The Bradford Open for Art will take place during the first weekend in June, 2nd – 5th. It is the first year the event has been put on and I think it is very exciting for Bradford to get a Bradford-wide event that will showcase the city in a positive light. Bradford doesn’t always get the best press but there is a lot going on and the creative community is vibrant and interesting. I am really pleased to be opening my workshop as part of the event.
There’s going to be exhibitions, fairs and open studios taking place all over Bradford and from what I can see there will also be plenty of demonstrations going on in the open studios. There’ll be lots to see and do…
Lis Holt will be showing some of her work in my workshop, too.

Lis’s sculptural ceramics are inspired by the dynamics of the natural environment, particularly the seaside. She coils builds her pots, then fires them up to stoneware temperatures. It will be interesting to have the sculptural and the functional together in the workshop for the event.
If you are in the area, come and see us; you’ll be sure of a warm welcome. The address of the workshop is: 2 Westgate, Shipley, West Yorkshire, BD18 3QT.
