1001 Pots: much more than an exhibition.

It is an immersion in the universe of ceramics. A multisensory experience. Every day, 

several ceramists are present on the site to share their knowledge and their artistic universe. In addition to visiting one of the largest open-air ceramic markets in Quebec, you can attend   demonstrations, workshops and musical or performing arts performances throughout summer.
