Historic Life Weekend: Clay & Pottery

Historic Life Weekend: Clay & Pottery

During this weekend we will look at the everyday items made from clay, both those used in the home, but also in construction.

Potters will:

share their skills
demonstrate how pots are formed and thrown on a wheel, and
talk about the development of different objects over time.
Also find out more from our demonstrators and staff at our brick drying shed on the preparation of the clay and the brickmaking industry.

Clay for ovens will be another theme, and we hope to build a bread oven, near the Saxon building during this weekend to use during the following Historic Life Weekend on baking (17-18 April).

A full programme will be published online ahead of the weekend.
