Energised! is how we felt after a visit to the Artists @ 318 Ceramics exhibition yesterday at Leith Hill Place. This atmospheric house, with panoramic views, has a rich and interesting past. It was the childhood home of pianist and composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, home to the Wedgewood family and frequented by Charles Darwin.
The ‘Clay Stories’ exhibition is on until 2nd September and a visit is highly recommended for inspiration and a creative vibe. The ceramic exhibition is very much at home in this house, the works are cleverly displayed…..and there is an unexpected treat in the basement!
We also took the opportunity to take part in making a Wedgewood themed bowl, which will become part of a mass participation installation at the house from mid August. The workshops were extremely popular (another one next Saturday, 4th August), so the results should be sensational. Thanks for WSP’s Rachel Whitehead and Annie Hardy for your help!
Well done everyone involved, a fabulous success.
