Winter Markets 2021

December 2, 2021

After a long wait, the Turning Earth Ceramics Markets are returning this year, as we get together to celebrate the creativity that comes from crisis and reflect on the changes to our lives and making practices that the disruption of the pandemic brought with it.

Turning Earth Leyton

Turning Earth Leyton's much-loved Winter Market will be held on Saturday 4th and 5th December 2021. More than 70 ceramicists will sell their work direct from the studio, and there will be wheel-throwing and handbuilding demos throughout the weekend - with the option for visitors to have a go too.

A charity stall selling donated work will again raise money for charity Help Refugees. There’ll also be delicious street food, mulled wine and mince pies, as well as live music.

Come and make a day of it!

Turning Earth Haringey

On 18/19 December we will hold the inaugural Christmas Ceramics Market at the new Turning Earth Haringey.

More than 70 ceramicists will sell their work direct from the studio, and there will be wheel-throwing and handbuilding demos throughout the weekend - with the option for visitors to have a go too.
A stall selling donated work will raise money for local charities. There’ll also be delicious street food, mulled wine and mince pies, as well as live music.

The market will explore the theme of creativity within times of crisis, while our makers reflect on the changes to our lives and making practices that the disruption of the pandemic brought with it.

The pandemic has impacted our making practices in many ways: while some have had more time to reflect and to make, others have been thrown into childcare and had little time for themselves at all. Wheel throwers have tried handbuilding techniques when their studios were shuttered, while some other makers have turned to the kitchen cupboards to find tools to experiment with when they couldn't leave their homes.

And many, many ceramics lovers have been unable to see work in person - to examine or touch it, let alone meet the maker, as shopping moved online.

Perhaps one of the greatest gifts of the pandemic has been showing us all what we truly love, by giving us the opportunity to long for it.

We are beyond excited to finally welcome you back through our doors.
