Make Halloween Clay Monsters at Coalport China Museum (13th September 2011)

Make Halloween Clay Monsters at Coalport China Museum

Create your own Halloween monsters at Coalport China Museum, Shropshire during the autumn school half-term. The museum will be running drop-in monster themed ceramic workshops from Monday 24th to Friday 28th October where you can make all manner of strange creatures from clay, which can later be despatched to your home.

You can also paint your own bug or snake shaped fridge magnets or you might prefer to create your own green-eyed Halloween ghost or wicked witch. You can also draw monsters with coloured crayons to take away on the day. 

Held daily from 11am - 1pm and 2pm - 4pm, the workshop activities will vary from day-to-day and most carry an extra charge in addition to the museum entrance free; these range from £1 to £4 per item, plus postage and packing to send your clay monster back home after firing (paper activities are free). 

The workshops are part of a programme of days out, exhibitions and festivals celebrating the 25th anniversary of Ironbridge Gorge being designated as one of the UK’s first World Heritage Sites in 1986.

Coalport is a member of the ten-strong Ironbridge Gorge Museums, an annual Passport can be purchased for entry into all ten valid for twelve months and unlimited return visits priced at £22.50 per adult, £18.25 for the 60 plus, £14.75 for students and children and £61.50 for a family of two adults and three children aged up to 18 years in full time education; under 5s free. For those on a shorter time scale, individual admission is available into any of the sites.

The museums are open seven days a week from 10am until 5pm; for further information, contact the Ironbridge Tourist Information Centre on Tel: 01952 433 424 or visit www.ironbridge.org.uk.  The Gorge is easily reached via the M6 and M54 motorways exiting at Telford (M54 junction 4 or 6).
