Founded in 1977 the NPA are celebrating their 40th anniversary.
The aim of the NPA is to encourage and support artists in the production of sculptural, functional, fine art and decorative studio pottery in all its forms throughout the North of England.
Membership is open to anyone and everyone with an interest in ceramics. We currently have about 500 members, mostly in the North of England.
We publish a two-monthly newsletter, and organise a mix of open and selected exhibitions, plus demonstrations and workshops, throughout the year. The NPA is a not-for-profit organisation run by a committee of volunteers.
