Phil Root spent nearly a year in our Live/Work studio, focusing on making a new series of paintings. During his time at Wysing he met Giles Round, who was in-residence as part of the Department of Wrong Answers. The two later formed The Grantchester Pottery.
Phil also met Norwich based artist Rob Filby, who was also part of the Department of Overlooked Histories residency, and together developed new work for the two person exhibition Phil Filby and Rob Root.
Phil Root played in the first two iterations of our art and music festival, the second time under the collaboration 666 6, with E Park, who he met during the Escalator Retreat Homework .
666 6 contributed to an evening of live events to launch our group exhibition The Starry Rubric Set.
The Grantchester Pottery continue to make work from our ceramics studio and had their first gallery exhibition at Wysing in 2011, in the group exhibition Slipped.
