Barnstaple: Third Festival of Ceramics


The Pannier Market
Butchers Row
EX31 1BW
Entry £3 or £5 for two adults. Under 16s free entry

The Festival of Ceramics is now in its third year, led by festival organiser Tracey Benton. WPA exhibitors are delighted to again have over 20 exhibitors selling work at this emerging South west event, out of a total of over 70 studio ceramicists and artists, at the same venue as in 2018, the wonderful Barnstaple Pannier Market. Our exhibition co-ordinator Anna Hearn is planning a dedicated WPA demonstration table with five demonstrators showing a range of skills throughout the day. Our new Chairman Martin Harbour will also be overseeing WPA involvement on this special day, so we look forward to seeing you there

Attached are final exhibitor instructions and links to disabled parking, from Tracey Benton, Festival organiser. Have a great show
