Pottery Throwdown Announced
Written: 24 April 2017
The Pottery Throwdown Returns to The Contemporary Craft Festival
We love The Pottery Showdown and we are delighted that it will be returning to the Festival in June. Richard & Freya will be joining us from Series 2 and Major Tom & Jim from Series 1 for another round of challenges and lots of messy fun. You can meet all our Throwdown Stars throughout the weekend, buy the ceramics they make and challenge them in our Festival Throwdown.
Internationally respected potter Kevin Millward is guest judge and challenge setter for the Throwdown (he also set all the challenges on the TV programme), which is presented in association with Potclays, Schumacher College, Dartington and Simple Things magazine.
During the Throwdown, daily challenges will be set to test visitors’ skills with clay and potters’ wheels, which have been generously supplied by Potclays from Stoke on Trent.
