Why join Hive?

Hive is a registered charity, and joining us helps us to achieve our charitable objectives. Our members help inform what we do and guide our activities – joining lets you have your say and vote at our AGM.

However, there’s much more to membership:

  • Members-only prices for all of our courses (around 15% off).
  • Use of our pottery, woodwork and art studios whenever they’re not in use for courses. (Please note we are in temporary accommodation until summer 2024, which will affect availability of pottery and woodwork drop-ins. Please see our refurbishment page for details.)
  • Access to our Saturday Club (£1 per hour to cover opening costs).

To access discounted prices for courses, you must log in to the site using the same details you became a member with.

Membership is open to everybody over 16 years old. Membership also entitles an adult to bring up to two children under 18 to drop-in sessions (excluding woodwork), provided they are supervised at all times.
