JamFactory is a unique not-for-profit organisation that supports and promotes outstanding design and craftsmanship through its widely acclaimed studios, galleries and shops. Supported by the South Australian Government, key donors and partners, JamFactory is recognised nationally and internationally as a centre for excellence in craft and design.
Purpose-built studios for ceramics, glass, furniture and metal design provide skills training for artists and designers through a rigorous two-year Associate Training Program. Students often have the chance to contribute to national commission projects through the studios, and sell their individual work in JamFactory shops.
The exhibition spaces in Adelaide and the Barossa showcase local, national and international work by leading practitioners and emerging artists, presenting curated shows and public programs which nurture the careers of talented artists.
JamFactory's three shops provide a carefully curated range of handcrafted ceramics, glassware, jewellery, furniture and indigenous art, with purchases from their shops directly supporting individual artists.
