*** Ticket bookings go live on Thursday 23rd September at 8pm. Due to the popularity of the workshops we can only allow two bookings per person across the week. ***

Bring along your favourite ceramic mug, plate or object to give it a new lease of life! In this workshop, Bridget Harvey will explore creative ways to mend broken ceramics. The results may be unexpected, with the potential for items to be transformed into more sculptural than functional forms. After looking at your object, Bridget will guide you through the different materials and methods available to assemble them into re-imagined and re-purposed objects.

No experience or skill necessary, all welcome!

To take part in the session you will need:
- a broken ceramic object in need of repair

Bridget Harvey is an interdisciplinary artist, maker and educator working with found objects and materials such as fired ceramics, wood, and textiles. Her inventive and playful practice focuses on repair within multiple disciplines and as independent practice since 2013. Bridget is interested in how making and repairing helps us understand ourselves and what we do/own, aiming to generate new understanding and add meaning through craft. Bridget’s artist residency at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 2018-19 explored the relationship of repair to conservation through artefacts, a publication and an exhibition.

Important: our COVID-19 policy for Repair Week

We have adopted some temporary measures for our in-person events during Repair Week, to ensure the safety of our team and to help everyone attending to feel as comfortable as posible.

All event participants coming to the Institute of Making will need to show proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of the event. You can either show your test result on your NHS app, or show text message confirmation of a negative test result. Unfortunately we will not be able to give access to anyone without a negative test result.

At our in-person events, all participants are required to wear a face covering. If you are unable to wear a face covering, please book our online events instead. We are happy to help you find an online event or to work with you to work out a type of face covering that will enable you to attend the in-person event. Email with any questions.

COVID symptoms

If you experience any COVID-19 symptoms, including a temperature, please cancel your event booking through Eventbrite and stay at home. We know it can be disappointing to miss an event, but it is important to keep everyone safe.
