Curtis Benzle - Porcelain - Colour and Light - 10th - 16th September 2017
The class is open to everyone.  While in the past we have had many exceptional artists in the class, we have also had many people with no previous experience with clay.  We will require no previous knowledge of ceramics again this year as we will be using specific techniques that do not require any "art talent". 
Rachel Wood - The infinite vessel - Rachel Wood - 16th - 22nd July 2017
A lively approach to coiling, pinching and surface decoration.Handbuilding. For all
Hand Building & Smoke Firing Course at the Moulin with Frances Marr - 11th - 17th June 2017
Over the the course of the week we will explore smoke-firing techniques resulting from the interaction of clay and fire. 

International Ceramics Festival – Aberystwyth 3-5 July 2009

Well, time flies, I have just seen that the ICF tickets go on sale in a couple of weeks – 1 November to be precise. For my money, this is a really GREAT festival to go to. There is just so much to see and to learn! We already have brief details on the site, but there will be more… Guest demonstrators at present include Sandy Brown, Jack Doherty, Jeff Shapiro, Jean Nicolas Gerard, Regina Heinz, Shozo Michikawa and Don Reitz. With firings by Tom Barnett, Peter Hayes and Nina Hole

Studiopottery.co.uk will be sponsoring the student award for the third time – yes we are getting quite long in the tooth! We were in fact launched in April 2000!

The tickets aren’t cheap but they are VERY good value at £120 or £90 for students for the whole Festival or £70 for Saturday , £60 on Sunday.

Mention our name when you call to book your tickets – and you WON’T get a discount, but we will appreciate it! BUT DO BOOK EARLY as the tickets disappear very quickly!!

Look at the event listing on our site – or just phone them on 01970-623232 or go through the website www.internationalceramicsfestival.org

I hope to see some of you there next July:)
