It’s been a busy few months…
I graduated as Master of Arts in Historic Environment Conservation from Ironbridge, Birmingham University in July. My programme was slightly extended as I took time off for my Churchill Fellowship over the summer last year and returned to publish my report and embark on my dissertation over Christmas and New Year.
I attended my Winston Churchill Medallion Ceremony in May, which was a wonderful day and an opportunity to meet other Fellows as well as reconnect with the Churchill Memorial Trust in celebrating achievements.

I also moved into a new workshop earlier in the year – West Street Loft. I’ve been enjoying a shorter commute as well as the gorgeous historic flinty nature of the building, whilst settling into my new work-space and enjoying working alongside other ceramicists again. I’ve completed a batch production run project over the summer and comleted installation of an outdoor sculpture – pictures to follow.
West Street Loft is a large building, comprising workshop spaces on the ground floor and a venue space in the Upper Loft (home to fitness and yoga classes, a Mini-Cine amongst other events and private hire)
West Street Loft’s website has launched!
I presented at West Street Loft in June and used the projector and huge screen to full effect to show photography and terracotta adventures from my Fellowship in a presentation titled the Rise of the Skyscraper, as part of this year’s Love Architecture Festival. The talk was repeated later in the month in central Brighton for Threshold Hub‘s pop up architecture event in the myHotel car park.
I’m looking forward to what the Autumn brings, with promises of exciting projects and new experiences.
But first, a bit of a rest and relaxation…
