    Making Conversations Podcast

    Making Conversations is a podcast from silversmith Robyn Galway and ceramicist Jemma Millen - both practicing makers and graduates from the applied art department of Ulster University, who share a love of making and craft. Join us on our journey of making conversations with local makers. 

    We are now LIVE! Listen to the very first episode of Making Conversations Podcast where we went on tour to the annual Ulster University Degree Show and spoke to some fresh, new makers due to graduate in 2019.
