Join us at the Harris for a unique chance to meet winner of the BBC’s Great Pottery Throw Down, Matthew Wilcock.
Preston-born Matthew will chat with Dr Chris Mortimer from the Northern Potters Association and demonstrate some of his pottery techniques. Discover how Matthew first got into ceramics, how he got involved in the Great Pottery Throw Down – and what direction his career is taking now. Best of all, see him in action creating pots in the gallery and talking about the practical challenges of his work.
Matthew’s interest in ceramics came from his parents, especially his father, Geoff, who worked as a ceramics teacher and technician at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston for over 40 years. Matthew also studied at UCLan and now works at Giggleswick School in Yorkshire.
This event is part of the Preston Arts Festival 2016. For more details of this city-wide programme of cultural events see http://www.prestonarts.com/.
