Hundreds of people visited Oxcombe Pottery to see and purchase work by more than 40 artists and potters last weekend.

Oxcombe is a traditional working farm, but over the past decade, Susanna has transformed the redundant Victorian barns into a thriving creative space, with classes on offer teaching art and ceramics, and some people have now been attending for more than five years.

The results of these classes were on display during the exhibition weekend, with makers selling many of their pieces and taking commissions for more.

Clare Briers, Oxcombe Art and Ceramics Coordinator added: “We have received such amazing feedback from the artists and guests.
