10am – 12pm
Join us for a Ceramic Plates Public Workshop by Rochester Square in April. Making ceramic plates can entail a series of creative process, such as collaging images and shapes on to the surface of the plates. Using a variety of coloured clay, this workshop is offering the opportunity to create shapes of your favourite food, by simply pressing and kneading them into the slab of clay. Resulting in a series of abstract or humorous plates. The plates can be picked up at STORE STORE Hackney after they have been glazed and fired.
Francesca Anfossi is a local artist her practice often involved collaboration and clay. Since her MA at the Slade School of Art Francesca has exhibited both nationally and internationally, participating in various creative collaborations. Her works has been exhibited as part of Studio Ceramic at Camden Arts Centre, and Goodbye Edelweiss at Concrete, Hayward Gallery London. In 2017 Francesca spent an extended period of time in Morocco as part of the AIR program Sefrou; practicing games, cooking and sharing her creative experiences with the local youth community. Francesca is also the director of Rochester Square, a space in London to establish artistic collaborations, where she recently completed the installation of temporary ceramic facilities for recreational use by artists and others.
