Pottery Day (3rd March - Acaster Malbis nr York)
Acaster Malbis Memorial Hall
Saturday 3rd March 2012, 10am–3pm
Cost: Bargain Price £5!
This informal study day for adults will provide an introduction to medieval and post-medieval pottery – especially the types of pottery you are likely to find when field walking or excavating in and around York.
The day will be led by potter John Hudson. John is a long term member of the Medieval Pottery Research Group and a current member of its Council. His pots can be found nationwide in museums and large house as well as being made for television period pieces. Most of the pottery used in the kitchen areas of Hampton Court Palace, London have been made by John. His most rewarding commission has been the floor, ridge tiles and wares for Barley Hall, a reconstructed 15th century house in York.
John will be teaching us through means of a talk and a practical demonstration.
The event will be held at the Acaster Malbis Memorial Hall, Mill Lane, Acaster Malbis YO23 2UJ. The hall is the first building on the right in Mill Lane. Parking is available behind the hall.
Please note that tea and coffee will be available but that lunch will not be provided.
