Christmas Ceramics Market
On 18/19 December we will hold the inaugural Christmas Ceramics Market at the new Turning Earth ceramics centre in Haringey. The new studio will bring the Turning Earth model established in Hoxton and Leyton to North London for the very first time, offering a gym-like monthly membership arrangement for people who want to take up ceramics as a serious hobby, as well as introductory classes for beginners.
During the celebratory Christmas market weekend, 70 ceramicists from Turning Earth’s studios will sell their work, and there will be wheel-throwing and hand-building demos throughout – with the option for visitors to have a go too.
Makers will share their reflections on how the disruption of the pandemic has impacted their work and celebrate some of the positive things it has brought with it. The new Turning Earth centre was itself created in a rising tide of craft participation and in response to the increasing desire for people to live and stay local and invest in the communities on their doorsteps.
A stall selling donated work will raise money for local charities. There’ll also be delicious Vietnamese Street food from Hanoi Ca Phe, mulled wine and mince pies, klezmer from The Turbans and carols from Davey Green.
Come and buy last-minute Christmas presents, and prepare to be inspired – who knows, you may want to come back and get your hands in clay yourself.
