Material Matters: Clay Symposium 9 October 2021

Since 2016, the Art School has participated in London Craft Week, an annual event that showcases exceptional craftsmanship through a journey-of-discovery programme around the city.

For the 2021 edition of London Craft Week, the Art School will be hosting the Material Matters: Clay symposium, 10am – 5pm on Saturday 9 October 2021.

The symposium will also celebrate the work of the Art School’s own Elaine Wilson (1959-2021). This year’s symposium is kindly supported by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.
