Community of Practice

What are they about?

The Community of Practice workshops (formerly known as the BCB National Summer School) supports the development of creative practice. Workshops are delivered by established artists and leading researchers in contemporary ceramics practice. Offering opportunities for artists to test new ways of working and thinking. This is a platform for individuals eager to learn and to engage with exciting new areas of research and practice.


When does it take place?

Workshops in the past have taken place in the Summer and Autumn. For updates on our current events and opportunities please sign up for our newsletter.


Who can take part?

The Community of Practice workshops are for anyone wanting to take their making to the next level and get to know other artists. The workshops support artists in the development of ideas, concepts, skills and processes, which can inject fresh energy into your practice or provide you with a new project to explore. The workshops are often challenging but seek to support participants in developing at their own pace.


How long are the workshops?

Workshop programme is often delivered over five days. However, workshops can differ between taking place on regular days through a month or over a single week.
