Hosted by The Australian Ceramics Association, more than 100 ceramics studios – including many in and around Australia’s capital cities and regional centres – open their doors to offer insight, practical demonstrations and the chance to take home a handmade piece.
Australian Design Centre will host a pop-up studio on Saturday 17 August from 10am - 4pm as part of the Australian Ceramics Open Studios 2019.  We’re thrilled to have ceramicist Elisa Bartels in the gallery sharing her knowledge and discussing ceramic techniques.
