Wed–Sun 11–4 or byappt t 01304 360411 t @Studio–Linden f Linden-Hall-Studio Ceramics are given a broad canvas this month (19 to 21 August) at what is headlined as the UK’s largest event of its kind, Art in Clay Hatfield Pottery & Ceramics Show. Celebrating its 22nd year, the successful formula continues, with the doors open to some (albeit carefully selected) 200 makers, both established artists and new talent, which gives the whole thing a creative freshness and buzz. The result is a rich mix of exhibits ranging from the domestic to the sculptural, tiny to monumental, traditional to cutting edge. And the location is also something to highlight – Hatfield House in Hertfordshire with its delightful Jacobean gardens where the marquees are set up, all makes for a very tempting day out for serious ceramics collectors and non- specialists alike.
