Potters market under a canopy of trees

The first Rondebosch Potters Market for 2017 will be taking place on Saturday, March 18, at Rondebosch Park. This market has been running for more than 40 years. It features ceramics from functional to sculpture and “everything in between, at very reasonable prices”.

If you are looking for that unique present or just want to see what is new in the ceramic industry, this could be the event for you. For those working up an appetite while perusing there will be numerous foods stalls on offer. This market takes place twice a year and the next one after the March market is on November 18. The event is dog friendly, so take along your pooch and have some fun.

Rondebosch Park offers a canopy of trees to take shade under, if the early autumn sun comes out in force, while enjoying the wide range of ceramics that potters, ceramic artists, sculptors and entrepreneurs are producing. Ceramics Southern Africa members will come out of their studios to sell their ceramics and share their knowledge of the material that is clay.

The Potters Market is run by the Ceramics Southern Africa Western Cape Region team. Ceramics Southern Africa was founded in 1972 and is the official representative body of potters in Southern Africa. The objective of the association is to promote ceramics in Southern Africa.

* The market will open at 8am and run until 2pm so if you want your pick of the good stuff, better get there early.

Entrance is free.
