Banwell Pottery involved in North Somerset Arts Week
Thursday 11 April 2013

Brandon Trust's Banwell Pottery will be showcasing and selling handmade ceramic items from their base at @Worle during North Somerset Arts Week from 3-12 May.

Visitors to the brand new purpose-built workshop, which is located next to Worle Community School, off New Bristol Road, will be able to see unique tiles being made by the potters and also have the chance to buy the finished items, which make ideal gifts.

The pottery, which is run by Brandon Trust who support people with learning disabilities, will be open to the public at various times each day from Friday, 3 May through to Sunday, 12 May, but will be closed on Saturday, 4 May. There is free parking and full wheelchair access.

The Arts Week has become a major event in the North Somerset calendar and the aim is to showcase local artists and make art accessible to a wider public audience during the 10 days. Over 300 artists in almost 100 venues are ready to open their doors.

Project coordinator Dianne Slingsby said: "It has always been a great event for us in the past and always attracts lots of visitors. We are working hard to have a really big display of as much work as possible."
