Over the course of three weeks, products will be made in Wysing’s gallery, where they will also be stored and dried, creating a working space and exhibition that will illustrate some of the key ideas behind the project, drawing on the Arts and Crafts movement, the Korean Intangible National Asset register and many other design revolutions.
During Saturday 7 July, a Study Day with invited speakers and contributors will explore the themes of materiality, craft and making, and there will be an opportunity to visit the kiln whilst the firing is taking place.
Further artists involved in the UK-Korea exchange programme will contribute to the thinking and inspiration behind the project, and the aesthetic presentation of their research over the past year. This includes UK artists Aaron Angell and Mark Essen who recently completed a residency in Korea, as well as Jina Lee and the Fairland Collective.
You are invited to join us over the weekend of 16 and 17 June to help make some of these products, working with designers and potters and using clay, which will be fired in Wysing’s Anagama Kiln.
