Hands On - BCB 2015

During the British Ceramics Biennial 2015, a whopping 2,500 took part in activity, all led by ceramic artists. We hosted schools sessions, family friendly workshops and adult classes, as well as engaging professionals in training and development.

The Hub, a new interactive area of the festival, was where visitors played, drew, threw, explored, digitally created and memorialized with clay. We learned traditional skills and processes, tested our perceptions of clay and generally had fun by getting some clay under our fingernails.  

Here's what a few of our participants said:
"Today I felt happy. The clay feels, so oooooooooo’ 
"What an amazing day. Memorable and inspirational, thank you’ 
"Lovely to come back to where I met my wife, with my wife. We worked with clay together again!’ 
"We don’t get to do stuff like this in Stoke! More please!'
