New venue for 2021
Kelham Island Museum, 24th-25th July 2021
Covid forced a change of timing for the festival and has initiated a change of venue. We have moved indoors to the exciting Kelham Island museum whose facilities include a cafe/restaurant and of course many other exhibits and is in the lively Kelham Island district of Sheffield.
About 40 leading and up and coming potter/ceramic artists largely drawn from the environs of Sheffield but also including guest potters from other areas, will be exhibiting and offering work for sale.
Come and enjoy a day out in a vibrant environment talking to and seeing the work of fantastic potters and sculptors, visiting the museum and eating out at one of the many cafes in the area.
Supporting local homelessness Charity
Depaul is a charity that supports homeless young people and have a branch in Sheffield.
Sheffield Ceramics Festival was started seven years ago by founder members Brian Holland, Kaktus Leach and Ken Taylor, later joined by Steve Booton, and although we hoped that it would be successful we did not know how it would develop, but develop we hoped it would. Ken and Steve have moved on but the festival continues at our new venue. We hope to see you there.
Our first six festivals were held in the beautiful walled garden at Meersbrook Park and would not have been possible without the help of hard working volunteers.
Sheffield Ceramics Festival seeks to give back to our community and in 2020 DePaul became our chosen charity thanks to our previous treasurer Ken Taylor. In 2020 we donated £2,000 to DePaul and they continue to be the charity that we will support in 2021.
