Inside Rochester Square

Video: Inside Rochester Square

Did you know about this oasis of food gardening and pottery in the middle of Camden?

Francesca Anfossi welcomes us into her studio and garden in our latest video, where we take you inside Rochester Square. Press play to explore around the untamed creative idyll, meet Rochester Square’s animals and look through the pages of the studio’s new book, ‘From the Pot to the Earth, all while hearing Fran’s story about how she started this beautiful oasis in the middle of Camden.

Created in 2016 out of an abandoned and derelict nursery site, Rochester Square aims to bring people and communities together through ceramic making facilities and socially-engaged projects. They welcome people of all ages to grow and make things. 

Centred around clay, food and garden this special plot of land in the borough works with the earth’s natural magic. Read the feature from our last magazine here.
