This past June, I participated in a pottery festival. Yep, a festival just for potters! The company that was hosted the festival was a part of my community ,so I decided that it would be a fun weekend talking shop with the other potters. My expectations for the event really didn't go beyond that. I made pots I wanted to make and had a good time prepping.
From the moment the festival began, every person who came into the tent was interested in pots! There were students, potters and pottery appreciators galore. People purchased pots that were complicated and hard to make and left the simple pots alone. Plus, they wanted to share their connection with clay. The experience was eye opening and worth the effort to look for another pottery festival.
Have any other potters out there participated in a festival just for potters? What was your experience?
