NC Potters Conference


For the past thirty-two years, the Randolph Arts Guild in Asheboro, NC, has done a fine job of hosting the North Carolina Potters Conference. Here at the North Carolina Pottery Center in nearby Seagrove, NC, we are honored to begin organizing and implementing the conference starting with the 2020 conference! Join us March 5-8, 2020, as we explore The Similarities in our Differences.  

About the NC Potters Conference

The North Carolina Potters Conference is the Southeast’s premier ceramics conference. Through its history, the conference has featured some of the best ceramics artists from around the world. This conference centers on simultaneous demonstrations cultivating a dialogue of techniques, concepts, and experiences between the artists and the audience. Unlike other conferences, you do not have to pick and choose which workshops to attend. All the demonstrations and presentations are scheduled for the entire group. Potters at any skill level will come away with new ideas and inspiration to improve their work. Even non-potters have found the weekend a worthwhile introduction into the world of ceramics.

About the North Carolina Pottery Center

The North Carolina Pottery Center is a private nonprofit organization Sharing North Carolina’s Clay Stories, Past and Present! By doing so, we promote appreciation and awareness of the history, heritage, and ongoing tradition of pottery-making in our great state.
