Hey Clay! by Crafts Council UK
For the last two years we have been collaborating with Get creative festival organised by Crafts Council UK taking part of Hey Clay! a national celebration of clay - giving everyone the chance to unleash their inner potter.
Each time we organised a ceramic workshop lead by artist Milan Tarascas providing an introduction to methods of animating clay with sound. Students were making Ocarinas the first year and maracas in the last edition.
LPOL and Rochester Square bring you a celebration of the mindfully handmade; specially crafted ceramic coffee cups from to 6 artists and perennial vegetable tanned leather goods by LPOL - available to view, try and buy at the LPOL Shop Unit 89, Coal Drops Yard.
Free coffee was served in the cups on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24.
Since 2017, Rochester Square has been collaborating with The Slade School of Fine Art, as a new partnership to support a group of undergraduate and graduate students from across all the Slade areas. The project has both practical and technical teaching and learning aims, with a focus on research development via public engagement opportunities.
The students taking part are provided with a space for developing their skills, research and professional practice experience (via the ceramics facilities, outdoor garden and grounds) and with the support of Rochester Square they can make their own artwork, organise public workshops, events and join its collaborative community.
