Bluecoat’s inclusive arts project celebrates ten years of creativity with an exhibition created for the anniversary. Inspired by images from the project’s extensive photographic archive, Blue Room artists have collaborated with Louise Waller and Alice Odgers from Baltic Clay to create a collection of ceramics which reference Bluecoat potter Julia Carter Preston (1926 – 2012), exploring her sgraffito technique. The exhibition also features screen prints created at Bluecoat Print Studio in collaboration with artist Becky Peach.  Images and films about Blue Room and Julia Carter Prestonare on our My Bluecoat archive website ( Blue Room at Ten is part of DaDaFest International 2018.
