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. This year’s theme is ‘Bird Bath - Flight of Fancy’ -not to be missed!
