About

Breaking The Mould, at Queen’s Mill Castleford, is a performance celebrating Alice Gostick.


You’ve heard of famous Castleford sculptor Henry Moore and fellow artists Albert Wainwright and Arthur Dalby. Yet have you heard of the inspirational woman behind them all? Their teacher Alice Gostick. Alice taught the boys the art of Peasant Pottery, helping fire up a movement throughout the country for hand painting ceramics.


Now, for the first time, her story takes centre stage in an exciting new play from Empath Action CIC about her life, her convention-breaking pottery classes, and her brilliant, boundary-breaking students.


Breaking the Mould is funded by Wakefield Council as part of Our Year – Wakefield District 2024, and is part of a wider project to celebrate and blue plaque the life of Alice Gostick.


This event was supported with a Culture Grant by Wakefield Council.
