"SIX THOUSAND YEARS WITH CLAY"

Albrighton Pottery offers a 55 minute talk on the history of potting.
The session starts with the first urban settlements and ends with the firing of a bottle oven in 19th century Stoke. There is also a 'hands on' element which has been known to cause hilarity. The talk is informative but more of an entertainment than a history lesson with dates.

Cost: £25.00 plus £10.00 travel expenses
Contact John Christophers on 01902 441140 or by email or snail mail at 33 Grange Park, Albrighton, Shropshire WV7 3EN.
