Worcestershire’s youngest ever Poet Laureate Rhianna Levi is with us for wordgames and play – what fruit story will you tell with the words she brings?
We’re really excited that Engage with China is joining us to uncover symbolism in some of the chinese art motifs on the first Worcester porcelain – learn about the names and meanings of different fruits in china, you can try your hand at calligraphy and learn some chinese characters … and try the chopsticks dexterity challenge – how many raisins can you pick up?!
Paint-Your-Own-Pottery will be available in our Ceramic Studio (additional charges apply) – you can decorate a unique fruit bowl or platter for your table using our ceramic colours or choose from our wide range of unglazed pottery shapes to paint – from cupcake trinket boxes to football money banks.
