The group formed in 1978 by Margaret Holloway as the Dandenong Ceramic Group. The name was changed in 1985 as new members were being attracted from a much wider area.
We aim to hold two exhibitions per year which all members are welcome to participate in, as well as workshops and social events. Members also receive a bi-monthly newsletter. The Acquisition collection of works is on display at Clayworks in Dandenong and is added to each year with a work selected by an independant judge from the group's annual exhibition.
We are a non-profit organization of approximately 50 members, situated in the eastern/south eastern suburbs of Melbourne , membership is drawn from the wider Victorian community.
