Our lectures always start at 11:00 on a Tuesday. It is usually the last Tuesday of the month but do look at the actual details as that sometimes changes. The lectures are held at the Pavilion Arts Centre in Buxton with the Pavilion Gardens Car Park (off Burlington Road) near by.

We are proud to sponsor another art-based event at the Buxton International Festival. Last year’s Turner Prize winning artist, Jeremy Deller’s talk was greatly enjoyed by our members so we have high hopes that our choice this year will be equally well received.

Florian Gadsby has devoted his life to pottery, refining his technique towards the point of perfection – and as his skill has grown, so has his social media following, which today numbers in the millions. Based at a studio in North London, he releases three new collections per year, characterized by simple forms and sharp edges,
which sell out in a matter of minutes. In By My Hands, Florian tells the story of his artistic awakening and of the sheer discipline which has led him to become the cultural sensation he is today. Arguing for the value in dedicating yourself to a craft, Florian weaves anecdotes about particular pots and processes into the narrative of his life and apprenticeship.
