The 1st International Paperclay Symposium was held at the ICS in August 2004.

This international ceramic workshop featured acknowledged masters using paper and fibre clay from 13 countries.
9th - 30th August, 2004

This important gathering featured some of the worlds leading paperclay artists.

During the three week syposium, workshop participants created new works, shared information and learned new techniques through the formal and informal sessions, discussed the advances and developments in this relatively new and expanding field of ceramics through the series of slide shows and lectures from all the participants.

The workshop culminated in an exhibition of the work created during the symposium in the Museum of the International Ceramics Studio.
