There’s no better opportunity to come and explore the Watson Arts Centre and discover what Canberra Potters can do with clay. We are brimming with expert potters and ceramic artists who will provide you with a day of demonstrations, hands-on activities, exhibitions, shop sales, open studios, trade and information tables. As a ACT Key Arts Organisation and the only one dedicated to ceramics, we pride ourselves on our knowledge, skill and outstanding facility which provides an essential centre of activity to the region’s ceramic artists.
Have you ever wanted to try the potters wheel? Now’s your chance! Spend some time making clay creatures with the young and young at heart, and watch our talented demonstrators create new pieces right in front of you. Our ever popular Raku firing will be operating throughout the day too, where under our guidance, you can buy a pot and glaze it and behold the alchemy of the Raku kiln!
Visit our artist studios, enjoy the annual Members’ Exhibition, and stoke your passion for clay. Woodfired pizza, coffee and refreshments available on the day.
