Formed in June, 2003, Gladstone Clayworks is a non profit pottery cooperative studio. It is a place where members pursue their love of clay in a creative, inspiring and supportive atmosphere. While developing their own work, members encourage the work of others, work safely at all times, and contribute to the ongoing needs and future stability of the co-operative by offering their time and effort when required.We are housed in what was previously an old bread factory, but is now a building increasingly dedicated to artists and artisans working in a variety of media. The studio itself is a brightly lit, warm space of 1800 square feet. It has easy ground-floor access with parking right outside the door.
We also have a gallery where our members can host private or group exhibitions.
We sell our work in the gallery but do not have regular working hours yet. We are open if a member happens to be in the studio, which, is most of the time. If the door is open and the lights are on, come on in. We can only accept cheques or cash.
