Scottish Potters Association

(SPA) is a members’ run organisation managed by a committee, elected each year, under a Chair who is  elected for three years.

The SPA aims to promote any activity which in the opinion of the members will further their collective and individual interests as potters/ceramicists and to raise the standards and awareness of the craft when possible. The SPA is open to any individual or organisation with an interest in pottery or ceramics, whether professional or amateur.
