Showcasing some of the finest ceramics currently being made by individual makers in the UK and Europe.
Art in Clay Hatfield is an outdoor summer event held in marquees in the beautiful parklands of Hatfield House. A large event of over 190 exhibitors, which also includes a full programme of talks and demonstrations, a Throw-a-Pot marquee if you'd like to have a go and a Make and Take area for families to get their hands on clay and be creative.
Art in Clay Farnham is a smaller indoor event held in the lead up to Christmas - a good place to pick up a unique hand made gift. The Maltings is a beautiful old building in the heart of Farnham, which over the last few years has been tastefully refurbished. The work has made the building more accessible, but has kept all it's character and charm.
The shows are organised by Andy and Di Mcinnes. They have been interested in ceramics for many years , initially meeting potters on the craft circuit and at exhibitions, then searching them out in their workshops, always welcomed and usually leaving with a purchase. They wound up their craft business in 1997 when Di decided to return to nursing full time; Andy then took on the challenge of organising these shows, which at the time were owned by an exhibition company. In 2005 they bought the shows and haven't looked back. Di recently took early retirement from the Health Service to concentrate all her efforts on the shows.
