Six large ceramic sculptural pieces celebrating the natural and cultural heritage of Lindisfarne and the coast, to be created by Graham Taylor. We need your help at six practical pottery workshops to gather source material and create elements to incorporate into the artwork.
As part of our Fragments project, we're delighted to be working with Graham Taylor, ceramicist and ancient pottery technology specialist from Rothbury, on a series of ceramic pieces that will capture the essence of the Peregrini Lindisfarne landscape.
The project involves the development and creation of six pieces to celebrate the unique and diverse landscapes (past and present) of Holy Island and the coastline between Cocklawburn and Budle Bay. Each vessel will incorporate aspects of the landscape: its history, geology, fauna and flora, and people.
As well as being beautiful objects, the series is intended to act as inspiration about the landscape, and provide a spark for learning about it in different ways. A lasting legacy for our Creative Arts and Landscape Appreciation project, once complete, the vessels will form part of Berwick Museum and Art Gallery's permanent collection and will be on display in 2018.
Help create these pieces! Fragments pottery workshops
In six practical pottery workshops over the next few weeks, come get creative and have fun learning simple clay techniques. With Graham's tuition, we'll be working up elements that will be incorporated into the final pieces and creating a community piece for display alongside them.
At these workshops, Graham would love to hear why Holy Island and the coast is so special to you. Please bring along any objects, images or stories that you feel have an affinity or a connection with the landscape.
The workshops are free, and open to all. No previous experience is necessary.
