The Pottery Expo at Warrandyte encourages studio potters from around Australia and overseas are to apply to exhibit. We welcome new potters and our long-term exhibitors.

In 2019 our guest artists will be from the United Kingdom.

The Pottery Expo at Warrandyte is an outdoor event on the banks of the Yarra River in Warrandyte, 25 kms north-east of Melbourne.

 

Studio potters need to apply online, noting the dates and deadlines given in “Application Information for Exhibitors”.

We require 4 high quality images of work intended for exhibition at the Expo. A selection panel of professional ceramic artists with the organizer will select the exhibitors.

As we have more potters than places, unfortunately not everyone can participate each year, but we will consider each potter’s application for the quality, innovation and skill of his or her work. Tip: send good photos!
