As part of our art on the waterways programme, we are proud to support the British Ceramics Biennial at the Burslem weekend.
Since our launch as a charitable trust in 2012, we’ve been involved in a number of innovative projects linking art and the canals. This weekend sees Burslem, Mother Town of the Potteries, step back in time with 2 days of exhibitions, demonstrations, hands on workshops, talks, tours and trails.
Members of the public are invited to come along to a Pits and Pots Family workshop, which will involve creating a giant sculpture at the historic Middleport Pottery site.
The canals of this area were built to serve the Potteries - once bustling towns of industry. So expect narrowboats to make an appearance, both on the day and in the stories being gathered about the history of Stoke on Trent.
For more information about this event please see the British Ceramics Biennial website.
