An ever-popular ceramics market will be returning to Loughborough town centre next month.

Ceramics in Charnwood will be in the Market Place on Sunday May 8, 2022 and will be running from 10am until 4pm. It is the 12th year the market will be operating after being invited back by Charnwood Borough Council.

Cllr Jenny Bokor, lead member for Loughborough, said: “It is fantastic to see the return of the ceramics market to Loughborough.

“The pottery that they have to offer is of the highest quality and I am so excited to have a look around myself and I encourage residents to come down to Market Place to do the same.”

The pottery festival, which is a free event, features around 80 exhibitors from the East Midlands selling a huge variety of handmade sculptures.

Muddy Fingers Pottery will also be offering sessions for residents to decorate their own pot or tile before being able to watch it fired in a Raku kiln. Their work will then be rapidly cooled allowing residents to take it home the same day.

Pottery equipment and tools will also be on sale throughout the day at the market.

The potters this year will be making a pot to sell on the charity stall. The proceeds from this pot will be donated to the Disaster Emergency Committee Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
