The Museum of Royal Worcester and Royal Porcelain Works are pleased to invite the local community to be involved in exciting inter-generational workshops with artists Neil Musson and Jono Retallick, who have been commissioned by Worcester City Council to create public artwork in response to the heritage of Worcester Porcelain on the former factory site. The artwork project is enabled by S106 developer contributions and will include a sculpture near the Museum of Royal Worcester and Royal Porcelain Works, as well as wall-mounted tactile ‘hallmarks’ marking significant locations around the original factory.
We are inviting participation from individuals, groups, and organisations local to and with a connection to the Severn Street site via free workshops which will run on Friday 19th (12:45pm), Friday 26th (12:45pm) or Saturday 27th (10am) and will last for approximately 90 minutes.
During the workshops, Neil and Jono will talk about their process of creating site specific art followed by creative practical tasks suitable for all age groups. On a voluntary basis, participants will also be invited to contribute stories, memories and future aspirations which will help inform the final artworks. The artists are keen to run inter-generational sessions, and their previous projects can be viewed here.
