The Pottery Expo at Warrandyte has gathered a firm fan base since its inception in 2001. Instigated by Jane Annois, a local studio potter, it's based on the concept of the Marche de Potiers (Potters Markets) of France. Each year a panel selects and invites exhibitors from around Australia, and the result is a curated event of the best work from selected studio ceramic artists.

The event this year will be held on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 February 2019 from 10am to 5.30pm each day, on the riverbank, corner Yarra and Webb streets, Warrandyte. With POT LUCK as its theme, the French are coming for dinner and the focus is on tableware and setting the table.

Manningham City Council and the Warrandyte Bendigo Community Bank will open the Expo at 12 noon, and present The Michael Hallam INCA award for innovative new ceramics presented by the Warrandyte Riverside Market; and the Lions Club Award for the best stand.

Music, entertainment and a couple of coffee and food vans are par of the course with live music on both days (lineup to be advised) that usually runs all afternoon. The Manningham Arts Centre and Clayworks will offer children's clay workshops all weekend and there'll be wheel throwing demonstrations for the public. A very special workshop will be held at the Mechanics Institute, corner Yarra and Mitchell streets, Warrandyte on Monday 25 February 2019 with Expo's guest artists Yves Gaget at 10am.

CLICK HERE to book and attend. Tickets are $150. A master of terre vernissee, Yves will demonstrate his techniques for making and decorating with slips and engobes on terracotta clay. You will have the opportunity to make and decorate your own pieces in the afternoon. Beginners to advanced are welcome.

Head out for a very pleasant and laid-back day by the banks of the river, nestled amongst the trees. Enjoy some great coffee, amazing crepes filled with delicious savoury or sweet goodness, and enjoy the music as you browse through creative and outstanding work by some of the best artisans in the business, nestled amongst the tall trees. With a focus on promoting high quality, innovative ceramics by Australian studio ceramic artists, there's something to suit everyone's taste.

Cups to GO and Plates to GO will be operating as it has been in prior years. Cups and plates made by the exhibitors will be for sale at the Expo, which you then use to put your food on and your drink in, once purchased from the vendors, if you so wish. Coffee will be from Wendy and Jelle's coffee van and the delicious crepes and salads from Stephane le Grand.
