Between February and April 2016, I was an AHRC Cultural Engagement Fellow based at the National Glass Centre, University of Sunderland. Capitalising upon my doctoral research, this project involved devising and delivering a ceramics workshop programme in collaboration with the National Glass Centre and Forward Assist, a charity supporting military veterans in the North East. The project explored what role ceramic practice might play in commemoration and wellbeing and I supported the veteran participants to make their own ceramic work.
