New Linthorpe

New Linthorpe is a project developed by Middlesbrough born artist Emily Hesse and curator James Beighton. Inspired by the original Linthorpe Art Pottery, Middlesbrough the project intends to re-visit the idea and value of a social enterprise through the medium of local clay. The work carried out is guided by the belief in not just the ability but also the responsibility of art to make a difference to lives. Social making and community input through discussion formulate the project outcomes, which aim to establish ceramics as a viable industry once again here on Teesside.
