The event will be held in open-sided marquees adjacent to the beautiful grounds of Waterperry Gardens and will showcase 150 diverse makers from the world of contemporary ceramics including many who are renowned within the ceramics community.
Amongst the exhibitors will be some of the contestants from The Great Pottery Throw Down series so visitors who have watched the TV programme will see some familiar faces and have a chance to chat and purchase work from the contestants.
The event offers a perfect opportunity to meet, engage with and purchase from a wide range of contemporary ceramic artists, some of whom will be demonstrating on their stands.
The festival will be fun for all ages and will include an exciting range of food, drink and live music.
Each exhibitor has also been set a challenge – to create a miniature version of a piece which represents their work. These will be displayed on their stands so visitors should ensure that they take a look to see the pieces that have been created for this competition!
