Ceramics Markets 2021/ Out of the Ashes
4/5 Dec Turning Earth Leyton 12-6pm
18/19 Dec Turning Earth Haringey Launch 12-6pm
After a long wait, the Turning Earth Ceramics Markets are returning this year, as we get together to celebrate the creativity that comes from crisis and reflect on the changes to our lives and making practices that the disruption of the pandemic brought with it.
The pandemic has impacted our making practices in many ways: while some have had more time to reflect and to make, others have been thrown into childcare and had little time for themselves at all. Wheel throwers have tried handbuilding techniques when their studios were shuttered, while some other makers have turned to the kitchen cupboards to find tools to experiment with when they couldn't leave their homes.
And many, many ceramics lovers have been unable to see work in person - to examine or touch it, let alone meet the maker, as shopping moved online.
So, with a great hurrah, we are happy to announce that we will be holding two in-person, real-life markets this year, where our makers will be selling work made during and since the lockdowns.
The first market in Turning Earth Leyton will be held on the weekend of 4/5 December, and the second in our new site in Haringey on the weekend of 18/19 December.
As always with our markets there'll also be live music and street food and mulled wine to buy. Come and make a day of it.
