International Ceramics Festival

Abersytwyth Arts Centre, University Of Wales, Penglais, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion SY23 3GL, UK 01970 623232

The festival is held at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on the campus of Aberystwyth University on the mid-Wales coast. Since it began in 1987 the three-day festival has grown to become the UK’s leading ceramics event.

It offers teachers, students, ceramic artists, collectors, working potters and amateurs the chance to meet and study the work of distinguished, internationally known potters and ceramicists from Wales, the UK and around the world .

The Festival attracts about 1000 people who attend lectures, watch practical demonstrations and visit our special exhibitions over three days. Our international demonstrators show skills and techniques on our specially adapted stage and also have their own workspaces – enabling personal discussion about their work. The focus is both practical and inspirational – kilns are built, pots are made and fired.

During the festival there are also selling exhibitions, bookstands and a comprehensive display of products from pottery equipment manufacturers and suppliers.

The festival is organised jointly by North Wales Potters, South Wales Potters and the Aberystwyth Arts Centre. The aim is to make our weekend event as relaxed and accessible as possible.
