Create Strange Tiles Decorated with Amazing Aliens at Jackfield Tile Museum (8th January 2013)

Create Strange Tiles Decorated with Amazing Aliens at Jackfield Tile Museum

Let your imagination run wild this February half-term at the Amazing Aliens themed tile decorating workshops at Jackfield Tile Museum in Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge. Design a weird and wonderful creature inspired by the mysteries of outer space and tube line the alien on a ceramic tile using your own choice of colours, which will be sent home a few days later. The drop-in sessions will take place from Monday 18 to Friday 22 February 2013.

The Victorian tube lining technique will be used to decorate the 6 x 6 inch tiles, which are priced from £5 per tile (p&p extra to have your tile sent home after firing) plus the museum admission fee. Workshops start from 10am, but allowing up to 1½ hours to decorate your tile, last admission is at 3.15pm.

Open 10am to 5pm Jackfield is one of the Ironbridge Gorge Museums. A great value Annual Passport Ticket allowing entry into all ten museums, valid for twelve months and unlimited return visits, costs £23.25 per adult, £18.75 for the 60 plus, £15.25 for students and children and £64 for a family of two adults and all their children aged up to 18 years in full time education (terms and conditions apply); under 5s free. Activities and workshops vary day-to-day and some carry an extra charge in addition to the museum admission fee. Individual museum entry tickets are also available.
