Craft In Focus is delighted to be returning to Waterperry Gardens with their Celebrating Ceramics Festival from 15-17 July. Last year’s event was extremely well-received by the public especially given the current interest in ceramics following TV programmes such as The Great Pottery Throw Down and many celebrities taking up ceramics as a hobby.
The festival will showcase over 130 diverse makers from the world of contemporary ceramics including many who are renowned within the ceramics community. The event will be held in open-sided marquees adjacent to the beautiful grounds of Waterperry Gardens, home to the popular Art in Action event for 40 years.
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. 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!
The festival will be fun for all ages and will include an exciting range of food, drink and live music.
Early Bird Tickets can be purchased at a reduced price in advance from the website www.celebratingceramics.co.uk
