British Ceramics Biennial (BCB) is the UK’s premiere contemporary ceramics festival that takes place in Stoke-on-Trent. BCB presents art-works from the UK’s leading ceramicists alongside international artists, in exhibitions and special events held across the city.

Artists Duncan Hooson and Stephanie Buttle have come together to create 22 Hands, an exhibition, performance, workspace and intervention at the World of Wedgwood, home of the world renowned Wedgwood factory and the award winning Wedgwood Museum.  The title 22 Hands refers to the number of hands that handle a pot during its factory production process.

Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 October

Performances | Talks | Workshops

On the final weekend of the BCB Festival the 22 Hands event will culminate in an interactive residency where artists Duncan Hooson and Stephanie Buttle will be working within the site-specific installation they have created. Here, they invite the public to come and join in with their thinking and making as it happens. There will be opportunities for people to get involved with making, movement, and gesture all directly relating to the artists processes.
