The International Ceramics Festival is the UK’s leading international ceramics event, attracting over 800 participants to a series of lectures, practical demonstrations and exhibitions over three days. The focus is both practical and inspirational – kilns are built and fired, pots made and demonstrations given. Guest artists also have their own workspace enabling more in depth discussions and exchange of ideas. Over the years the Festival has built up a reputation for featuring some of the world’s best known ceramic artists and potters.
