Through our residency program we aim to enrich the professional experience for both visiting artists and our community.

We offer studio space, equipment, materials and an active ceramics community for sharing and support.

Our international programs run for a period of between 2 and 4 weeks during the summer months preferably August – October but dates are open for discussion depending on the nature of the project suggested.
