Interests Arts Council Nelson (ACN) Our Mission is to promote, initiate and support projects and activities that stimulate and strengthen the artistic and cultural life of our communities.
Nelson Clay Week is a biennial festival celebrating contemporary ceramic art and showcasing the ever-growing talent of Aotearoa’s pottery community.
Bringing together established and emerging potters, Nelson Clay Week aims to foster connection, promote skills sharing and encourage discussion about the past, present and future of this multi-faceted medium.
This year’s inaugural event will offer a varied programme of workshops and masterclasses carefully curated to inspire practitioners and expand practices. Pottery lovers and the wider community are invited to join in the celebration through a number of public activities and exhibitions across Nelson’s CBD and the Nelson Tasman region. Our programme includes workshops, exhibitions, public demonstrations, a potters' market and more. Keep an eye on our web page, or follow us on social media as we unveil more details about our exciting line-up of events designed to inspire potters and pottery lovers.
