Museum Pottery Residency
this residency in the Museum's temporary exhibition
space I set up a working environment surrounded by
object selected from the museum's reserve collection.
The aim was to enable visitors to develop an understanding
of, and to enjoy pottery through observation and participation.
the residency I concentrated on hand built pottery.
The central working space was surrounded by examples
of pottery and related objects from different periods
and cultures. This served both as inspiration and
stimulus for the public during workshop sessions and
reinforced the traditions of pot making over the centuries.
time lectures on pottery were organised by the museums
education officer in the lecture theatre during the
period of the residency.
