About this event

Hone your writing skills

Writing communicates your brand by telling people more about your story and journey into craft and your processes and inspirations. It forms the backbone for your website, newsletters and social media posts and is also important for applying for funding, residencies and writing press releases. In this talk we will look at how to write well - avoiding cliché and jargon and using plain writing that is clear, concise, and well-organised.

About our speakers

Tan-dem describes the collaborative working practice of Kimberley Chandler and Stephen Knott. Working alongside one another and in dialogue, the partnership aims to broaden our understanding of craft and materiality, through writing, teaching, and talking. To date, Tan-dem has presented an alternative history of British ceramics comprised of archival fragments (Centre of Ceramic Art, York, 2018); taken up residence in Camberwell College of Arts for their exhibition, On The Way To Language (2018); and contributed an essay to ceramicist Neil Brownsword’s publication, Topographies of the Obsolete: Phase Two Rhizomatic Trajectories (2020).
