At Potters Thumb we provide you with monthly memberships starting from €140. A monthly membership will give you access to the studio for up to 15 hours studio time a week as well as bisque and glaze firings. Firings will be communal and will run usually once a week.


The studios will not be open until 15/01/24. When purchasing a Membership Plan please set this as the starting date to avoid overpayment. 

The cost of our memberships begins at €140 for individuals who prefer hand building techniques, and €175 for individuals who prefer wheel throwing techniques. The monthly subscription includes a total of 15 hours of studio time per week. Clay can be purchased in 12.5kg bags at a discounted bulk pricing. Supplementary materials, extra storage capacity, and additional studio hours can be obtained as optional monthly add-ons. If you desire to acquire more materials or studio time, kindly reach out to us or directly approach the in-house studio manager.

As part of your membership, you will have the benefit of utilising a dedicated area for sculpting or a pottery wheel, depending on the type of membership you select. Additionally, you will have access to an assortment of studio tools and a designated shelf space to securely keep your artistic creations. You will have access to a selection of glazes that you can use freely, with a limit of up to 30 litres every month. It is highly recommended that you bring your own personal tools and aprons for your own advantage. Communal regular firings of your creations are scheduled on a weekly basis.

Currently, our studio exclusively offers high-fired Earthenware in the colour of chocolate black. The firing temperatures range from 800 to 900 degrees Celsius, with a maximum temperature of 1120 degrees Celsius.

Potters Thumb Malta is located at 6, Triq il-Kbira, Naxxar, NXR1800.
