Understand the creative talent first-hand with demonstrations from some of the artists. Meet and purchase directly from 140 of the leading ceramic artists. There will also be an amazing range of food, drink and music to complement your day.
Celebrating Ceramics is organised by Craft In Focus, who have been staging contemporary mixed discipline craft events for over 20 years. Part of the organising team includes the curator of the ceramics section of Art in Action for 26 years, who has a real passion for ceramics and want to keep the festival ethos of Art In Action at the heart of Celebrating Ceramics.
The public can now expect an event with the same atmosphere as Art In Action and a loyal following of ceramic artists who want to demonstrate and meet their collecting public at this wonderful three-day event.
Celebrating Ceramics will showcase a stunning collection of diverse artists from the world of contemporary ceramics. This fine selection of artistic talent will be set on the lawns that hosted the internationally acclaimed Art In Action for 40 years.
