Nelson Clay Week

Saturday 1st-Sunday 9th October 2022

Nelson Clay Week is a biannual festival celebrating contemporary ceramic art and showcasing the ever-growing talent of Aotearoa’s pottery community.

Bringing together established and emerging potters, Nelson Clay Week aims to foster connection, promote skills sharing and encourage discussion about the past, present and future of this multi-faceted medium.

This year’s inaugural event will offer a varied programme of workshops and masterclasses carefully curated to inspire practitioners and expand practices. Pottery lovers and the wider community are invited to join in the celebration through a number of public activities and exhibitions across Nelson’s CBD and the Nelson Tasman region.

Nelson Clay Week is brought to you by Arts Council Nelson in association with Kiln Studio and with support from Creative New Zealand, Nelson Regional Development Agency and Nelson City Council.
