TENT TALKS @The Pottery Expo

The 2021 Tent Talks are over but you can watch them via the video links below. 

We are planning the 2022 Tent Talks now. Please get in touch with us if you are exhibiting at The Pottery Expo in 2022 and would like to give a talk about your work or an aspect of interest:  info@slowclay.com

The annual Tent Talks at The Pottery Expoare held each February beside the beautiful Yarra River (The Birrarung) at Warrandyte. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we hold these talks, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation and pay our respects to the elders past, present and emerging and note the this land has not been ceded.

The Pottery Expo is an outdoor ceramics market that features over 60 stalls showing studio ceramics from emerging to established practitioners. It is a much-loved annual festival with music, food, wine and…..ta da….our Slow Clay Centre TENT TALKS  where we invite panels of makers to speak on topics of interest. The idea is to connect the public to the makers’ ideas, materials and processes and to show some of the work that goes on behind the scenes!

TENT TALKS: are located near the main entrance under the large tent behind the Slow Clay Centre stall. Entry is FREE and no bookings are required. We encourage you to stay around afterwards for a Q&A session with the artists. Topics are designed to open your minds to ceramics and present some of the artists’ ideas! We welcome suggestions for educational and fun topics.

You can visit The Pottery Expo website to read more and we look forward to seeing you in 2022!
