LightNight ‘Home’ 2020

LightNight ‘Home’ 2020
Friday 15th May 2020

Local maker Chris Turrell Watts, our ‘In the Window’ maker for May will be here from 6pm-7pm, to talk about his work and demonstrate how he makes his fantastical ‘Wonderbeasts’.

‘Wonderbeasts’ are a series of ceramic pieces that are drawn from medieval illustration, folklore and Outsider art. He’s interested in the space between fact and legend, exploring notions of the wild magic of nature and our own world of order and familiarity. Storytelling is a key theme to these pieces, suggesting distinctive characters and individual narratives. Created from a mix of hand building and press moulding and using layers of coloured slips and oxides, these objects feel alive and purposeful.

Chris will also be running a workshop at bdc, to make your own Wonderbeast on Sunday June 7th from 11am- 4pm. Tickets for the workshop are £65 for friends of bdc, or £70 full price, anyone who attends our free LightNight event can get the reduced price of £65. Places are limited to 12 for the workshop, so please call 0151 7094014 to book, or email us on crafts@bluecoatdisplaycentre.com
