Windmill Pottery Artist Residency

Sheldon, Redland City Area

Windmill Pottery is the only pottery in Australia that digs and prepares its own clay on site. A budding international potter or ceramicist will have the unique experience of working with naturally processed clay using techniques developed by the resident master potter.

Residencies differ slightly to our popular internship program, in that accommodation and a valet service are provided. Residencies can be as short as one week, but they recommend four weeks, Monday to Saturday. A resident potter can complete an internship equivalent to their normal Intern Program.

Experienced potters will broaden their skills and are encouraged to explore new avenues of ceramic production.

Accommodation is provided locally at Mt Cotton Retreat in self-contained twin share cabins located in a temperate forest. A valet service is provided by the Pottery will deliver you to and from your accommodation.
