Durham County Pottery Tour in its 4th year

There are so many quality arts events, shows, openings in Durham that it’s hard to make time for one more. But The Durham County Pottery Tour is well worth your time. During the entire weekend of November 4, 10AM-5PM and November 5, 12-5PM, 2017, the studios of 21 professional Durham County potters and 2 local teaching facilities will be open to the public for touring. Five of these potters are new to the tour this year.

The tour has been extremely successful for the past 3 years and this year promises to be even better. If you have ever wanted to see where potters create their beautiful pottery and have the opportunity to ask questions about the process this is a wonderful event for you.

From our web site (Durhamcountypotterytour.com) you can download a map, pick out your route and visit as many potteries as you can. Street signs featuring our yellow logo will guide you to all locations. Brochures with the maps will be available in many venues around Durham or preview a piece of each potter’s work at Claymakers, 701 Foster St., Durham,, Oct. 28- Nov. 5. Of course all the potters will have their pieces for sale and you will have your choice of tableware, jewelry, garden pieces, sculpture and decorative items. Many of the potters will be having drawings for a free piece of their pottery.

Treat yourself to a fun weekend and join us for our 4th Annual Durham County Pottery Tour. More information, maps, the brochure and information about the potters can be found at Durhamcountypotterytour.com
