Over 70 artists and makers from across the South West will be gathering in the stunning Victorian Pannier Market in Barnstaple for this year's Clay: A Festival of Ceramics where we celebrate clay in all its forms.


Emerging makers will be exhibiting side by side with familiar faces from the British studio pottery scene in this growing annual event that is becoming a exciting fixture on the UK's show calendar.

Textured Slab built vessels

With France Spice Ceramics

10.30 - 12.30




Cornwall-based artist Frances works in white earthenware to create her stunningly delicate textured pieces that feature her signature tiny hints of gold lustre.


During this 2 hour workshop, Frances will show you how to create your own slab built vessel and guide you through the process of forming your vessel and creating texture.


Your work will be fired and returned for collection from Bideford or you can arrange for postage (P&P applies). The workshop fee includes entry to the event.
