Founded in 1974, the Scottish Potters Association (SPA) is a charity (SCIO) which aims to promote all aspects of hand-made pottery and ceramics in Scotland.

Linking Scotland’s geographically remote potters we offer a source of information and advice on everything connected to clay. Our membership includes professional, amateur/hobby potters and students.

Positive benefits to members include:

  • Access to our annual residential weekend with national and international guest demonstrators and lecturers
  • Regular workshops
  • Regular opportunities to network with other Scottish potters
  • Illustrated quarterly newsletter with free advertising for members
  • Annual members’ exhibition(s)
  • Access to the Members' only area of the website with For sale/wanted, Hints and Tips, current year Newsletters available for digital download, useful Links and an Information section

  • Promotion of your classes/courses and events you are involved in on the website and through our various social media platforms.

We welcome overseas members but can only offer a digital copy of the newsletter.

To join as a student, you must provide a photo of your current student ID and must be a full-time student.

To join as an intern or apprentice, you must supply details of the pottery you are attached to and the SPA membership number of your supervising potter. Note that people simply attending pottery classes do not qualify for this category and should join as an individual or senior citizen as appropriate.
