Because of the continued uncertainty of Covid19 all of this year’s shows will run with the same precautions in place as last year. When stepping under the canvas of the marquees visitors will be asked to please put on a face covering, observe social distancing where possible and be patient, kind and considerate to other visitors. Please remember their fears and anxieties may not mirror your own.

Keeping everyone safe, reassuring visitors and making sure everybody enjoys their day at Potfest Scotland 2021, is the utmost priority.

– Tickets are for sale online from May, for those that want to limit their social contact and cash transactions. We will of course still be offering cash entry at the gate, on the day.

– We’re asking visitors to be mindful of others personal space and adhere to 1m + social distancing.

– there are a reduced the number of exhibitors in each marquee and we have brought them out from the middle of the tents so that it’s possible to view their work without even entering the covered areas (the sides of the marquees will be open as usual).

– We have provided exhibitors with PPE and offered advice on best practice procedures.

– There will be several large hand sanitiser stations around the site.

– We ask visitors to please wear a mask when they are interacting with those outside of their social bubble.

– There will be extra toilet facilities this year so that units can be closed and cleaned on rotation.

– There will be a facility in place for Track & Trace.

Whilst we are in trying times, we want this years event to be as relaxed and enjoyable as usual. As someone said (several months ago) “we’re all in this together.” So as long as we adhere to the measures in place, appreciate and consider others concerns and anxieties we should be.

Patricia Shone – New Ceramics at Beaux Arts Bath

Come and see my new work at Beaux Arts Bath, some of it made during lockdown. I am delighted to be returning to this lovely gallery, especially after such a difficult few months. Fingers crossed all will be well for the opening on October 10th. The staff at Beaux Arts have been working hard to provide a safe and enjoyable space. Sadly though, there’ll be no opening viewing due to Covid19 safety restrictions.

I’m always very happy to have work in the South West of England. I spent a lot of my childhood near Dartmoor, and it had a deep effect on my love of wild places.
