Féile Clai project
Féile Clai is an initiative born and fashioned as a joint venture by the International Ceramics Festival and Ceramics Ireland. The name Féile Clai means Festival of Clay and combines a Gaelic and a Welsh word to symbolise the essence of this cross cultural project which is now in its third year. Funded by the European Commission and the European Regional Development Fund under the Interreg IIIA community initiative it brings together ceramicists from the east of Ireland and West Wales in an exciting new partnership. Féile Clai facilitates events, encourages the exchange of ideas and information, fosters and nurtures the growth of young talent and promotes exhibitions that celebrate the talent, both rising and recognized, that flourishes on both sides of the Irish Sea.
