Follow the clay culture trail

An example of the work produced by artists on the trail.

A new Christmas Open House event, the Clay Culture Trail, will be featuring 13 ceramicists from across East Sussex. It will be in four venues in Hastings for one week-end only, December 8 and 9 between 10:30am and 4:30pm.

This outing can be combined with a visit to the recently opened Common Clay, an open access studio on 2 Mount Pleasant Road, Hastings, providing studio space, work shops and kiln hire. It is also holding open days over the same week-end. If interested please email

This is a chance to buy work from both local ceramicists and others rarely seen in Hastings such as Katy Shuricht’s silky raku vessels and Stephen Atkinson-Jones’ spectacular lusterware bowls. With three venues just off the Ridge and one behind Queen’s Road, Hastings, it will make a very pleasant winter week-end treat.
