VALLEY POTTERS INC
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.
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 are a non-profit organization of approximately 50+ members, situated in the eastern/south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and membership is drawn from the wider Victorian community.
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 independent judge from the group's annual exhibition.
"Wow thank you, and thanks to the Valley Potters for the opportunity to be a part of such a well organized event , congrats to all involved, organizers and fellow potters."
