JamFactory has facilities in the Adelaide CBD and in 2013, Seppeltsfield welcomed the opening of JamFactory to the Barossa estate - the first regional extension of JamFactory's Adelaide origins and new chapter to the region's art tourism offering. The contemporary craft & design studios, gallery and shop is located within the Seppeltsfield estate itself and is housed in an historic 1850s stables building, which has been extensively renovated whilst maintaining elements of original rural charm. 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.

Located in the Seppeltsfield complex, a visit mixed with a visit to Fino Restaurant. The gallery has some interesting pieces but the best part of the visit is watching the different artisans at work. Sadly, our visit was on a public holiday and there wasn't all of them there. We spent about 30 minutes inside the complex and that was ample time.

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.
