What is Potfest? And Let’s Have One in Dorset

There are a few events that celebrate the work of potters but Potfest is one that brings ceramic works to open park spaces in the north of England and Scotland and it would be great if we had one in Dorset too.

Potfest 2018 is a ceramic show – putting public and potters together. Meet the potters, talk pots, and buy direct from the maker.

Over 100 exhibitors invited from all over Europe and beyond. All with very distinctive individual styles, all passionate about working with clay.

The venue, Hutton-in-the-Forest, is a cultural destination in itself with it’s historic house, walled garden, topiary terraces and woodland walks. The ceramics festival takes place in and around marquees in front of the castle, with the potters special competition pieces on the lawn, juxtaposing ancient architecture and modern ceramics. This year’s competition theme will be announced shortly.

Hutton-in-the-Forest lies 5 miles northwest of Penrith, Cumbria (M6 junction 41) – on the edge of the stunningly beautiful Lake District National Park…  (Postcode CA11 9TH for sat navs).

Potfest in the Park 2018 – July 27th-29th
Fri, Sat & Sun 10am – 5pm daily

It would be great to have a Potfest in our home county of Dorset. What do you think?
