New Makers Ceramics Market

This August we’re introducing a New Makers Ceramics Market, held 10-4pm, 3-4 August 2019. Run in conjunction with a mentoring program, we aim to provide emerging ceramic artists a fun and supportive environment to sell their wares.

We define emerging artists as artists or makers who are at the beginning of their career with limited to no market experience. We will accept limited applications from more experienced makers.

A change from our previous Winter and Christmas Fairs, this market requires participants to attend to their stall for the duration of the market (10am-4pm). Participants are responsible for their own sales and providing the relevant cash/EFTPOS facilities (we recommend using Square). As such, we will not be taking a commission on any sold items, rather a one off participation fee.



Fair only: $70

Market + Mentoring: $170

Participants will be prioritised under the following criteria:

  • Applicants completing the mentoring program
  • Applicants with little marketing experience
  • Applicants not represented by Potters Place, the Canberra Potters’ Shop

Participants will also be selected according to the information provided in the application form below and the following selection criteria:

  • Quality of work
  • Ability to commit to both days of the market, including adequate stock levels

Applicants will be notified when the mentoring program is available to book into and when participation fees will be taken. All applicants will also be notified of the selection outcome.

Expressions of Interest close 5pm AEST 27 May 2019
