Conversations . Demonstrations . Ceramic Geekery . National Pottery Lottery . And More
We may not be meeting in person this year, but that’s not going to stop us from giving you an all singing all dancing Festival of Ceramics … it’s just going to be online instead.
We have lined up a series of demonstrations running throughout both Friday and Saturday from 10 til 4 to include: throwing, raku, hand building, slab building, tile making, sgraffito, surface decoration, pit firing, turning, monoprinting and more
There’ll be a Potter’s Question Time with some eminent panellists; it’s like the BBC’s popular Gardener’s Question Time, but instead of plants, we’re geeking out over pots. You’ll have the chance to submit your questions in advance as well as ask some probing questions live on the day. PQT is being hosted by our friends at Westcountry Potters Association.
There’s more …
Take a sneaky peak inside working studios with our live studio tours
There will be spotlight interviews throughout the two days where selected artists will be in conversation from their respective studios talking about their creative life, work, obstacles & challenges, joys and inspirations. We have an exciting announcement to make about who will be hosting some of these!
The National Pottery Lottery
Boy do we have an awesome line up of ceramics for you to win in our brand new fundraising raffle: The National Pottery Lottery
40 artists from this year’s Clay: a VIRTUAL festival of ceramics have donated a piece of work. The tickets will be just £2 each (the same price as a national lottery ticket) and you’ll be able to buy as few or as many as you choose. Each ticket will give you the chance to win one of our incredible ceramic prizes.
The money raised from the National Pottery Lottery will be distributed evenly amongst our contributing exhibitors and the organiser (who will not receive any income from events until next Summer). It’s tough times for the arts and for large scale events right now.
Once Upon a Time …
Harking back to 2019 when we were able to safely mingle in real life.
Last year’s event took place in the Historic Pannier Market in barnstaple, North Devon.
For 2020 we made the decision to move our event to a new and more central location: Exeter Racecourse
We are looking forward to meeting your there in person in 2021.
SAVE THE DATE: Sept 24th & 25th 2021
