Making Conversations Podcast is a project from silversmith Robyn Galway and ceramicist Jemma Millen - both practicing makers and graduates of the applied art department of Ulster University, who both share a love of making and craft.
“Our aim for the podcast is to connect with local makers and quite simply; make conversations. We hope our episodes will give a wonderful but truthful insight into the reality of each makers discipline and daily working practice as well as shine a light on the locally produced craft that surrounds us.”
Series One launched in August 2019 as part of Craft NI's August Craft Month and focused on five unique conversations held with local makers. The first series also included a bonus Degree Show episode featuring graduates of the Applied Art department at Ulster University.
“For our second series, we are delighted to share how we have received funding from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, as part of their Artist Emergency Fund. This funding means we can bring you ten new maker conversations for our second series. We are so excited to bring you this glimpse into makers lives within/from NI and beyond.”
