Folk Deco Clay Workshops

Client: Folkestone Triennial, SDC, Muff Architecture.

Folk Deco

working alongside the 2014 Folkestone Triennial Payers Park commission. Lead artists Matt Rowe and Lovisa Lindstrom   hosted a series of community workshops that engaged local residents with handmade decorative artefacts. Handmade objects were used as a focal point to stimulate an informal discussion surrounding the social and cultural value of crafted objects.  An exhibition curated by local residents consisted of new and existing decorative works produced and collected during the workshops. The resulting archive presented a snapshot of material trends and attempt to highlight a regional aesthetic.

The workshops culminated with a celibratary drink at the red cow pub to test drive the our ceramic vessels.
