Join Alison Britton, a pivotal figure who helped redefine the course of craft practice in the late 20th century, on this truly unique course.
The course will encourage the use of clay as a form-building material, and bring ideas about form and surface together. A visit to a museum collection of Etruscan ceramics will inspire new directions, and the basic techniques of slab building and coiling, relief decoration, and painting, trailing and pouring slips, will be explored.
Alison Britton was part of the radical group of RCA graduates in the early 1970’s whose work became known as ‘The New Ceramics’. Working from a London studio for four decades, Britton also writes and curates.
The V&A, in its ‘Content and Form’ exhibition, is currently celebrating the pots of Alison.
“One of the leading ceramic artists of her generation”
She teaches in the Ceramics and Glass department of the Royal College of Art, and since 1998 her work has been represented by Marsden Woo Gallery, London.
