Alice Kettle (right) and Helen Felcey (left) work together as artists and facilitators. They have established reputations in their own creative practices in textiles and ceramics alongside a collaborative body of work that brings these disciplines together. This collaborative approach extends to their curatorship of projects which include the ‘Pairings’ conference at Manchester School of Art (MSA) and ‘Making It’, a multi-disciplinary event in Hampshire. Alice is a Professor and Helen is a Senior lecturer on the MA Design Programmes at MSA.

The ‘New Generation’ event builds on their roles at MMU to extend existing working relationships with Design Manchester and Age-Friendly Manchester, MCC.
