Community Maker

The Community Maker project has been working with the Portland Street residents over the past 2-years to plan a future for their changing community with clay. Food and feasting was a focus as the group made objects, had communal feasts and  hosted celebrations together. 

The Portland Street community is changing, as new residents move into a long-standing community through a £1 home shceme, initiated by Stoke on Tret City Council. Led by £1 home buyer and artist, Anna Francis, the group are working towards making their own version of the popular Homemaker tableware of the 1950s. Over the next two years, BCB will continue to work with the group to realise this. 

If you are resident of the area, and want to get involved, you can email Anna Francis at or call 01782 294634.
