Who we are

South Wales Potters is one of the largest groups of professional and hobby potters and ceramicists in the UK.

We have more than 180 members, based in South, Mid and West Wales, over the water in the South West and the Heart of England and even some working abroad.

Members include full-time potters, sculptors and students as well as hobby potters.

We organise a full programme of events for members including demonstrations, 'skill-share' sessions and social events.

Members also receive the popular Shards newsletter four times a year.

We also have an exhibitions programme, giving members an opportunity to showcase and sell their work.

We welcome everyone interested in ceramics, whether you are a maker or not.


To join South Wales Potters, which costs less than £30 a year, please get in touch with our membership secretary.
