If you find yourself cradling a charming handmade cup of mulled wine at our upcoming openings, we’ll let you in on the story behind it.

The appeal of working with clay and rubbing shoulders with like-minded makers in a creative centre has long-standing appeal. Just ask the current Director, Julian Centofanti, who took over the Carlton Arts Centre in 1993, and continues to manifest the wonderful feeling that the centre holds.

Since its establishment in 1975, the pottery school has offered beginner, intermediate, and expert ceramicists not only a place to throw, sculpt, and fire clay, but also a supportive hub where you are encouraged to return to hone your art, year after year. The welcoming staff have been with the centre for over 10 years, and students tend to return to the centre after the 8-week term ends, to deepen their learning.

Chapter House Lane thanks Dimitra for organising the donations. To find out more about the Carlton Arts Centre, please click here.
