Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

This creative workshop is for parents or grandparents who have experienced the loss of a child/grandchild at any age (including babies). They are invited to attend a free pottery class where there will be the opportunity to make and personalise a pot to remember this child and to reconnect with precious memories. This could be a pot item to keep at home, or perhaps a gift to leave at a child’s burial site or special memory place. No prior experience of pottery is needed; a tutor from The Art House and members of the Remembering Baby: Life, Loss and Post-Mortem exhibition team will be on hand to walk attendees through the process.


About the exhibition

Remembering Baby: Life, Loss and Post-Mortem is a new exhibition that sensitively challenges taboos surrounding early-life loss. An interdisciplinary research team at the University of Sheffield has worked in collaboration with the British Institute of Radiology artist in residence, Hugh Turvey and sound artist Justin Wiggan, to design and create the exhibition which features a collection of work exploring early-life loss. Visual images, physical objects and sound installations will sensitively explore what happens when a baby dies, from both parental and professional perspectives.

The exhibition is inspired by the ‘End of’ or ‘Start of’ Life?’ research project and is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
