Women and Ceramics

Created July 22, 2018
We are a constituted voluntary organisation, made up of a diverse group of women who come together to celebrate and support women and their achievements.  
Over the last few years we have organised activities and events bringing communities together, mostly on or around International Women’s Day.

Our plans IWD 2019 are our most ambitious yet!  We plan to commission a short film celebrating older women and the important part they have played in the pottery industry, alongside young people and apprentices in the industry today.  Additionally we will showcase artisan potters and the tremendous opportunities available through Clay College.  We also hope to publish  a book containing 100 Anecdotes from the women.

This will all be showcased at our annual event on the 8th March 2019.  We are thrilled to announce our Guest Speaker will be Kate Malone, the celebrated artisan potter who has helped put Stoke-on- Trent back on the map through the successful TV show The Great Pottery Throw Down. 
 
Anyone who has been to our previous events will know that we work hard to make them a success and we truly hope for your help to make this one our best ever. 

Please donate what you can and expect an update on progress as our plans unfold.

Hi kind donor
I wanted to update you on our fund raising efforts and project development.
In addition to your kind donations we have also been successful in our bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant of £10k. This is fantastic news and means we can make a really good archive quality documentary film celebrating Women in Ceramics.
In addition to this we have also held a fundraising evening, enjoyed by all and adding another £200 to our overall objective.
Our event to be held on International Women's Day 8th March, promises to be an interesting and entertaining evening. We would like to invite you as our guest. Further details are on our website www.northstaffswomen.co.uk . Please email me asap if you would like to be included on our guest list.
Thanks again for your kind support.
