Isle of Wight holiday could include pottery exhibition

Tourists heading to the Isle of Wight have been encouraged to attend a 20th century pottery exhibition during their time on the island.

Ventnor Botanic Garden will be hosting the enduringly popular At the End of a Rainbow event on March 19th and 20th 2011.

"The aim of the exhibition is also to highlight the work of Isle of Wight potters, past and present and visitors to previous exhibitions have been astounded by the diversity of work produced," noted the organisers.

More than 30 potters from the Isle of Wight have contributed to the show, which will see hundreds of items go on display.

Chessell Porcelain, Bembridge Pottery, Yellowsands Pottery, Molly Attrill, Pauline Barnden and Alum Bay Pottery are just some of those to have taken part.

A number of books have been published for those wanting to learn more, including A Century of Ceramics - A Selection of 20th Century Potters and Potteries in the Isle of Wight by Andrew and Lisa Dowden.
