Miss Helen Felcey

Fine Art and Design

I'm a ceramics-based artist, educator and curator. I hold an MA in Ceramics from Cardiff School of Art and a BA in Three Dimensional Design from Manchester School of Art.

My research interests blend craft, design and social well-being. Combined with my work in education, I have exhibited ceramics and worked collaboratively to curate projects and publish within the field. I have taught in academia since 2002, at Manchester School of Art (2002-2016) and more recently at Liverpool Hope University (2017 - present). 

Since 2009, I have also worked with the British Ceramics Biennial, contributing to curatorial, community and educational programmes. My main role has been as associate curator for Fresh - an exhibition of emerging artists in contemporary ceramics in the UK and Ireland. 

In 2022 I became Secretary to the Board of Trustees for the Artists' Benevolent Fund. The ABF has been supporting artists for over 200 years. Today, our aim is to enable artists to launch, develop and sustain a professional career

My website includes a variety of artistic projects and roles undertaken since 2008.
