My Bee Pot has gone on loan

From this week my Bee Pot will be on display for 6 months at Cliffe Castle in Keighley. It’s a fantastic place to visit and the pot was inspired by their collections. You can also see my Bradford Boar Pot at Platform Gallery in Clitheroe until January 2019.

Women in British History 

7 July – 15 September

Women In British History - An exhibition of works by Katch Skinner who uses traditional commemorative ware to look at just a small selection of amazing women who left their mark throughout British history. Commemorative ware has been used to document events from political satire to holiday souvenirs and has been used as a social indicator of the times. The work challenges the male dominance of commemorative ware and pays tribute to female trailblazers and visionaries who helped change society.
