It is obligatory for a ceramics course to schedule at least one visit to Stoke-on-Trent, the home and historical centre of pottery making in England. We had a fully packed day with three visit on the agenda: starting off with a look around the pottery displays in The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, followed by visit to The Gladstone Pottery Museum and finishing off by a buying spree in the shop and a tour around the factory at Potclays. I fully enjoyed the day, especially the tour around the clay-making factory. It was a bit eery and atmospheric as all the employees had left for the day. As for the Potteries Museum there were so many pots to look at that one would benefit from visiting again.
Here are my visit a bit more in detail:
