Tracey Johnston Ceramics Open Studio

Featured Image

Come along to the Potters Bothy in the Sensory Garden at Castle Espie and meet the maker, Tracey Johnston in her new studio space.

Castle Espie has a history of brick, pipe, tile and pottery works. Research is underway into the historic importance of this site and special consideration is being given to the preserved pieces of pottery, which are on display in the visitor centre. The aim is to produce a new body of work which spans the transition of potteries to nature reserve, speaking both of the past and the present use of this wonderful part of Strangford Lough.
The most recent work has been a large salt pig dated 1874 which is currently being reproduced, 150 years later.


The open studio will take place on Tuesday 13th, Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th August between 10am – 4pm.

No booking required.
