Pop-up Pottery & Kiln firing workshop

Clay workshop for families. Part of Martin Brockman’s Sussex Claylands Tour 2018-19

September 29th, 10.00 – 17.00 at the Linklater Pavilion, Railway Land, Lewes BN7 2FG (map)

FREE EVENT (donations welcome)

Respond to the landscape, plants and animals of the Railway Land by drawing with clay pigments and making miniatures. Fire your work in a popup kiln. Follow the process of firing ceramics in the wheelbarrow touring kiln.

Martin Brockman is touring Sussex woods, downs and towns, making and firing a single pot at each stopping place. The pot is formed from clay dug from that location or nearby and fired in a wheelbarrow clamp kiln.

The series of vessels made during the tour will reference the pots made over centuries by local makers to celebrate births, deaths, weddings and harvests.

The completed series will tell a story of Sussex ceramic geography and history.

Pop-up Pottery & Kiln firing workshop is part of Make Lewes Festival 2018
