Fodor's Review

One of the most interesting events in Val David is this ceramic exhibition, held from July through mid-August. On view is the Japanese-style pottery of 1001 Pots' founder, Kinya Ishikawa—as well as pieces by up to 100 other ceramists. Ishikawa's studio also displays work by his wife, Marie-Andrée Benoît, who makes fish-shaped bowls with a texture derived from pressing canvas on the clay. There are workshops for adults and children throughout the exhibition and there

is always at least one artisan on site. While you're there, take the time to enjoy tea in one of the three beautiful gardens and learn the art of the Japanese tea ceremony.
