BCB have worked within the recovery community in Stoke-on-Trent over three-years. The Typecast project aims to enable individuals in recovery to creatively plan, communicate and reflect on their recovery journey using clay. Typecast also works towards getting participants back into the community, to share, inspire and teach other people in recovery their new creative skills. Identity, heritage and relationships will be key themes in the project, as artists Joe Hartley, Helen Felcey and Barry Taylor lead the group through the creative processes.
