What a week !!! Over 60 volunteers over 5 days and completed 176 plates ! Thank you to everyone who came down and painted, chatted and painted a plate ! It's been amazing to work at Salford museum gallery all week and I have met some truly wonderful and talented people. Today I had a microbiologist, someone from my foundation course 20years ago, a father and son from Slovenia a young girl from Russia and 20 other fabulous people!
Here is s small selection of people who took part today. I will now finish the remaining 50 plates (maybe enlist some more family and friends) and then get them glazed and ready for firing at the fabulous Darwen Terracotta!
As you know once fired the plates will be ready to go into regular dinner service at the Museum cafe to mark the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele o the 31st July.
Thank you again to everyone who took part this week I couldn't of done it without you! (Speacial thanks to the cafe team who kept me stocked up with brews and biscuits!!) #1418now #inservice #ww1 #contemporaryart #ceramics #volunteers #salfordmuseumandartgallery #jamesbloomfield #intervention
