Who doesn’t love a road trip?
Particularly one where you can take a look into an artists’ working studio. Under the brand-new banner Pottery Road, five local Tamborine Mountain and valley potters are joining forces to launch an open studio trail to coincide with the Australian Ceramics Open Studio event on Saturday & Sunday 12th & 13th of November 10am-4pm daily.
Nicci Parry-Jones PJ Pottery; Larissa Warren Ratbag Studios: Julia Bramich Julia Bramich Ceramics; Jo Mackenzie Jo Mackenzie Ceramics and Claudia De Salvo Claudia De Salvo Makes will be selling their ceramics and some will offer workshops from their studios over the weekend. Larissa, Jo and Nicci will be in Tamborine Mountain studios, Claudia in Guanaba and Julia in Wonglepong. You can also catch an amazing exhibition of new works by Julie Shepherd at Under The Greenwood Tree on the same weekend
These potters are passionate about their craft and would love to share some insights into how they create. Each has a unique style, utilising different techniques to produce their ceramics from delicate jewellery, one-of-a-kind porcelain pieces, quirky teapots and functional dinnerware and homeware.
Follow the Pottery Road Facebook page to find more, details of studio specials and demonstrations and workshops on offer. PJ Pottery will be offering a fun 1 hour workshop – Make Your Own Platter Set
Visitors to the studios will see where the magic happens! This is the perfect time to stock up on gorgeous handmade Christmas presents.

If you visit all five potters, you have five chances of winning!
