* Head on over to our NEW Festival of Ceramics website *

We may not be meeting in person this year, but that's not going to stop us from giving you an all singing all dancing Festival of Ceramics ... it's just going to be online instead.


We have lined up a series of demonstrations running throughout both Friday and Saturday from 10 til 4 to include: throwing, raku, hand building, slab building, tile making, sgraffito, surface decoration, pit firing, turning, monoprinting and more


There'll be a Potter's Question Time with some eminent panellists; it's like the BBC's popular Gardener's Question Time, but instead of plants, we're geeking out over pots. You'll have the chance to submit your questions in advance as well as ask some probing questions live on the day. PQT is being hosted by our friends at Westcountry Potters Association.


There's more ...


Take a sneaky peak inside working studios with our live studio tours


There will be spotlight interviews throughout the two days where selected artists will be in conversation from their respective studios talking about their creative life, work, obstacles & challenges, joys and inspirations. We have an exciting announcement to make about who will be hosting some of these!


And we're also hosting a National Pottey Lottery where you'll have the chance to win one of 40 pots for a £2 ticket. The funds will be used to compensate exhibitors for loss of income after shows have been cancelled this year.


I know, it's going to be great!
