Potter Market

Potter Market in Weimar

Potters from all over Thuringia gather on the market square to demonstrate their skills and sell their finished creations. Visitors watch as the clay is turned and shaped on the potter wheel and browse the stalls to see which pottery most appeals. Styles range from the traditional to the avant-garde but the quality of the craftsmanship is always high. The Potter Market has the feel of a local fair and lasts two days. It also has a programme of events including a traditional potters guild ceremony.
