Easter themed tile decorating workshops at Jackfield Tile Museum, Ironbridge

Create your own Easter themed ceramic tiles at family drop-in tile decorating workshops during the Easter school holidays at Jackfield Tile Museum in Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge.

The fun and informal sessions will take place between Saturday, 26th March and Friday, 8th April, excluding Easter Sunday 27th March and 3rd April.

The Victorian tube lining technique will be used to decorate the 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.
