Visiting a pottery show or market is a great way to discover ceramics and meet with artists, makers and studios.
You will be able to admire some incredible pieces as well as to purchase mugs, bowls, vases, sculptures and jewellery for yourself or to make presents. The community of ceramics makers is a very friendly and supportive one.
Last year (2020), many of the shows and markets were cancelled. This year (2021), organisers are expecting restrictions to be released and are prepared to announce their shows. We will update our page as the information is published.
Potters across the UK are willing to meet with their public again, either at a show or in their studios. So please come to meet us!
Would you like us to include your ceramic show or market in this section? Please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org mentioning the nature of your event, the dates and location. We are publishing UK only events exclusively showing pottery and ceramics pieces.
