Bornholm Visit and Talks

This September I will be traveling to the island of Bornholm in Denmark with a group of Ceramicists and Makers as part of the annual Make Lewes Festival. For this exciting trip we will be visiting the European Ceramic Context 2018 biennial, and the Grønbechs Gaard – Bornholm’s Center for Arts and Crafts, as well as digging clay and taking part in workshops with Bornholm ceramicist Anne Mette Hjortshoj.

While on the visit I will be giving a talk about my work at Grønbechs Gaard discussing how my work is inspired by the Sussex landscape and about my experience of using local clay and found materials.
You can follow us on our adventures on Instagram.

When we return back to Lewes, I will also be giving a talk about the trip as part of the Make Lewes Festival’s ‘Makers Talks Evening
Friday 28th September 19.30 – 21.15 at Studio Hardie 1, Lewes, BN7 2PE

About the Make Lewes Festival:
Making Lewes is a community organization that promotes the exchange of knowledge in the fields of making, architecture, design and sustainability. It runs the annual Make Lewes Festival of craft, design and architecture that takes place each autumn in Lewes in Southern England, a town of 15,000 people, which like Bornholm, has a strong craft and making culture.
