17 – 19 July 2020
Celebrating Ceramics is an artist led event, showcasing the very best in the world of contemporary ceramics. This fine selection of artistic talent is set against the backdrop of Waterperry House and Gardens. Understand the creative talent first-hand with a range of demonstrations and talks by leading ceramic artists. And there will 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 Sherry Moran, the curator of the ceramics section of Art in Action for 26 years. Sherry has a real passion for ceramics and wanted 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 over 100 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. Our exhibitor list for 2020 will be published early in the spring.
Embrace the opportunity to meet, engage with and purchase directly from the artists, and take time to enjoy the exciting range of food, drink and music on offer in the event’s food village.
Experience a guided tour with ceramic artists and collectors to learn about the stories and inspirations behind the work.
A wide range of demonstrations and talks by selected artists will be ongoing during the festival to offer an insight into the creative process. See and hear first-hand from the artists and understand more about the influences that lead to their unique creations, whilst also discovering the latest news within the international ceramics community.
