Claypool grew from an idea nurtured by a handful of potters in October 2012. We envisioned a space as much a community of like-minded souls as it would be a centre for creative energy. We also recognised the need for this in Sydney where studio space is rare and expensive.Formed in May 2013, Claypool has quickly grown into a buzzing pottery studio that reaches out to professional and non-professional potters. Our members create everything from tableware, ceramic jewellery, sculptures to architectural fittings. Run as a collective by the core potters, Claypool is enriched by the breadth of talent of its members, who use the resources of the studio and enjoy a happy and productive environment. We also are open to casual users, and provide firing services in electric kilns.Claypool runs a series of classes, exhibitions and educational events for members, collectors and enthusiastic supporters of clay. We offer ongoing membership which provides access to the studio’s facilities for professional and amateur potters, ceramicists and sculptors working in clay. Members have unlimited use of the studio whilst daily drop-ins can attend 7 days a week, between the hours of 10am and 5pm when there is someone on duty. Firing services and studio facilities are also provided to non-members.
