Like to open your studio as part of our national event?


Before we are overrun with spring fairs, we will warm our studios (for those down south), open the doors and welcome the locals in to see what we make. Whether you have a newly established or well-known studio, if you are an inner city group, a regional potter or in the suburbs, everyone is welcome to apply.

This will be TACA’s 5th national open studio event. In 2016, 145 studios opened their doors around the country – mostly individual potters in their studios, but also lots of groups and potters sharing studios with other potters. Gather together some local potters and share a space, or set up a local trail in your area. We will guide you by showing how others have done this in past years.

TACA has created a logo (see post header) which will be available for registered participants to use for publicity. TACA will organise national and state promotion of the event, and send you lots of great advice for local promotion and studio preparation as the event draws closer. We will be posting each participant some printed ACOS fliers (with the logo and a space for your details) and TACA postcards. State maps will be available online.
Every participating artist or group will be listed on a specially designed website, www.australianceramicscommunity.com.

Thank you to Mark Rose and Maya Santosa @magnolia.mountain for allowing TACA to use an image of their work for the ACOS logo.
Thanks also to Anna-Marie Wallace, from Made OF Australia, who is featured in the image above. She opened her northern NSW studio in 2016.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
