Ceramics Studios open – 17-18 August, 10am-4pm

Next weekend – 17-18 August – many ceramics studios across Australia will be open for you to visit. In Central Victoria nine potters have created a wonderful clay trail linking Newstead, Maldon, Talbot, Creswick, Musk Vale and Porcupine Ridge. As well as seeing some beautiful ceramics, if you follow the trail an amazing landscape will open up before you. And of course, there are coffee shops, wineries and other interesting places to visit along the way.

Download our brochure here. It includes a map and details of each studio.

Visiting a maker’s studio is a wonderful opportunity to see firsthand the environment in which they work and gain an insight into what they create. The range of styles, techniques and materials used by the nine potters will intrigue you: on the trail you’ll find potters who make functional pieces, sculptures, and mosaics. Two of our regular Newstead Open Studio potters will be open – Sarah Koschak (Newstead) and Chris Johnston (Place Matters Studio, Green Gully).

Part of The Australian Ceramics Association’s annual nation-wide open studio program.
