"La Fira del Fang"- The clay fair
This Saturday at San Marsal, Marratxi
edition of the unique clay fair is inaugurated. It is the only fair in the island that honors the art of pottery and ceramics
. This year, as it is the 30th
edition the fair has prepared special prizes and activities. The prize " Bienal Internacional de Cerámica de Marratxí (BICMA)" will also be awarded.
The fair has already been presented in Marratxi by the counselor, Tomeu Oliver and the ministers of culture and fair organizers. The fair was already recognized a few years ago with the national prize of ceramics for preserving and fomenting the art of clay and ceramics. Many famous ceramists visit Majorca only to enjoy this wonderful event.
The fair is not only for the artists but also for those visitors that want to get to know the culture of our island. Various activities will be taking place during that Saturday including courses, games for kids, and talks from professionals. A good way to learn if you are interested!
Apart from visiting the fair you can also make the most of the day and embark on a real pottery route. You can visit the clay museum, enter the traditional pottery stores and get to know the new proposals for the Bienal International of ceramics.
Even the poster for the event was chosen by means of a challenge in which many great Majorcan artists participated. This year the winner was Bartolomeu Garau
. Prizes are also given to the best stalls, the most unique ones and the ones that offer the best atmosphere. Don't miss it!
