The Yarrabah Pottery has been in operation since 1990. There are two full-time workers and five part-time workers who work two days a week. Some of the local works are sold in the museum, Tjapukai in Cairns and locally. They specialise in making cups, mugs, plates, bowls, vases, ashtrays and jugs. They use two different ways of shaping and moulding clay, either by hand or on a wheel.
