Dillsboro festival celebrates pottery

Written by 

art potteryfestThe Western North Carolina Pottery Festival will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, in downtown Dillsboro.

 

More than 40 highly skilled ceramic artists will throw pots and demonstrate their techniques from booths located along Front Street. Now in its ninth year, the festival remains true to its original mission of allowing the public to interact with potters and learn more about their craft.

All festival attendees receive a ticket for a daylong raffle, while a silent auction benefits a local charity that provides meals to needy families. The 5th annual WNC Clay Olympics competition runs from 1 to 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, in downtown Dillsboro. 

Admission is $3 per person, with children under 12 free.

828.631.5100, www.wncpotteryfestival.com or 800.962.1911.
