A reminder that next Saturday, the 4th edition of the Gozo Ceramics Festival is being held in Xlendi. The festival is a unique occasion where ceramic artists, from the fine arts field as well as skilled craftsmen, demonstrate their talents and skills in public.
There will be a presentation of ceramic artefacts by local artists who will be working live in the main streets of Xlendi, demonstrating different techniques such as throwing, coiling, modelling, slab building and also firing. A hands-on experience for children will be led by experienced pottery teachers.
Apart from the ceramics, visitors to Xlendi will be kept entertained with live music and have the chance to taste the different foods on offer.
For the evening the Xlendi Administrative Committee will be illuminating the bay with the magical fjakkolata, when hundreds of candles will be lit around the bay and on private balconies.
Gozo Ceramics Festival is taking place on Saturday, the 6th of August from 7pm onwards. It is organised by the Gozo Culture Office and Munxar Local Council assisted by event organiser and ceramist Joan Haber.
