FRI 3 – SUN 5 JULY 2015

Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Mid Wales, UK



The 2015 International Ceramics Festival, the UK’s leading festival of ceramics, took place at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre on the mid-Wales coast over the weekend of Friday 3 – Sunday 5 July 2015.

The well-established festival has become a highlight on the crafts calendar since its launch in 1987 and offers both hobbyists, leading potters and ceramic artists the opportunity to meet distinguished international practitioners.

The line-up for the 15th International Ceramics Festival, one of the world’s greatest ceramic events, was secured by organisers North and South Wales Potters and Aberystwyth Arts Centre and featured guest artists from Thailand, India, Spain, France, Philippines, Serbia, Canada and the USA – it was truly an international event!

We look forward to the next one in 2017.
