Join us with Re: Collected exhibition curator Roger Morris and long-serving Trustee of Display Centre, Peter Woods. Roger & Peter will be in conversation with ceramicist Emma Rodgers and other maker guests around the subject of collecting and commissioning contemporary craft.


They will explore themes including why and how to begin the journey of collecting, the rewards of collecting and pitfalls to avoid. Tickets are £3 each and will include a glass of wine. Call us on 0151 709 4014 to book a place, places are limited for this special event.

Curated with collector Roger Morris this exhibition explores themes around collecting including the pleasures of collecting, relationships between the special and the everyday, friendships of the journey and the galleries role in facilitating collecting. Exhibitors include Halima Cassell, Carina Ciscato, Chris Keenan, Jim Partridge, Petrel Furniture, Peter Howcroft, Lisa Kronenberg, Clement McAleer, Emma Rodgers, Kaori Tatebayashi, Ed Teasdale and James & Tilla Waters.

“The work being exhibited will reflect my own taste and interests of ceramics, sculpture and furniture but not be chosen too narrowly! There will be a section of work “borrowed back” in the form of pieces purchased from the Bluecoat Display Centre over the last 30 or so years; some will be from my own collection but we are also asking four or five of Display Centre’s other major customers to lend items in order to show a wider range. The rest of the exhibition will, as usual, be available for purchase. All the items for sale will be from makers who are still active, but some will be very established names, some will be young makers who are still developing their practice, and some will be makers whose work I like but which has not been seen at Display Centre before.” – Roger Morris
