The ICF is held every other year at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on the mid-Wales coast. Since it began in 1987 the three-day event has grown and grown in size and stature. It offers teachers, students, ceramic artists, collectors, working potters and amateurs the chance to meet and study the work of distinguished, internationally known potters and ceramicists from Wales, the UK and around the world.
The Festival regularly attracts 1000 visitors from around the globe who attend lectures, watch practical demonstrations and visit special exhibitions over one hectic weekend. The international demonstrators show skills and techniques on a specially adapted stage and also have their own workspaces - enabling personal discussion about their work. The focus is both practical and inspirational - kilns are built, pots are made and fired, contacts and friendships made and renewed.
As ever, there is an amazing line-up of demonstrators for the 2011 Festival. With guest artists from the USA, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Germany, Denmark and from throughout the UK, it is truly an international event.
