OPEN TUE - SAT 10AM - 3PM

This incredible exhibition showcases our creative ceramic community with featured works by some of our most respected and celebrated artists and emerging potters too.

WORKSHOPS

As part of the pop up exhibition take part in one of the exciting social workshops. The workshops are perfect for a beginner, someone returning to clay or people looking for a fun night out with a difference!

During the 2 hour sessions you can expect to make something and underglaze it so that the finished item will be colourful. Items are then glaze fired using a clear glaze which highlights the underglaze colours applied. Stonewear clay and foodsafe glazes are used so that your item can be used to drink/eat from. Most nights will have a theme but you are not required to make the theme item – creativity is encouraged!

PRICING: Adults $30 per person. Children (ages 8 – 14 years) $25 per child
