SATURDAY 13TH MARCH
The March 2021 event was held on Zoom for the first time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Open to members and non-members who purchased tickets through Eventbrite (£12.50 plus £1.09 booking fee), the Guild hosted internationally renowned artists Ester Beck, professor Vasu Reddy and Vidya Thirunarayan choreographer and potter, who engaged in a conversation and performance based on centring – the unscripted and unexpected.
Sasha Wardell also contributed to the programme – another internationally recognised ceramicist for her pioneering approach to bone china production and Thomas Bohle demonstrated double walled wheel thrown vessels. You can see a YouTube video of Thomas Bohle’s presentation here: https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DgYIqnpOk4Yk&data=04%7C01%7C%7Ca9888814271a4958a7dc08d93b1e77ae%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637605824299312758%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=ohbnBnwXWexVEAM0Dg3lBpDp%2Fv4NdHlo3r9E%2BU5OOng%3D&reserved=0
