Handmade in Britain

What a partnership!  I'm tuning into this.  The V&A and BBC Four present Handmade in Britain, an ambitious year-long season exploring the history of British decorative arts. 

The season begins with a three-part series on British ceramics. From the history of domestic pottery to the heart of Britain’s ceramic empire in Stoke-on-Trent to the studio potters of the 20th and 21st centuries, Ceramics: A Fragile History reveals why, throughout the nation’s history, makers have created objects that are beautiful as well as functional.

The V&A will run films alongside the programme, which will draw heavily on their collection and expertise.

Already I want to get a lump of clay to squidge and shape - though usually I do more squidging than anything when I work with clay!


  1. Of course, even more thrilling for you - it would be lovely to have you there while watching, so you can explain things or comment knowledgably! Hope you enjoy it.
