In April the National Botanic Garden of Wales and South Wales Potters will host a weekend celebrating clay with workshops, exhibitions, and more.

Visitors to the Botanic Garden will have a rare opportunity to meet some of South Wales’ most talented ceramicists, as over 25 potters gather to exhibit their work in the iconic Great Glasshouse.

Ceramica Botanica is organised by South Wales Potters offers a unique chance to see potters from across the full stretch of South Wales as they gather at the National Botanic Garden of Wales for just this weekend in 2024. 

With the most recent series of The Great Pottery Throwdown having once again thrown the spotlight on pottery, more people than ever are taking an interest in clay. Ceramica Botanica presents the perfect opportunity to explore all that the art of ceramics has to offer, as the potters share their skills and run drop-in workshops throughout the weekend. Visitors will be able to watch demonstrations including raku firing, as well as various making and decoration techniques.

With the potters’ work ranging from gas-fired raku vases to delicate porcelain mugs, jewellery, and more, there is much to see – and most pieces on display will be available for purchase.
