Awesome Ornamentation

Awesome Ornamentation

Taking inspiration from one of the most significant objects relating to the First World War in the Wedgwood Museum - The Peace Medallion - we invited visitors to World of Wedgwood during the February half term holidays to make their very own Wedgwood Plaque using the traditional method of applied ornamentation.

Perfect for all ages, visitors were able to roll out their clay, cut it to shape and apply decoration in their own unique style.  They then had the option to take their finished plaque home or leave it with the team at World of Wedgwood to be fired in the kiln.

As we continue to commemorate the First World War Centenary (2014-2018) look out for more Awesome Ornamentation workshops throughout year.
