An evening with Keith Brymer Jones

Event start date

Location

Chorleywood Memorial Hall, Common Road, Chorleywood, WD3 5LN

Event description

Ballet dancer. Front man in an almost famous band. Judge on The Great Pottery Throwdown. How did all that happen?

In his first memoir, Boy in a China Shop, Keith reveals how he went from a North London boyhood to a global success. But this book is about so much more than pottery. It’s about a boy who was given a lump of clay and overcame adversity through hard work, skill and determination.

Keith speaks candidly about his formative experiences, including training as a ballet dancer and leading an almost famous rock band, but also about how dyslexia impacted on his early years. All until a sympathetic art teacher intervened and changed everything.

For years he worked long hours as a ‘clay boy’ at Harefield Pottery to learn his craft, before setting up his own business. Bur his big break came when Heals took a range of his hand=thrown pottery and he’s never looked back.

His emotional connection to the clay and his work has been a constant from the beginning and sits at the centre of this inspirational story, told through a series of chapters centred around meaningful items. Unsurprisingly, most are pots.
