Forgotten Potteries Workshops

We have worked with artist Adele Howitt to deliver pottery workshops in preparation for the exhibition at the Cooper Gallery in 2016.

“We all love pottery, clay is in our blood round here.”

Working with communities in the locations that the potteries once existed was a key part of Adele Howitt’s process of creating a final piece for her exhibition at the Cooper Gallery next year.

Her work will not only reflect the history of places such as Mexborough, Swinton and Hoyland but also integrate the skills of their communities today.

Here are a few photographs from the sessions at Swinton Lock Activity Centre, the Montgomery Centre, Wath-upon-Dearne, and Hoyland Library.
