Take a short Video Tour of Jamfactory.
JamFactory's purpose-built studios for ceramics, glass, furniture and metal design provide skills and business training for artists and designers through our rigorous two-year Associate training program. Staff and Associates create their own work and collaborate on the development and production of JamFactory products and commissions. JamFactory also provides facility hire and subsidised studio space for independent artists and designers, at both our main location in the Adelaide CBD and our sattelite JamFactory Studio, shops and gallery at Seppeltsfield in the beautiful Barossa Valley.
JamFactory's exhibition spaces showcase local, national and international work by leading practitioners. GalleryOne and GalleryTwo present a diverse program of curated exhibitions featuring works by established and emerging artists, craftspeople and designers. A third gallery at JamFactory Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley displays exhibitions that are often shown in conjunction with major exhibitions at JamFactory Adelaide.
JamFactory's three shops - Morphett Street, Rundle Mall Plaza and JamFactory Seppeltsfield - provide an extensive range of hand-crafted ceramics, glassware, jewellery and other collectables by leading Australian artists and designers including the extraordinary products made on-site in the JamFactory studios. Purchases from our shops directly support individual artists as well as our unique exhibition and training programs.
We offer design and production services, skills workshops for beginners and professionals, education programs for schools and an artist in residence program. We develop exhibitions for regional, national and international touring and we publish high quality exhibition catalogues. Explore this website to find out more.
