BCB Studio Opening

Venue details
BCB Studio, 118 & 124 Church St, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 1BU

Join us for the BCB Studio Opening and celebrate our brand-new, public-access ceramics studio in Stoke-on-Trent based in the historic Spode Works site.



About the BCB Studio

The new studio provides open-access ceramics facilities, a place to create with clay, meet others, develop ideas, explore processes and refine making skills. It is a welcoming and inclusive space. This opening event is an opportunity to speak to the BCB team about ways you can join in.

This is a huge step in our vision of making change through clay and will give us a new base of operations which will benefit our current programming and make way for new projects to come.
