Opened at Watson Arts Centre in October 2001, potters place is an initiative of Canberra Potters’ Society. It provides a permanent retail outlet for the work of some of the Society's professional and semi-professional members. A number of talented people currently supply and staff Potters Place so whenever you visit us you’ll find people who can talk to you about the works on display. You may even be lucky enough to meet the maker of your purchases. They work with a variety of clays: earthenware, stoneware and porcelain, using their skills and creativity to produce objects you’ll love to own or give as gifts.

Make time to pay us a visit in Watson – you’ll find plenty of beautiful things to browse through. And if you’re looking for a gift but can’t decide what to buy, a potters place gift voucher could make the ideal present.

 

 

potters place also stocks clay and a limited range of pottery tools and underglazes.

Find us at Watson Arts Centre, Aspinall Street, Watson, ACT 2602

Eftpos facilities available

 

 


potters place welcomes applications so if you’re a potter looking for a new outlet to sell your pottery then why not consider the Society’s shop. It’s run on co-operative lines so all members take their turn rostered on duty – as normal opening days are Thursday to Sunday, when we have twenty shop members that means just one day every five weeks. And the benefit of staffing the shop is lower sales commission than you’ll find in other retail outlets.

potters place and its members are very important to the Society – the shop is often the first point of contact for potential students and new members, and without shop members to mind exhibitions and handle gallery sales, we couldn’t run the exhibition program.

You don’t have to be a long-term potter to apply to join the shop. Shop members are a friendly bunch and keen to mentor newer potters.

If you’d like more information about shop membership contact the office (see below) for a handbook and application form. If you’d like to talk to current shop members about the shop and what it might mean for you then we can put you in touch with someone to chat to.

office: 6241 1670 or admin@canberrapotters.com.au

PLEASE NOTE: There are no current vacancies in the shop. We'll notify here as and when space becomes available.

Canberra Potters' Society is an agency for both Clayworks Australia Pty. Ltd. and  Walker Ceramics
