Becoming a Trust
As some of you may know, this is something we've been working on for a long time and over the next year or so a new not for profit organisation will be established. A shadow board of trustees are in place helping us work towards our final destination and we will be sure to keep you updated along the way. Although a big task ahead for the staff and volunteers our aspiration is for a thriving Burton in the future.

Practice Based Ceramics PhD
One of the most exciting pieces of news this season is the awarding of funding from the AHRC to jointly host a PhD around our RJ Lloyd Ceramics Collection, in collaboration with Bath Spa University. Applications are in and we expect the PhD studentship to begin this October.
