Book tickets


In 2023 spring season, Messums celebrates contemporary ceramic across all our venues.

A symposium on April 1st will highlight the diverse potential of the material in art with talks from our exhibiting artists and leading ceramic experts and a highlight talk from Paul Greenhalgh, author of ‘Ceramic, Art and Civilisation’ (Bloomsbury, 2020).

The symposium will be accompanied by clay workshops at Messums Chilmark studios and will celebrate the firing of our wood-fired kiln, built on-site at Messums Wiltshire by the artist Thiébaut Chagué for his exhibition in the Tithe Barn.
