Ceramics & Career

When: 30th September, 3pm

Join us for an informal Fireside Chat, where we will explore the muddy topics of Climate Change. As ceramists, we work with materials sourced directly from the ground; we have to consider what the earth means to us. We will explore how climate change affects us and how we can make a difference as ceramic practitioners. 

We invite the audience to participate in the discussion alongside our special guests, environmental activists, and fellow artists.
