Join the BCB at the Fringe Finale to make a ceramic flower and be part of a large-scale contemporary artwork at this years British Ceramics Biennial.
Traditional flower-maker, RIta, will be on hand to help you, talk more about the exhibition and chat about traditional ceramic skills still being used in the City.
By making a ceramic forget-me-not flower , you’ll become part of the 194000 exhibition at the festival. 194000 will be a Stoke-on-Trent WW1 100th anniversary memorial to the men of the North Staffordshire Regiment who went to war 1914-18. The large ceramic-flower based installation will take over a large area of the festival and encourage visitors to get involved.
The Voyagers Chorus are a community singing group. We met when we took part in the recent ReStoke performance at Tunstall Swimming Baths, called, “The Voyagers”.
After the performance we realised that we had so enjoyed singing together that we wanted to continue on a more informal level. We sing a wide variety of songs from a variety of cultures, blending simple chants with more intricate harmonies, to create a lovely flowing medley of music.
Join us for a workshop at London Rd Festival in Stoke, at Boothen Gardens on Saturday 13th June from 12 to 1pm.
You do not have to be a “good” singer – it’s just for fun. If you enjoy making sounds, like music and fancy trying something together, please join us.
