Sat 27 - Sun 28 Nov, Stamford Arts Centre exhibitions, local events
Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th November 10am—4:30pm
The Stamford Pottery Market was founded by potter Katherine Winfrey to fulfil a vision to showcase the diverse range of work being produced by local potters and to support charitable causes. Held annually in the Stamford Arts Centre, the market proved a great success until the Covid-19 pandemic caused a pause.
Katherine has handed over the organisation of the event to a committee of potters, who hope to build on her legacy. And after 4 false starts due to the lockdowns – the 10th Anniversary event can now take place in the Stamford Arts Centre Ballroom on 27 & 28 November 2021.
Over 20 local potters will display and sell their work at this 2-day celebration of ceramics. There will be something for everyone from beautiful domestic ware, quirky ornaments and garden sculptures to jewellery and tiles.
This provides an opportunity for visitors to chat with the makers about their different techniques and to vote for their favourite to win a prize. Visitors will also have the opportunity to take a VR tour of a potter’s studio, including a throwing demo.
There will be a charity tombola of items made by the potters in aid of Thorpe Hall Hospice.
With free admission and an exciting fun atmosphere, the organisers are hoping the pottery market will be well received and supported.
