Update on Studio Access and Classes

Due to the current Covid 19 lockdown and the restrictions in Parramatta LGA, our classes and workshop program is on hold. Our Hunter Street PCAI shopfront Gallery is also closed.

NB: There is no available kiln firing service at the moment.

Rest assured, that all student works made in the previous Term are safe and will be available for collection as soon as we have a safe opening date.

Regarding our Workshops program for 2022, at this stage we are looking at options, but can’t provide any firm dates for recommencing  programs as they were previously, nor can we take future bookings until we have sorted out how to operate under new guidelines.

We are transitioning to online videos and home Clay Kits, (clay and tool kits) that are now being assembled. A link to purchase details will be posted shortly.

To stay notified of any updates please sign up to our Newsletter on the bottom of our home page.

…we provide opportunities for everyone in the community to participate and engage with Ceramics and Artistic play, regardless of what age or past experience.
With our team of experienced and passionate ceramic artists, our mentoring and workshops will take you to your next level of artistic creativity.

PCAI  provides access for community engagement around all forms of handcrafted arts, ceramics, clay and sculptural forms – including acting as a space and resource for community projects and partnerships with tertiary arts institutes, schools, and community organisations. PCAI caters for all ages and the diverse communities of Parramatta and Western Sydney who wish to partake in creative projects, skills development and production.

…we are a vibrant and enthusiastic group of ceramic artists

….. keen to explore our craft and share it with the wider community.

Our Vision

The vision to develop a ceramic arts enterprise was born out of the combined drive and initiative of the founding members who wish to achieve the following:-
To establish an artist-run and owned social enterprise business to provide employment opportunities for artists and associated stakeholders

  • To provide a local arts venue for the benefit, input and participation of the general community.
  • To provide disadvantaged and marginalised members of the community with creative and social engagement that may  lead   to  employment.
  • To establish a creative hub for production of artwork in the Parramatta area
  • To pool resources and buy ceramic materials at wholesale prices
  • To work locally and save fuel and travel costs.
  • To add a vibrant cultural and tourist attraction to the city of Parramatta
