Vacant Assembly is an initiative that occupies an old industrial space that celebrates its history, while carefully and purposefully adding to its future. Vacant Assembly believes that everyone desires to connect with places outside of home and work that celebrate the exchange of knowledge, skills, experiences and joy. This enables us to dream much bigger than we thought possible. To assemble is to be open, to create, to innovate, and most importantly, to connect with the people around us.
On Sunday 19 May, Vacant Assembly will open its doors to welcome the community. Come along and meet the resident artists between 10am – 4pm, and get an opportunity to chat about their work and tour their studio.
Resident artists include Sam Eyles, Sarah Seminutin, Laura Pascoe, Sue Hillhouse, Caroline Austin, Chloe Waddell, Julie Smeros and James Murfet.
Visitors can also catch artists Rose Jensen-Holm and Laura Pascoe (from Brush and Wheel) in action, as they conduct ceramic demonstrations from 11am – 1pm to explain their process, techniques and inspirations. The duo will also be selling a selection of their beautiful ceramics on the day.
