The Potting Shed is a permanent multi-functional artwork installed at sculpture park, Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer. It was designed by Collective Matter, in collaboration with furniture designer Geoffrey Hagger as a platform for experimentation and making. Programme 2019 investigated the value and models of contemporary of social practice through a series of interventions, events and workshops from three artists and arts organisations:
Loughborough based arts organisation, Modern Painters, New Decorators hosted an exhibition at The Shed, A Mountain is a Mountain, which showcased series of community made ceramics, display structures and posters, using collaborative curation to explore workshop outputs.
Working as an extension of their current social enterprise project, The Portland Inn in Stoke on Trent, Rebecca and Anna organised a two day gathering of learning, socialising and debate. Through clay workshops, campouts and discussion, they investigated the power of art for social change.
Emily Motto created a sculptural drawing through the Potting Shed - The Obstacle Course - which engaged with movements of people passing through the space, creating a space for collaborative making, material investigation and play.
