2 Major Events - 1 Admission - 1 Fabulous Venue

Two events for one admission - Celebrating Ceramics 2024 is also being held alongside the Desire Jewellery & Silversmithing Fair.

Waterperry Gardens, near Oxford, was the home of Art in Action for many years and we have been staging our Celebrating Ceramics event here since 2019.

Waterperry House and Gardens provides the perfect backdrop for the Desire Jewellery & Silversmithing Fair. Desire features a diverse selection of fabulous contemporary jewellers and silversmiths.

The event will be held in floored and carpeted temporary pavilions and staged alongside the Celebrating Ceramics event and visitors will be able to visit both events on just a single ticket.
