Historical & Ancient Ceramic Technology, Workshops, Demonstrations & Replicas
Workshops for Schools
My historical pottery workshops for schools cover all ages from reception to sixth form.  All of my workshops include: A demonstration of pot making; A handling collection; Discussion of how pots were made and used; A hands-on element which gives the children something to keep from the day's work.
