What is it?
Take part in a creative tile decorating workshop during the Easter school holidays at the Jackfield Tile Museum, near Ironbridge, Shropshire. You will be able to select your own pattern from a range of Easter themes such as bunnies and baby chicks, or with the Royal Wedding just around the corner, choose a design fit for a young princess about to marry her prince charming. You’ll learn the technique known as ‘tube lining’ or ‘slip-trailing’ to produce a 6 x 6 inch tile featuring your chosen design and colours.
