North and South Wales Potters and Aberystwyth Arts Centre present the 17th International Ceramics Festival, a biennial event initiated in 1987. With its enduring popularity, it is the UK’s leading festival of ceramics. The event features demonstrations, kiln firings, performances and talks from distinguished international practitioners from a variety of ceramic practices. It offers working potters, artists, teachers, students, collectors and lovers of ceramics and craft, the chance to see ceramicists demonstrate their technique and meet them to discuss their ideas and processes.
The Festival takes place throughout the Arts Centre, with demonstrations in the Hall, lectures, films and illustrated talks in the Theatre and Cinema and various trade stands housed in marquees outside. Kiln building and firings take place in the outside areas. In addition, Festival visitors will be able to see numerous exhibitions of ceramics, within the Arts Centre galleries, in the Student Union and outside in the marquees. There is also the opportunity to buy guest demonstrators’ work from a special selling exhibition which is only available during the Festival weekend.
A full 2023 programme will be available next year. Demonstrators will be announced in the second half of 2022.
