A three-day selling fair featuring 50 potters
Part of the London Design Festival
Friday 25 – Sunday 27 September 10am – 5pm
136 Kingsland Road
Shoreditch, London E2 8EA
The Geffrye Museum’s popular annual celebration of ceramics returns in September, bringing together the work of 50 potters from across the UK- a mix of leading names and rising talents – in a riot of colour, styles, textures and techniques.
A wide range of domestic objects will be on sale, from classic homeware and lighting to ornamental and quirky one-off pieces. Delicate porcelain will be shown alongside earthy stoneware and cool white glazes will contrast with colourful painted vessels and pots. Prices range from £10 for smaller pieces to several hundred pounds for large-scale creations.
Throughout this relaxed and friendly event, visitors can meet the makers, browse, buy and watch demonstrations by featured potters. Free ceramics-inspired creative workshops for children and families will take place during the weekend (see below for event details).
A launch evening, open to all, will take place on Thursday 24 September from 6-8.30pm.
