• Crafting Ceramics: Frances Priest
    Shannon Tofts

Join celebrated Edinburgh artist, designer, and maker Frances Priest to hear about her fascinating approach to pattern and decoration in ceramic.

In response to the Julie Cope ceramic tiles in Dovecot’s current Grayson Perry exhibition, Frances will reflect on the challenges and complexities of creating work on a large scale, and will share the stories and inspiration behind her incredible recent commission, The Tiled Corridor, for the Royal Edinburgh Hospital.
