Leach100 to be part of Celebrating Ceramics 2020
For 2020, Celebrating Ceramics could not be a more apt title as we are delighted to announce that the Leach Pottery will be sharing their Centenary celebrations with us at Waterperry Gardens. Marking 100 years since Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada set up the pottery in St Ives, the Leach Pottery team will be hosting a range of activities at our event.
Leach 100 will not only pay homage to the influential legacy of the Leach Pottery but intends to continue its tradition of innovation and creativity to inspire new makers to shape a vibrant and contemporary studio pottery field for current and future generations. These celebrations, supported by Arts Council England, occur concurrently with the Japanese Season of Culture 2019-2020.
We are privileged to have been selected to host this unique and important celebration.
