Fantastic for Families has granted Clay Pit and the British Ceramics Biennial the Best Family Event Award 2018. The workshop was first organised during the British Ceramics Biennial (BCB) 2017 where it attracted more than 4000 visitors. The aim of the workshop is to play and learn with clay, but also to look at the material’s qualities and how they are used and experienced.
The workshop is part of the Ceramics and its Dimensions education and audience development program (Module 7) and has been carried out by BCB community and engagement programme manager Dena Bagi and Ceramics and its Dimensions: Shaping the Future coordinator Priska Falin. Besides them, during BCB the workshop was hosted by the following artists: Alice Thatcher, Joanne Ayre, Katie Leonard, Tasmin Williams, Joe Hartley, Helen Felcey and Barry Taylor.
