An experience for lovers of ceramics, design and English heritage or simply those who are looking for a deeper insight into the world famous Wedgwood brand. 

This Wedgwood Ceramic Experience and Afternoon Tea for Two will get you right to the heart of high-class pottery making with a tour and a session of hands-on crafting.

You’ll see the Wedgwood factory process up close as pieces are made by hand before being fired in the kiln, ready to be finished with all the skill of master crafters ready for a lucky buyer to take home and enjoy. Moving from present to past you’ll have time to learn about founder Josiah Wedgwood in the attached museum, and after you’ve taken it all in you’ll both take part in a tea tasting along with a delicious afternoon tea in the Wedgwood Tea Room.

Of course, seeing is only half of the ceramic story, so you’ll also get to sit down and roll up your sleeves in the Master Craft Studio for so expert tutelage in the art of clay throwing on a potter’s wheel. Your hand-made creation will be fired and sent to your home, so be sure to take your time to make something to take pride of place on your mantelpiece! There's also the opportunity to design and create your very own Wedgwood plate.

The experience is available on midweek days throughout the year.

We recommend you book at least four weeks in advance to ensure that dates are available. All bookings are subject to availability.

Please note: From November to February inclusive the Craft Skills demonstration area will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

The venue is fully accessible to wheelchair users.
