About the teacher

Tony graduated from the Australian National University with a Bachelor of Arts (Sculpture), Canberra School of Arts in 1995. Since that time Tony has had numerous exhibitions and commissions many in the realm of public and community art. His involvement with the Canberra Potters dates back to 2014 when he taught a special needs group of students from Belconnen Community Services. During these classes he championed the positive effect working with clay can have on those with disabilities. Tony has since been regularly engaged to teach during our popular school holiday program.
