About the Scottish Potters Association

The Scottish Potters Association is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO, number SC048850) registered with the Office of the Scottish Charities Register.

Our aims are to raise awareness of pottery in Scotland and to raise standards in the craft. We promote any activity which, in the opinion of our members, will further their collective and individual interests as potters/ceramicists and raise the standards and awareness of the craft when possible.

We are run by members for members and we work to support our members whether they are experienced professionals or just getting started.  If you want to know more about our committee, click here.

The SPA is open to anyone with an interest in pottery and ceramics in Scotland including professionals, amateurs/hobby potters and students

We offer workshops, exhibitions and other opportunities for networking throughout the year as well as a quarterly newsletter packed with features about what our members have been up to as well as useful hints and tips.

We also get involved in partner events such as Potfest at the Palace and Hey Clay!
