CLAY MATTERS 1, our 2022 annual Collective x Slow Clay is over. If you would like to find out more about the Clay Matters environmental research group please head to their FB page and join the group! Please return to this page later in 2023 to find out more about our next Collective x Slow Clay exhibition.



Collective x Slow Clay is our annual end of year exhibition designed to celebrate and encourage the serious collection of ceramics. It’s all about supporting artists and collectors and inspiring our students in the process! It’s serious win-win!

This year, 2022, our end of year Collective exhibition will be hosted by Clay Matters, an environmental action group established to encourage clay workers to lead and inspire climate action, embed environmentally friendly and sustainable practices in the studio, and strengthen individual and social commitments to carbon reduction.

We are very excited to present “Clay Matters 1” the first exhibition by members of the group, at Slow Clay Centre from 16 – 24 December, 11am-5pm daily.

We are equally excited to have the Victorian Green’s member elect for Richmond, Gabrielle DeVietri, as our opening speaker 6pm Friday 16 December and invite you to come along, learn about ceramics and sustainable practices and to collect hand-made! Your support means so much.
