This award-winning cottage industry is on the site of the Old Toolijooa School, beside the Princes Highway about two kilometres south of Gerringong. The old school residence is still there, and in the workshop behind it there are the usual pottery wheels and kilns, and a gallery where finished pots are on display. The potters create mugs, teapots, bowls and casseroles and similar useful things, and often just for fun, owls and pussycats, pelicans, wombats, dragons and little stoneware animals. See lots of pictures on their website. Visitors are always welcome. Depending on the day, you may see pots being made, fired, or glazed. Or just browse about in the display room to see the wide variety of finished items. If you want to be sure the workshop is open, feel free to phone ahead.
