Keramiek Garage is a shared studio located in the heart of Rotterdam for anyone interested in working with ceramics.

As a member, you can rent a workspace by the half-day. During a 4-hour time slot, you will have access to a pottery wheel as well as all the facilities provided by Keramiek Garage.

We offer tools, a workbench, clay, glazes, and a professional kiln for firing your work. Additionally, members are provided with a shelf for their projects and a box for their own clay storage. You can purchase and book your time slots through our reservation system. Firing costs and clay are calculated separately.

A workshop assistant is always present, but please note that they are not instructors. The only requirement to use the shared studio is a basic knowledge of ceramics. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced artist, simply bring your apron and towel, and you're ready to create!
