Milo Mckeand will lead this course. Milo is a member of Clay Collective and the face behind Milo Made Ceramics. She describes her work as "slightly dysfunctional functional ware", which seeks to playfully investigate form and function, greatly informed by architecture and the built world. From the beautiful buildings of her home city of London to the imposing monuments of Soviet era Eastern Europe, she translates the unusual shapes around her into three-dimensional clay forms.
