Eastbourne Studio Pottery has invited over 60 local groups to take part in 35 free, artist-led workshops between November 2023 and May 2024. Each workshop welcomes six people from two different community, arts, health, environment or education-focused groups, plus independent businesses in the local area to create together as a catalyst for conversation and the cross-fertilisation of ideas.

The project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and East Sussex Arts Partnership. 


In each workshop we are making plates using a wide variety of techniques, not all restricted to traditional ceramics processes. We're working with 19 visiting artists, supported by the tutors from Eastbourne Studio Pottery, to introduce new ways of working with clay.

Over 400 plates made during the project will be exhibited at Towner Eastbourne on the 6 & 7 July 2024.  All the workshop participants are invited to a special tea party at Towner where everyone will be able to take their plate home or do a swap with another maker!

This project celebrates creativity, community, and making connections. We are delighted to be working with Eastbourne Alive to celebrate the Turner Prize 2023 and offer the people of Eastbourne a chance to explore working with clay.
