Since it began in 1987 the three-day festival has grown to become the UK's leading ceramics event. The Festival attracts about 1000 people who attend lectures, watch practical demonstrations and visit our special exhibitions over three days. The international demonstrators show skills and techniques on our specially adapted stage and also have their own workspaces – enabling personal discussion about their work. The focus is both practical and inspirational – kilns are built, pots are made and fired.
