Potters who show and sell their wares at art shows and events should consider purchasing pottery liability insurance. The Artists, Crafters, and Tradesmen Insurance Program was designed to help artists and crafters, like potters, get the insurance coverage they need at an affordable price. We understand your industry and are eager to help you accomplish your goals and move forward in your business.
ACT offers two liability insurance policies for potters to choose from. The annual policy is ideal for the potter who attends multiple shows and events a year. It also includes some additional coverage which you can learn more about at our policy comparison page.
Our show policy offers great coverage for a potter who attends events no more than twice a year. It offers more limited coverage than the annual policy but is still a great policy for a potter who attends occasional shows. To see a side-by-side comparison of these policies, visit our comparison page.
Having ACT Insurance can give you peace of mind as you work to make your handmade pottery business successful.
There are many other artists, crafters, and tradesmen, however, that also would benefit from ACT Insurance’s policies. Some of these include:
Potters liability insurance is a unique coverage designed to help you pay for claims arising from bodily injury or property damage.
Whether you sell your products at events, in stores, or online, accidents can still occur and leave you financially responsible for medical bills, repair costs, legal fees, and more. Having potters liability insurance can help to lower (or eliminate) what you owe for a liability claim.
Depending on the type of policy you choose, a short-term show policy or an annual policy, the limits of liability and types of coverage can vary. The show policy is made for vendors who only need 1–90 days of consecutive general liability insurance—whereas the annual policy is for potters who manage their business online, need general and product liability insurance, and year-round coverage for events.
Please see the Show Policy and Annual Policy coverage details to learn more.

Yes! Your art and small business are valuable assets that deserve to be insured the same way you would your home, vehicle, or health. A single claim can lead to hundreds (or thousands) of dollars in bills, legal fees, or even damage to your reputation.
Most events, stores, and online marketplaces also require you to carry liability insurance. For events, you typically need to have proof of insurance and hold a current general liability policy. This helps to insure you against claims of slips, trips, and falls. It’s also beneficial in the event of unexpected weather conditions.
If you sell your pottery in stores or online marketplaces (like Etsy, Jane, or Amazon), you need a plan that offers both general and product liability insurance. This goes beyond covering claims caused by your business operations. If your work injures someone or damages their property, such as cuts on skin or discoloration on surfaces, you may be covered by your insurance policy.
You never know when an accident can occur, so it’s best to be preventative with your protection rather than struggling without coverage once something happens. Buying a policy now can save you time, money, and stress later. After all, your work is your passion—and that passion deserves to be protected.
