Talk on Rorke’s Drift ceramics at the Tatham

2017-08-30 06:02

PROFESSOR Ian Calder will present an illustrated talk and walkabout on Rorke’s Drift ceramics in the lecture hall at the Tatham Art Gallery in Chief Albert Luthuli Street at 2.30pm on Friday, September 1.

Rorke’s Drift, near Dundee in northern KZN, is the historical site of the battle between British forces and Zulu warriors following the battle of Isandlwana in 1879.

In the sixties a well-known craft centre was established there by Scandinavian missionaries and teachers.

The ceramics studio became well known for its unique fusion of African and Western styles and techniques.

Calder will elaborate on the history­ of these studio ceramics, which became internationally popular and collectable.

Entry to the lecture and walkabout is free.

Students are encouraged to attend.
