Craft in Focus, well known for staging the UK’s most popular Craft Fair at RHS Garden Wisley, is collaborating with Waterperry Gardens to bring you the largest and most exciting new ceramics festival to be launched in the UK in the last 10 years.

This fine selection of artistic talent will be set on the lawns that hosted the internationally acclaimed Art In Action for 40 years.
