Bound by Clay Film Premiere


We are pleased to announce that our Heritage Lottery Film Bound by Clay will be premiering on 12th June at the Film Theatre in Stoke. 

Produced by Stoke-on-Trent based Inspired film, it includes engaging accounts from women who currently work or have worked in the industry. Hear the women talk about their day-to-day experiences, the camaraderie and the skillful processes they developed, which have contributed to making ceramics manufacturing a world-renowned industry.

Documentaries about the pottery industry rarely focus on the role of women, so this is a unique opportunity to see an important aspect of Stoke-on-Trent's infamous industrial and cultural heritage.

There are 2 performances at 6.15pm and 7.45pm. Tickets are £3 and available via Eventbrite. We have free concessionary tickets for those on a low wage and for charities, please contact our email if you are interested,, likewise if you have difficulty using Eventbrite.

IWD Thank You


On 8th March our IWD celebration Bound by Clay at Spode in Stoke was sellout. Out guest speaker was Kate Malone the celebrated artisan potter who has helped to put Stoke-on-Trent back on the map with the Great Pottery Throw Down. She shared the stage with Laura Cohen CEO of the British Ceramics Confederation, Kevin Brownsword Professor of Ceramics at Staffordshire University and Kevin Millward Course Director at Clay College. Additionally, we showcased local artisan potters.

We want to thank all our speakers, Charlotte Foster from Radio Stoke our host for the evening, our excellent guests, volunteer helpers, Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Heritage Lottery Fund, Moorcroft, Edwards and Lockett, Spodeworks and Inspired Film
