Driving Creek holds true to Barry Brickell’s vision of being a place thriving with inspiration, innovation and old world values, we share this with our community by running exhibitions and learning programmes, and offer free artist residencies.
The Residency Programme is a unique opportunity for artists to work in Barry Brickell’s historic home and workplace. We provide a place for artistic freedom, collaboration and shared learning, emerging artists develop relationships within the artistic community.
By cultivating connections and bringing artists together to work alongside each other, challenging people to grow within their own craft and as individuals, we encourage and celebrate active contribution from those within our community. Residents also have the chance to exhibit work in our shop and contribute to our learning programmes.

Driving Creek cares for Barry Brickell’s personal collection and the New Zealand Ceramic Heritage Trust’s Collection and continues to archive the multitude of unique works which can be viewed here.
