I went to the Launch of 'Firing Up' last night at Plymouth College of Art a Crafts Council initiative that is aiming to get young people back into making Ceramics.
There is going to be a pilot project running through the college with 9 schools in Devon, Cornwall and Plymouth, where the schools still have kilns these will be restored and Teachers given training to use them plus Artists residencys to inspire the young people to want to create in Clay. There is sponsorship through Pottery Crafts and the whole project is supprted by funding from The Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Esme Fairburn.
So an exciting project at this time when funding cuts are the usual story of the day
