Marsden Woo Gallery artist Alison Britton is presenting the Emmanuel Cooper Memorial Lecture 2015 at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. Use and Beauty: things, thinking and work will take place on Thursday 5 March at 17.30.
The famous pairing of 'use and beauty' is Bernard Leach's and the largest Leach archive resides in Farnham at the Crafts Study Centre. Britton's lecture will explore a thread through her own work over the past few years that weaves different connection to use and beauty in the way her thinking has evolved through the mixed practice of making pots, writing and curating. It celebrates the instability of craft in the spectrum of art and design.
