We would like to take the opportunity to thank our friends, students, interns, guest artists and supporters for a wonderful 2017. It's been a great year for our little centre and we appreciate every person who joins us.

COLLECTIVE x SLOW CLAY

Annual Christmas show

We invite you to come along to our fifth annual Collective X Slow Clay Christmas show. Our hardworking studio is being transformed as we write this into a shopping event showcasing over 30 experienced ceramic artists and unveiling some new surprises too! This annual event not only suits the Christmas shopper but is a great way to start, or add to, a ceramics collection. With a glass of Mount Prior Vineyard bubbles in hand you can peruse the objects from abstract sculptures to functional dinner wares with some associated synergistic objects such as jewellery, textiles, cards and prints. Gift wrapping is included. Avoid the big impersonal crowds and come for some peaceful, friendly shopping. Slow Clay's annual COLLECTIVE event is firmly on the map for collectors and Christmas gifts and we look forward to welcoming you.

And.....don't miss our associated free workshops each day - our gift to you! (See below)

Wednesday 13 - Sunday 17 December 2017
11am - 6pm
13 Keele St, Collingwood

Every $100 spent at Collective will go in the draw to win a $500 voucher for a free course at Slow Clay in 2018!

new dates for TASTE The CLAY 

Single session introductory classes 
Taste The Clay (no, not literally!) classes are a great way to see if you like the feel of spinning clay under your hands. It's two hours of muddy fun and you get to collect your glazed pieces a few weeks later. We repeat these taster sessions regularly and you can book a few friends in too if you wish to make it social! You could even combine it with a visit to one of our fantastic local bars or restaurants afterwards!  

Fridays 5th,12th & 19th January
5.30-7.30pm
$75
