Education

The museum is currently closed and we are not taking bookings for educational visits at the moment. We look forwards to welcoming visitors again when we re-open.

In the meantime click here to take a look at our Just For Fun page for quizzes, puzzles and colouring in sheets.

The last complete Victorian pottery factory in Stoke-on-Trent and also a working museum, this unique site will provide your pupils with a fantastic hands-on learning experience. Learn about Victorian working conditions for adults and children and watch our demonstrators as they practice traditional skills in clay. There is also a fully furnished Victorian doctor’s surgery on site, as well as a fascinating exhibitions on ceramic tiles and the history of the toilet. Come here for art, history, citizenship and science activities.

All workshops one and a half hours unless stated otherwise. Note about clay classes: air-dried objects will last well, but for extra strength they can be fired at an additional cost of £1.50 per item. Not all items may survive firing.

Our minimum group size is 12 and our maximum group size is 15. If you have any queries please call us on 01782 237777 or email [email protected] and we’ll be happy to discuss your booking.

If a workshop or tour is cancelled by a school less than 2 weeks before the booked date we reserve the right to charge up to 50% of the cost.
