Education

The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery provides a range of inspiring workshops for Foundation to Key Stage 4 classes. Our workshops have been carefully developed to inspire, involve and motivate. We offer hands on, interactive workshops where your pupils can get up close to our amazing collections. Our collections include: local history, natural science, fine art, craft and ceramics.

We are currently accepting school visits for booked workshops. All our workshops are Covid safe. They are designed to support learning in the classroom and we are able to make adaptations to workshops to suit different access needs. Many of our workshops can help you towards gaining your Arts Award.

You can also hire our School Loans Boxes about WW2: Evacuees, The Stone Age, Fossils, Anglo Saxons and Ancient Egypt. They contain real and replica artefacts to bring the museum into your classroom.

Access our free learning resources on our Family Home Learning Page. Here we bring together learning resources inspired by our collections, including activities, trails and worksheets. It includes activities which can support working towards an Arts Award.
