A diverse array of work will be on sale, from classic homewares and lighting to purely ornamental and quirky one-off pieces, showcasing a wide range of techniques, styles, textures and colours.  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 the show, visitors will be able to browse and buy, meet the makers and watch free demonstrations. There will be ceramics-inspired creative workshops for children and families during the weekend (see below for event details).
