JamFactory at Seppeltsfield provides a unique hub for craft and design in the Barossa. The facility provides studio space for professional artisans working in a variety of media including knife making, ceramics, millinery, glass and leather. A separated walkway through the building allows visitors to meet the makers and view there skills in action with public workshops available providing a hands on experience.The gallery presents a diverse program of curated exhibitions showcasing local, national and international work by leading artists, craftspeople and designers and the retail shop provides an extensive range of hand-crafted ceramics, furniture, glassware, jewellery and other collectables by leading Australia artists and designers.

Great experience viewing extensive range of leathercraft, pottery and jewellery and seeing talented artisans working at their craft. All items are handmade on premises. Great setting in old jam factory conducive of bringing out creative talent.

Wandered in here not really knowing what we would find. There was jewellery, pottery, art, leather and the artists also in residence. It is very interesting to see the work actually being done and speak to the artists.

Great place to visit and learn about production. Fantastic products. Great for children to see how jams are made and understand that there is more to it than going to a supermarket and buying a jar.

Thank you for your review, although we only produce fabulous art and craft. Originally, the JamFactory began in an ex Jam Factory in St.Peter's, Adelaide hence the name.
