Ancient Craft: Medieval Tile Making

Bookings open 24 October 2016

Suitable for ages 13+

Working with the Museum's medieval tile collection, you will learn about the industry which connects Nottingham and the tiles found at the grave of Richard III in Leicester. Using carved wooden pattern blocks to recreate the methods used to make medieval tiles over 600 years ago, your tile will be carefully finished, fired and returned for you to treasure.

These classes are run by craftspeople who undertake experimental archaeological work to try and understand how objects where made and used in the past.
