Generation Project – Heritage Pots
Join the Generation project and access free weekly sessions to explore local ceramics heritage.
What is this about?
These workshops are all about exploring the heritage of the Spode Pottery site and the wider ceramic heritage of Stoke-on-Trent. The Generation project will give you exclusive access to heritage sites across Stoke-on-Trent. You’ll explore their rich collections/histories and get hands-on finding out about traditional skills and ways of making. Develop ideas for outcomes, events and have the opportunity to exhibit at the British Ceramics Biennial 2021 in September.
In these workshops, learn how to make and design ‘heritage pots’ using techniques including:
- slip casting
- slip trailing
- transfer design and application
7-8pm, 27th April – Slip casting
7-8pm, 4th May – Slip casting, glazing and transfer design
7-8pm, 11th May – Slip trailing and transfer application
You don’t need to have attended the previous sessions to participate, but each session will be different so we would love to see you there for all the sessions.
BCB Studio, Spode Works, Elenora Street, ST4 1QD (meeting point, Spode Works Security office, on the right as you enter the red gates)
Who is this for?
Young people from Staffordshire aged 16-25 years old. The workshops are suitable for beginners and those with experience in ceramics.
The workshops are free and all material and equipment are provided, as well as refreshments.
You’ll be working alongside British Ceramic Biennial’s Project Coordinator and Artist, Emma Price.
