300 years of Ceramics and collecting
Enjoy an exclusive private view of our Summer of Ceramics with a fascinating combination of expert talks and demonstrations of decorative painting techniques and state of the art 3D ceramics printing.
While the world is changing fast, families are still collecting and investing in art, perhaps nowhere more so than in crafts and ceramics. Join our experts for this exclusive morning of talks, discussions and demonstrations exploring the changing face of ceramics collecting in the 21st century.
