Alice Kettle joined Annemarie O’Sullivan and ceramic artist Elaine Bolt for a making day with Helen Carnac, on their Making Ground project. This is an Arts Council funded collaborative interdisciplinary project exploring site-specific making at a disused brickworks in Sussex. Sourcing materials from this post-industrial site, basket-maker  are working together.

This research and development project is focusing on a sense of place, changing seasons, and how being closer to the source of our materials, and working together can affect our making. We’re investigating how a collaborative journey emerges and involving other artists to enrich our collaborative process.

During the  Making Space residency at Fabrica, Brighton using willow and clay from the land, they are joined by artists Alice Kettle and Helen Carnac to explore the process of collaboration.
