About the show
The 21st Art in Clay Farnham takes place in November. There will be a range of work from newly qualified artists working in clay to potters with many years of creative work behind them. From animal sculptures to kitchen and garden pots with a variety in between to interest anyone that enjoys skilfully crafted objects.

The Maltings is an amazing building and a bit of a rabbit warren. This is the floorplan, the show is on 3 floors, accessible by lifts as well as stairs. On admission to the show we'll give you a free show programme, which has this floor plan and the exhibitors detailed inside.

Some of the highlights of the show
Niek Hoogland, a very popular potter from the Netherlands, will be welcomed back to Farnham, his colourful red terracotta slipware pots, tiles and sculptures will be on display - a real treat for all those interested in pots for food. Pim Van Huisseling, will also be showing her beatifully decorated domestic earthenware pots alongside some one off pieces. Pim is also from the Netherlands and will be sharing a stand with Niek. Francoise Dufayard will also be back this year, great to have her at the show again, her decorative and usable pots are always popular.

Geoffrey Swindell wil be making his debut at Farnham this year, an amazing maker who does few shows, we're very honoured to have him here. Mary Rich will be here again with her beautiful porcelain decorated with lustres and liquid gold, lovely work. A small selection of Newcomers will also be making their debut at Farnham.

The range of exhibitors and work at a show is always exciting, from familiar faces to the up and coming stars of the future. It has become the highlight on the calendar of ceramic and art collectors in the South and South East. There's also a varied programme of Talks and Demos for those interested in the creative process.

With such a strong emphasis on homes and interiors we are looking forward to welcoming not only collectors and enthusiasts, who know to expect vibrant, high quality work, but also people looking to buy something different for themselves or their friends and family this Christmas.

Farnham Maltings is almost in the centre of town and within easy walking distance of the shopping area. Click here for detailed information how to get to there.
