The situation caused by the Covid pandemic meant that the 2021 edition of the Fira Internacional de Ceràmica Argillà Argentona caused most of the activities to be concentrated in a single space, the Bernat de Riudemeia school. The success of last year’s edition, and the excellent assessment made by the attending public of this event, has led the organizers to repeat the experience for this edition, which will take place between July 1 and 3.
The Argillà Argentona International Ceramics Fair 2022 will take place in the aforementioned school and the workshops and educational activities will be held in the Plaza de la Església, very close to the Fira.
For this edition, 60 potters have been selected, mainly from Catalonia and the rest of the state, as well as representatives from France, Morocco, Italy, Germany, Slovenia, Poland and Ecuador. Some of the participants of this year’s edition repeat and the guest country is France. A dozen participants arrive from the neighboring country, who will be located in an exclusive space within the fairgrounds of the Bernat de Riudemeia school.
