About Voices II: Ceramics in Conversation
Exploring contemporary ceramics and finding words to express thoughts and opinions about it has been the aim of the BCB and WEA partnership course, Ceramics in Conversation. Over the period of 6 weeks, students on the online WEA course, have been exploring the work of the 10 artists selected for BCB AWARD 2021. Through group discussions, independent research, presentations exploring images and films about each artist’s work, the group have written personal responses/interpretations to the work. Drawing on prompts such as: What memories, questions and thoughts does it trigger? How is it made? What ideas do you think the artist is trying to express? How do you think it was made? What themes can you identify in the work?
You will find these responses alongside each AWARD artwork.
Share your own responses to BCB 2021 by tagging #BCBCeramicsInConversation on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
Please ask for easy read format of these texts at the information desk at The Goods Yard.
Voices II: Ceramics in Conversation is run in partnership with WEA (Workers Educational Association).
