Over the last few years we have organised activities and events bringing communities together, mostly on or around International Women’s Day. Our plans IWD 2019 are our most ambitious yet! We plan to commission a film celebrating older women and the important part they have played in the pottery industry, alongside young people and apprentices in the industry today. Additionally we will showcase artisan potters and the tremendous
opportunities available through Clay College. We also hope to publish a book containing 100 Anecdotes from the women.
We are thrilled to announce our Guest Speaker will be Kate Malone, the celebrated artisan potter who has helped put Stoke-on- Trent back on the map through the successful TV show The Great Pottery Throw Down.
Anyone who has been to our previous events will know that we work hard to make them a success and we truly hope for your help to make this one our best ever.
We are fundraising for this event, if you would like to contribute to the event
Women in Ceramics Go Fund Me Page, you will also find a film which articulates our ambitions.
We are also having a social fundraising event on 2nd Februray at the London Road Bowling Club details can be found on our What's On Page.
