About the Market

Join Canberra Potters for a market like no other! 

The Canberra Potters Market has been created to connect our fantastic community of makers directly with the public. With over a thousand visitors to our 2020 Christmas Fair and over 800 to our 2019 Emerging Makers Market, this market is promising to be one of our best yet!

The details:

The market is a pottery/ceramics focused market, so the majority of products for sale must be made out of clay, by the stallholder/business. We invite applications from emerging to established makers, although recommend you’ve held a stall at least one market before.  Interstate stallholders are also welcome to apply (but must comply with relevant Covic-19 restrictions).

Stallholders are required to provide their own stall set up within a space of up to 2m wide by 1.5m deep and provide staffing for their stall for the duration of the event. Stallholders are also required to complete all sales handling (unlike, for example, in our Christmas Fairs).

Pricing: 

CPS Member: $225.00

General Stallholder: $275.00

No additional commission is taken by Canberra Potters.

Once your application has been accepted, you will be invoiced the stallholder fee which is payable within 14 days.

Please read the Terms and Conditions for further details.

About:

Canberra Potters is proud to present its annual Members’ Exhibition featuring some of the best work created by its members during the last twelve months.

The exhibition presents the inexhaustible breadth of ceramic arts through works using combinations of different clays, making, decorating and firing techniques to create works that are unique in form, texture and colour. Demonstrating the trends in contemporary ceramics practice, this is Canberra’s major ceramic show of the year.

An award pool of over $2000 is donated by our generous sponsors, with the premier award of the exhibition being the $1000 Doug Alexander Memorial Award.

The Doug Alexander Memorial Award:

Each year since 1990, Canberra Potters have given the Doug Alexander Award to an exceptional potter in our annual Members’ Exhibition. It is presented in celebration and honour of Doug Alexander who was the resident potter at Cuppacumbalong Arts and Craft Centre at Tharwa, from 1976 to 1981 – brought short by his untimely death.

Doug Alexander made a huge contribution to the development of functional ceramics in Australia and, when he moved to Canberra, Doug Alexander’s experience and knowledge gave a fillip to pottery in Canberra. This $1000 cash prize is proudly sponsored by Canberra Potters.
