HANGKLIP\/KLEINMOND \u2013 Last week the Herald wrote about how the local community can become part of the Ceramic and Pottery fair planned for 21-24 September 2022. This week more about the artists, potters and ceramicists who will participate.\r\nDeon Brits, chairman of the Festival Committee\u00a0\u00a0says although it will be a niche festival for potters and ceramic artists, other artists are also invited to come forward with their ideas and work, as long as it has some or other connection to the potter\u2019s art.\r\nThe committee is working on an art route, promoting all the studios and potter\u2019s galleries from Kleinmond all the way to Rooi Els. \u201cOur aim is to establish this as a permanent attraction for tourism. We want visitors to come and stay for longer than a day to visit these artists,\u201d Deon says.\r\nThey are also planning exhibitions in the library, town hall and other venues for the duration of the festival. Potters from outside our area are invited to take part in these exhibitions as well.\r\nHarbour Road, where the internationally acclaimed potter, Corinne de Haas has her studio, will be a hive of happenings during the festival. Henriette Derby, by now well known for her antique and vintage market in The Shed, will also be part of these exhibitions, with a vintage market in The Shed.\r\n\r\n\u201cThen we are very excited to host a pottery workshop over the three days, presented by Ceramics SA - Western Cape.\u00a0\u00a0Here upcoming artists may find their niche,\u201d he adds.
