Are you a potter?
If you would like to be part of our cooperative please contact us.
We are always looking for fresh work to enhance the range we provide so if you feel your work would add to our cooperative please contact us.
You will need to submit a minimum of five pieces of work with your CV, Artist Statement and Retail Price-list for selection by the existing members. Once selected you will be invited to become a provisional member for a 6 months, after which we/you will decide to continue your membership and be accepted as a full member.
Members are selected on the basis of a high-standard of craftsmanship, and adding to the vibrant range of work available in the shop. All work in the shop must be designed and made by individual makers or partnerships, and have a commercial potential.
Members will have to demonstrate that they can provide sufficient stock on a regular basis and be enthusiastic and prepared to work in the shop for their 8 shifts over the course of each year. The shop is open Monday – Saturday 10.15am – 5.30pm. (Sunday's in December)
At the annual AGM members will have an opportunity to meet all the other potters/ members and share in a sociable home made lunch as well as establishing the business for the year. Any full member is eligible to be on the governing body who meet three of four times a year to manage and direct the business and promotion.
Being a cooperative, your enthusiasm to see the community of POTTERS grow is highly welcome and encouraged. This is more than a stockist opportunity - it's a creative network with the shared love of CLAY!
