When a kiln appeared behind the glass doors of Clay Collective’s studio, the excitement amongst the community was palpable.
Running to co-operative principles, Clay Collective is a community of like-minded makers and sculptors working with clay. With skill sharing and collaboration at its heart, the 12 members pool their expertise across an expanse of creative fields, from Illustration to Set Design, Photography, Design Writing and Arts in Health.
Offering a collective space for members to learn, explore and exchange knowledge, the studio also doubles as a hub for developing a varied and inclusive public programme.
The roster of projects includes exhibitions, workshops, talks, pop-up shops, demos and a regular residency programme, encouraging collaboration and conversation.
