Helen Felcey is a ceramics–based artist and educator. Her professional experience traces a story of material practice intertwined with educational practice, undertaking artistic research in the field of ceramics. In 2009 she began to explore ways in which the use of ceramic as material and craft might feed into collaborative practice across a broader range of activity,  within art, health and educational contexts. She experimented with bringing different material and artistic voices together through projects such as the Pairings Project (2010), Manchester School of Art (MSA), and the co-edited book with Kettle and Ravetz, Collaboration Through Craft (Berg: 2013), which explored debates about the collaborative/social power of craft. Since 2018, she has been working closely with artist-researcher Prisk Falin. Together they have realised Emboied Clay (2018) and Sensorial Ground (2020) for the British Cerammics Biennial National Summer School Programme. Their collaboration has formed an ongoing conversation, which cotinually nourishes and extends the parameters of personal approaches to artistic research and practice. Helen tutors at Liverpool Hope University and Manchester School of Art. Alongside her work in arts and education, she is a trustee of Gomde UK Tibetan Buddhist Centre.  Her website helenfelcey.co.uk includes a variety of artistic and educational projects and roles undertaken since 2008.
