Join us for our popular Winter online talks on Worcester porcelain monthly from December 2022 through March 2023.
As the weather gets colder enjoy warming seasonal insights into the history of Worcester porcelain.
For our 2022-23 Winter Online talks on Worcester porcelain we’re delighted to welcome knowledgeable speakers Design Historian Alyssa Myers and well-known antiques experts Paul Crane, John Sandon and Philip Serrell to explore themes and highlights from the Museum’s collections and special examples of Worcester from national and private collections. We’ll range from 18th century festive dining and hot drinks to inspiration from China and the great Worcester artists of the 20th century.
These talks are offered free of charge but we welcome donations to support the Museum’s work looking after the collections and making them available as widely as possible. You can donate as part of the booking process if you wish or by clicking the donate link on each page. Why we need your help.
