Clay meets Canals aboard the Clay Cargo boat
Clayground Collective invites people to get stuck into clay and making. Clay Cargo is a three-year project devised with the British Ceramics Biennial and the Canal & River Trust. Inspired by Josiah Wedgwood, ceramic industrialist and pioneering investor in the canal system, Clay Cargo renews historic links between canals and waterways today. The Clay Cargo boat, hosted by Fordham Gallery and skipper Man Somerlinck, is moored for a short time in the summer on the Regent Canal, Kings Cross, London. Here we welcome groups from Camden Libraries to learn about ceramics and ceramic traditions, the waterways, and clay’s uses at technology’s leading edge.
