World of Wedgwood Invites Visitors To ‘Play With Clay’ – 30th – 31st January

Hey-Clay

Anyone who did not get to take part in the World of Wedgwood’s Hey Clay event in December now has another chance to see if they are a Master Potter in the making, with a weekend of ‘Play With Clay’ activities taking place in its Master Craft Studio from 30th – 31st January.

Visitors will once again be able to step up to the potter’s wheel and create their own unique piece of pottery, with help from one of World of Wedgwood’s skilled experts. There is no charge for making a pot, as any unfired clay can be recycled by the World of Wedgwood. For those who would like to keep their work of art though a firing and posting service is available for a small fee.

Heather Broadhurst, General Manager at the World of Wedgwood, said:

“We have been bowled over by the amount of enthusiasm our visitors have for trying their hand at making their own pot. Once they have seen the wonderful collections in the Wedgwood Museum and taken a Factory Tour they are very often inspired to find out for themselves just how much skill and creativity is required to make even a simple vase. The process of throwing a pot is absorbing but exciting at the same time and we are delighted to have the facilities and experts here to allow the public to experience it first hand. People can literally pop in on either the 30th or 31st January to have a go – it’s the perfect activity for anyone out there wanting to start the year by trying something new.”

The World of Wedgwood’s Play With Clay activities will be running on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st January. All ages are welcome and no booking is required. The Master Craft Studio is free to enter. Prices to have a pot fired start from just £10 plus postage.

World of Wedgwood opening times are: Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am – 4pm.
