Clay Pit

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganization of a workshop, panel, session, tutorial or event


An interactive workshop space, within China Halls, where community and education groups, BCB visitors and visiting artists can explore clay.

Via a series of large clay pits, copious amounts of ceramic material, oversize clay tools, and creative props, The Clay Pit will encourage communal hands-on play, exploration and construction.

The designers of The Clay Pit are passionate about clay’s ability to stimulate learning, create unique tactile experiences and fire the visual senses and brain matter.

The Clay Pit is supported by the Ceramics and its Dimensions project, which project brings museums, universities and research institutes together to provide a view of ceramics past, present and future.
