Art in Action: 21-24 July 2011.

One of the great Craft Festivals in Britain. They say:

“A festival of fine art and master craftsmanship which attracts over 25,000 visitors over 4 days each July in the grounds of Waterperry House, Oxfordshire. Over 150 artists demonstrate their skills in painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, calligraphy, illustration, glass, metalwork, jewellery, nature in art, textiles, woodwork and more. Visitors can also experience live music and performing arts from around the world, hear lectures on a variety of subjects and learn from the teachers in the hugely popular practical classes. Art in Action champions art in all forms and styles so visitors can find everything from traditional crafts to cutting edge contemporary arts. Every year, artists are invited to exhibit what they consider their best work in the ‘Best of the Best’ tent, this is a particularly good place for the visitor to start as it gives a comprehensive overview of the scale and quality of the event.” and they are right! Visit their website for an offer saving £10 – 2 tickets for £20 instead of £30 at  www.artinaction.org.uk

For us the ceramics area is fascinating with some top class demonstrators, but there really is something for everyone! Try not to miss this one if you love ceramics or crafts generally – it is for you!
