This workshop aims to foster a community of people interested in 3D ceramic printing giving them the skills to use the machine going forward. Due to very limited places on the workshop, the application process means those participants who will benefit most from this experience will be prioritised, subject to availability.
Participants will be notified if they have been selected for the workshop by Monday 15th August.

Jonathan Keep is an artist and potter who lives and works on the Suffolk coast in the UK. Working as a full time independent artist and freelance educator Jonathan has taught, undertaken artist residencies and exhibited widely at home and abroad.
He is a leading exponent of studio based ceramic 3D printing and has been invited to lecture or present workshops on the subject in over fifty institutions in more than twenty countries. His approach is one of openness and sharing with a desire to present a complex subject in simple, everyday terms.

Josef Stöger is an Artist and Designer living in London, UK. After graduating from the Bartlett School of Architecture, he is currently exploring ceramic 3D printing as well as creating immersive, interactive VR experiences for galleries and brands. Josef believes technology can be harnessed to bring human civilisation closer to nature. Art also has a powerful influence on the social, economic and political dynamics of the world. It can provide respite from the monotony of daily life and spark creativity and joy in the population. By burrowing into the intersection of art, nature and technology with a passion, he is interested in solving at least some of the many problems facing our global society now and in the future.
