Potfest in the Pens, Penrith 4 to 6 August

Always a stimulating three days with lots to explore and plenty to think about. I particularly enjoy the competition, where exhibitors are invited to respond to the year’s theme by making something outside their usual boundaries. In previous years we have seen very witty pieces as well as some majestic sculptures and serious multi-piece offerings. This year’s theme is ‘Bird Bath - Flight of Fancy’ -not to be missed!
