Trudie Alfred (1922 – 2010) was a well-known Sydney potter and teacher with a great passion for ceramics. She struggled financially to sustain a ceramic practice in her early years as a potter and so, to assist others in a similar position, left a generous bequest to The Australian Ceramics Association (TACA).

TACA will award up to 5 scholarships per year (2012-2016), each valued at $4000 (ie. total $20,000 per year for 5 years).

Thank you to Judges of the 2nd round (2012/2013): Stephen Benwell (VIC), Ben Richardson (TAS), Patsy Hely (ACT) and Vicki Grima (NSW) for their deliberations and to all 34 applicants who made the judges’ job a hard one.

Applications for 2013/2014 will be announced in The Journal of Australian Ceramics, issue 52/1.
Deadline: mid September 2013.

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
