About us

The Craft Potters Association of Great Britain (CPA) was established in 1958, and is the national body representing ceramic artists in the UK. Its aim is to advance and encourage the creation of fine works in ceramics, and to foster and extend the interests of the public in such objects and to promote their value in society. The CPA was founded by a small group of potters as a Friendly Society and now has some 150 Fellows, 200 Professional and 500 Associate members including internationally recognised makers as well as many potters at the start of their careers. If you are interested in joining the CPA either as an Associate Member or as a Professional Member (membership by selection) please contact [email protected] for details.

We also run the Contemporary Ceramics Centre right across from the British Museum in central London displaying work by our members as well as regular group and solo exhibitions in the Emmanuel Cooper Gallery.
