Ceramic figures have been a mainstay of Stoke-on-Trent’s ceramics industry since the late-18th century and Potteries Museum & Art Gallery have an extensive collection of these fascinating objects. This CLAY Museum project will ask students to look at the different types of figures in our collection; who is represented? Why were these people chosen? And who would they represent as a figure today?
The Cast of Thousands workshop will link to aspects of the English and History Curriculum, giving students the opportunity to explore ideas of story-telling and character building through exploration of the collections and a hands-on ceramics workshop.
CLAY Museum is a partnership between The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery and BCB British Ceramics Biennial.
Linked to Key Stage 3 & 4 English, History and Art & Design
