What's On

Piecing together Pottery

Meet + Make with FJ Hutchinson
6 February 2024

We’ve all broken teacups, family heirlooms or beloved treasures, but have you ever wondered how to fix them?

Join us to get a taste of ceramic restoration with F J Hutchinson and learn what goes into restoring ceramics.

Fiona will take you through one of her processes, explaining her methods and materials. There will also be an opportunity to put your new-found skills into action.

All materials and equipment will be provided. Please note, this session will involve handling sharp pottery and using solvents.

This workshop is part of Meet + Make, a series of public engagement events running alongside our contemporary exhibition Work Life: Life’s Work.
