As part of MakeMarket - A Creative Industries Takeover, I'll be creating a pop-up studio in Douglas Market Hall, to be a potter-in-residence from Wednesday 3rd 'til Sunday 7th August!
I'm planning to make a small collection of pots inspired by the historic building, it's features, patterns, colours, and the surrounding Quayside area.
I normally work very privately, so this is a rare opportunity (or social experiment...!) for me to interact with the public whilst working, and for visitors to see behind-the-scenes of how a potter works, as well as learn more about the design and production process.
Some more info about MakeMarket:
MakeMarket is a Creative Industries Takeover at Douglas Market Hall featuring a summer programme of hands-on workshops, demos, talks, pop-up studios and practical advice for established or aspiring creatives and anyone interested in the creative use of space.
MakeMarket focuses on creativity and how it stimulates the surrounding economy, and aims to create a collaborative and shared space where anyone can learn about and be involved in creative thinking, design and problem solving. A space where ideas come together and resources are shared. A thought factory where ideas flourish.
A place to make, discuss, market and exhibit skills.
See you in the Market Hall! Feel free to bring coffee/lunch/chocolate...!
