Potters and ceramic artists from the Northern Rivers region open their hearts and their studios to the public for two unique days this August as part of the fantastic 2017 North Coast Mud Trail.
From 10am to 4pm on Saturday 19 August and Sunday 20 August, local potters and ceramicists welcome art lovers, adventurers, the curious and other interested members of the public to step inside their creative spaces and explore the wonderful world of ceramics.
The 2017 North Coast Mud Trail is part of the fifth annual Australian Ceramics Open Studios event, hosted by the Australian Ceramics Association to showcase diverse talents and practices of Australian artists working in clay.
Mud Trail member Suvira McDonald said the Australian ceramics scene was dynamic and exciting, with local Northern Rivers ceramic artists and potters making a unique contribution.
‘Over the North Coast Mud Trail weekend, visitors can see practical demonstrations, get their hands dirty in workshops, be inspired by artists’ talks, purchase original ceramics direct from the maker, and soak up the atmosphere of a working studio,’ Suvira said.
‘The Mud Trail traverses the beautiful terrain of the Northern Rivers region, from the coastline to the hinterland hills, and along the way mud trekkers will experience the extraordinary talents of our local artists and be inspired by the enduring beauty of clay, fire and colour.’
Studios of local potters and ceramic artists will be open from 10am to 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday August 19 and 20, and entry is free.
