Hands-on Heritage!

On Thursday 22nd February, 19 Year 7 & 8 students visited Wedgwood as part of an ongoing project with the British Ceramics Biennial.

The students were able to look around the museum and galleries to see the fantastic ceramics collection on display.

Students created studies from the pottery they saw, and this provided inspiration for their own plates which they decorated later in the day.

Students also had the opportunity to go on a factory tour to see the process of creating ceramic pieces from start to finish.

Seeing techniques such as the use of sprig moulds allowed students to use this technique when decorating their own plates in the craft studio.

A massive thank you to the British Ceramics Biennial for organising these ongoing activities and opportunities for our students, including trips like this and our weekly ceramics club.
