Lets Go Potty
8th February – 31 May 2021:
Join us and Lets Go Potty!
Our online Community Exhibition of Pots with Stories has been a great success. So many people have taken the time to send in pictures of their cherished pieces and share their fascinating stories with us. We would like to thank everybody who has contributed. If you would like to see more click here
Continuing in this vein, and while Julian Richards’ beautiful pottery exhibition is still on display at the museum, we would like to share the “Let’s Go Potty” story with you. You can read about how the Learning Team visited six local schools with Julian Richards and delivered a hands-on Let’s Go Potty experience in the Autumn of 2019. Indeed, some of the pots that the children created are now on display in our special exhibition gallery. Find out more here
We invite you to get creative and make your own pots. Using materials you have to hand, from playdough, papier-mache, clay or using the salt dough recipe provided in the Little Explorers section, go a bit potty yourself… we’d love to see what you’ve made.
Just email a photo of your pot and a brief description of how it was made (max 100 words) to: [email protected]. You can include your name to run alongside it or remain anonymous if you prefer.
The pots, along with a selection made by the children in school, will form a community on-line exhibition #LetsGoPotty
If you don’t want to submit a pot of your own, you can still take part in the exhibition by visiting the us on Facebook, Instagram or twitter and liking and commenting on your favourite images.
