Conferences are currently held each year in various parts of the country.
These are organised by regional groups under the guidance of the NZP national administrative body.
Conference organisers have the autonomy to create whatever programme they think is suitable.
This often includes:
workshops by notable local artists and ceramists from overseas.
lectures on practical and more abstract subjects
tours of local pottery studios and sites of interest to potters
festivities often including a dinner and dance
Annual General Meeting
The AGM is usually, but not necessarily, timed to coincide with the conference.
New Zealand Potters (Inc.)
Registered as an incorporated society in 1965 by an enthusiastic group of potters in Wellington, New Zealand, NZ Potters (Inc.) has grown to become a significant international voice in New Zealand ceramics. The affiliation of about three dozen independent pottery clubs throughout New Zealand together with a number of corporate businesses greatly increases its effective membership. We are a national, not-for-profit organisation representing the interests of practising potters and ceramicists, students of ceramics and all those interested in New Zealand ceramics. We actively support and promote quality, and we encourage and support specialist ceramics education nationally.
