Aberystwyth Ceramics Festival

If you are interested in going to the Aberystwyth Ceramics Festival this summer, dates are 29th June - 1st July,, there may be a chance of some accommodation for one or two if you email Andrew Nicholls
Since it began in 1987 the International Ceramics Festival has grown to become the UK's leading ceramics event. It offers teachers, students, ceramic artists, collectors, working potters and amateurs alike the chance to meet and study the work of distinguished, internationally known craftspersons from Wales, the UK and many countries worldwide.
The Festival attracts about 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, many new to this country and 2007 will be no exception.
During the festival there are also selling exhibitions, bookstands and a comprehensive display of products from leading pottery manufacturers and suppliers. The aim is to make the weekend as relaxed and accessible as possible.
