Dear Members and Friends

Canberra Potters Closure due to COVID-19

The Board of Directors of the Canberra Potters’ Society (CPS) wishes to advise you of the suspension of all activities at CPS and the Watson Arts Centre until further notice.  As I am sure, you will understand that the suspension of activities is in response to the rapidly escalating affects of the COVID-19 pandemic.  The decision to cease activities is our contribution to protecting the health and wellbeing of all CPS members, class participants, facility users, gallery visitors and staff.

Priorities of the Board at this time are to enable the management team to be ready to deliver activities and services to the ceramics community as soon as this health emergency is over.

Suspension of all activities includes:

  • Classes; 
  • Workshops;
  • Drop-in sessions; 
  • Members’ workshop access; 
  • Kiln and glaze room; and
  • Library.

Also, access to CPS and WAC is not permitted without prior arrangement.

Permanent staff members continue to work at this time, and are available via email.  Please keep visiting our website and see us on Instagram, and Facebook for updates.

Kindest regards and best wishes to all

Velda Hunter
