and 24hr key holder access. *Memberships are currently FULL!*
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive environment for people of all ability levels and experience, and welcome people who have no experience of working with clay at all, to those who have completed higher education in ceramics.
We believe in the benefits of clay as a therapeutic tool for everyone, whether as a personal practice or professional endeavour.
Our studio equipment includes 2 toploading kilns, an extruder, a slab roller and 4 pottery wheels. Access to basic stoneware glazes & stoneware clay is also available.

Parking & access:
Our site does not have private parking facilities, however there is plenty of roadside parking available close by on James Street or around the Chapel Street area. The studio is a 10 minute walk from Salford Central train station, or 15 minutes walk from Albert Square.
The studio is located on the first floor of a renovated Victorian mill, so unfortunately we do not currently have lift access. We do hope to get this in the future so that our space can be fully inclusive of people with mobility issues. We apologise for the inconvenience.
