Come Fill Me Up Full: Ceramic Harvest Vessel Workshop

Social [Practice]

Spend the day ceramicist Mandy Biscoe and illustrator Molly Saunders exploring the rich local traditions of making decorated harvest jugs and drinking vessels.

Working with red earthenware clay, Mandy will guide you through the process of making your vessel which will be decorated with slip and then worked into with sgraffito illustrations and text which Molly will help you develop.

The finished pieces will be taken away and fired and given a honey glaze by Mandy and then returned to Exeter Phoenix for you to collect and use to toast the harvest. All materials + firing included.

Social [practice] / Time To Reap What You Sow

A programme of events open to all that offers an alternative platform for artists and creative producers to meet and make together in a series of practical projects hosted by creative practitioners.

This Autumn, Social [practice] is all about celebrating the Harvest. Linking up with our Film Programme, we will be inviting you to come together to forage, feast and explore the darker side of folk rituals and try craft traditions with a twist.
