The Community Crockery: Craft for Creative Change
Katie has been working on a set of crockery that will be available to lend from Deveron Projects for local events and gatherings. The set consists of 100 plates and 100 mugs, all of which have been crafted and designed with the help of local community groups.
Recently many shops, amenities and services have closed in Huntly. A disheartening reality that affects many towns and cities today. We need to ask, how do we maintain our diverse community within the age of globalisation? What are the possibilities for small scale regeneration, based on skills and goods exchange?
During her residency, Katie hosted a series of informal Pop-In Pottery Workshops at No.11 Gordon Street. These sessions welcomed all ages and abilities to learn the process of clay and to help make The Community Crockery.
Join us on Sat 9 June for tea, cake and conversation and to celebrate The Community Crockery project in collaboration with the Huntly Rotary Club.
