If you are looking four walls for inspiration or wanting to learn new skills to enhance your existing practice then the following two workshops may be just the creative tonic you need.

Culinary Clay: Food and Design at Gaya Ceramic and Design located in Ubud, Bali from 8 – 21 April 2012. Returning for it’s third incarnation, this is a remarkable workshop for any clay-lover with a specific interest in the intimate relationship between food and the vessel in which it is presented.  Formal design considerations of shape, texture, color and scale will be explored in direct relation to specific unusual gastronomic selections.  Participants will work closely with Hillary Kane, ceramic instructor and visiting culinary expert, Mary Jane Edleson, creating utilitarian pieces as well as sampling and preparing the exquisite recipes that will be served upon them.  The two-week workshop will culminate, appropriately, in a feast of the senses.

Vicki Grima was a participant in 2010 and is still raving about it. There are limited numbers left so hurry to book to reserve your place. For details of Gaya’s workshop program for 2012 go to

In 1956, The Potters Society of Australia was formed to encourage and foster the development, appreciation and recognition of potters and pottery. It was the first ceramics organisation in Australia. In 2006, our name was changed to The Australian Ceramics Association to more fully reflect the scope of practice of the members. We are a national, not-for-profit organisation representing the interests of practising potters and ceramicists, students of ceramics and all those interested in Australian ceramics. We actively support and promote quality, specialist ceramics education nationally. T: 1300 720 124
