South Wales Potters Exhibition in Monmouth


at Monmouth Museum

Britain’s first -ever regional pottery group is holding a special selling exhibition at Monmouth Museum to help mark its 50th anniversary.
South Wales Potters, a group of 140 crafts people, has arranged with Monmouthshire County Council to hold an exhibition featuring the work of more than 20 working potters.
The exhibition will open on Saturday October 24th and runs through until January 2nd next year. Admission is free and the museum is open daily.
South Wales Potters was formed in 1964 to satisfy the need for a forum in which potters could share and discuss techniques and methods. In those days potters in any one area did not know each other.

Fifty years later the society is going strong, organising events for members and exhibitions for the public to see the work of skilled makers, some of whom are of world renown.
I look forward to exhibiting alongside more than 20 other members of the South Wales Potters Group.
