The Leach Pottery will host a unique exhibition opening this November, as the world-famous pottery studio teams up with Scarlet Wines and Secret Orchard Cider for a night of fire-lit art, food and drink.
Guests at the evening launch of ‘Teachers’ Pots’ on 3rd November will be able to eat, drink and get creative in the inspiring surroundings of the historic studio, museum and gallery.
A pop-up pizza oven in the pottery’s soda kiln will provide both spectacle and sustenance, as pizzas are cooked at lightning speed by the high temperature wood-fired kiln.
A bar in the Clore Studio will dispense eclectic wines from around the world and a selection of award-winning cider from craft producer Secret Orchard – including Mulled Cider to stave off the winter chills.
As well as enjoying music, guests will also have the opportunity to decorate and fire their own raku pot, taking it away with them on the night.
Libby Buckley, Director of The Leach Pottery, said: “Feast & Flames will be a fun and memorable evening, and a fantastic way to launch our exhibition of work from the Education Team. We’re looking forward to a night of drama and excitement, with live firings and interactive elements, while guests feast on delicious food and drink.”
Jon Keast, Owner of Scarlet Wines, added: “The Leach is such a great venue for a creative pop-up event like this. We’ll be keeping guests satiated with heart-warming food and drink, on what promises to be an atmospheric winter evening just before Bonfire Night.”
Entry to the event is free, while food, drinks and participation in the raku firing will all be charged on the night.
The Leach Pottery Shop will also be open during the event, with a 10% discount on all sales.
