FESTIVAL OF TABLEWARE
6–9 AUGUST 2021
About the festival
It is with heavy hearts that the Ceramics Association of New Zealand has decided to postpone Feast (Together) – The George Festival of Tableware until 2021. The near future remains uncertain, and we want to ensure the safety and security of our festival attendees, workshop tutors and speakers.
The festival will now be held from 6–9th August 2021, in the Canterbury-West Coast region at the beautifully restored historic Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora.
Generously sponsored by The George, and partnering with the Canterbury Museum, the Teece Museum and the Christchurch Art Gallery.
The festival has been designed to celebrate all thing 'tableware', with New Zealand makers, producers, users and the public coming together for a feast of body, mind, and spirit. FEAST, MAKE and SEE with a range of events and activities open to the public.
