Up-cycling Old China in Bedford

As part of our Remake Remodel strand children in Bedford worked with artist Carole Miles on an up-cycling project inspired by a Circus dinner service designed by Dame Laura Knight for Art Deco ceramics designer Clarice Cliff. The children really enjoyed taking plain, tired crockery and injecting new life into it with their designs and ceramic pens.

Navigational Tools: Ways of Walking Differently Event

“Three artists walked north, and became Old Law Beacons.”

Back to Books would love you to join artists Jo Dacombe, Kate Dyer and Carole Miles for an informal gathering to consider ways we walk in the world and how to walk like an artist.

Inspired by the artists’ recent adventure exploring Northumberland, the evening is an opportunity for artists, walkers and life’s navigators to discuss ideas about -

the experience of a walk,
       interventions and sense of place,
              connecting and navigating,
                     the tangible and the virtual,
                            and to ask Why do we walk? 
                                and How can we walk differently?

The evening will include refreshments and our home baked nibbles; bring food to share! 

Free, but please book a ticket here so we know how many guests to expect. 

7-9pm, Thursday 5th December, 
Cranford St Andrew Village Hall , 
Grafton Road, Cranford Kettering NN14 4JE

Event commissioned by Back to Books and funded by Awards For All as part of our current project "Marking Our Tracks"
