CIF Round Two – Teesdale in Clay, Teesdale Community Resources
A project enabling local people to learn more about Teesdale’s heritage by using ceramics as the main medium for communication of stories and tales and using traditional techniques to produce ceramic items both ornamental and practical. Sessions were run for families, older people, young people and children and were based at TCR Hub in Barnard Castle. Lindsey Starborn and Teesdale Pottery Group led the sessions using resources already based at the Hub. The sessions were based in the workshop, with some work done outdoors including the build of a traditional clay firing pit. The project will conclude with an exhibition of work at TCR Hub on 13th December 2019.
