WPA Potters' Market 2017


Saturday 22nd July 2017
The Transit Shed
Exeter Quay
10 – 5.30pm

We have again our lovely outdoor venue on Exeter Quay as the backdrop to this popular selling event, where WPA members show and sell our pots to the public. This year, by potters’ request, we have extended the opening time. Also following on from evaluations last year, we will be setting up the 6 × 2.6’ tables in two rectangular groups at the Transit Shed, to allow the public to browse around the tables more, whilst protecting the privacy of potters to have some protected space behind their table too.
We still have room for a few more participants for this Potters’ Market event. If interested in participating, please send a cheque for £28, as fee for a 6 × 2.6’ folding table, or £14 for a half table to share, along with your booking form, to:
Elaine Hughes, 7 Westwood, Cockwood, Exeter, Devon EX6 8RW
Please make your cheque payable to: Westcountry Potters Association

Booking forms have been issued with WPA newsletters 145 – 147.

if you wish to have half a table, it would be desirable if you can find another potter to share the table with, thanks.
On 22nd July, unloading is from about 8.15am at the Quay and you will then need to repark your car further along the street. There are three disabled parking spaces next to the Transit Shed, plus several cafes and toilets nearby. Exhibitors’ guidelines and Terms and Conditions have been sent out.
We are looking forward to another happy and successful Potters’ Market. Please advertise it widely on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and any other sources. See you there!
