BCB have created this new digital resource in response to the current health crisis and to enable people to experiment and engage with clay at home. Over the coming weeks we will be releasing content to use at home, including hands-on activities for children and young people, podcast interviews with artists and online networking events. There’s even a recipe for a clay alternative for those who don’t have access to the material in their homes.

More information can be found on the #ClayAtHome website page and events calendar as well as across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

"‘The experience of ceramics is vital for the people of Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding area, and our year-round work sees us working with the city’s schools, health providers and other community groups – and course with artists on a local, national and international level. The current health crisis means we’ve had to re-think how we do this and come up with creative ways of continuing our work in the city and beyond. We’re looking forward to developing and sharing this creative programme over the coming weeks.’”

Barney Hare Duke, Artistic Director of the British Ceramics Biennial
