MORE ABOUT VALLEY POTTERS INC.
Valley Potters are a non-profit organisation that has been running for more than 40 years. We have members from all over Victoria.
At Valley Potters our aim is to encourage and stimulate members to a higher standard of craftsmanship. To disseminate theoretical, practical and historical knowledge of potters and their endeavours.
We want to provide a point of contact and connection with fellow Victorian potters.
We aim to hold two exhibitions per year, open to all members. Our annual exhibition includes an acquisition prize which is independently judged.
The Acquisition Collection is on display at Clayworks- Now Northcote Pottery in Dandenong. We encourage members to participate.
We also hold workshops and social events, and members receive a bimonthly newsletter.
We offer a range of workshops to support both members and nonmembers. Workshops are hands-on. Participants will have lots of fun connecting with other potters, learning and interacting with them.
In 1978 the Dandenong Ceramic Group was formed by a group of Potters guided by Margaret Holloway. This came about because the Dandenong Council, in conjunction with Arts/Craft Victoria, invited local groups to join together to hold a festival. Margaret was asked to organise a working display of local potters, hence the group was born. The Dandenong Ceramic group was open to anyone interested in the study of Ceramics.
In 1985 the name changed to Valley Potters and was Incorporated in 1987, as the group attracted members from a wider area.
