CLAYHEAD: Fun Palaces 2019

11:00am - 3:00pm Sunday 6th October Winkhill Mill, Swan Street, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 7RH  

Come & help to CREATE a unique Potteries’ Fun Palace during this special national weekend. EVERYONE WELCOME – visit, get involved, make & share stuff. Join a COMMUNITY-IN-RESIDENCE for a gentle celebration of who we are & where we live! This is a chance to do what you want to do in CLAYHEAD Secret Museum; a DIY pop up resource located in part of a historical ceramic tile factory. It's a friendly & informal space for sharing a cuppa & stories. You can see locally made ceramics & find out more about the items private & public histories. You can also share your own 'ceramic city story' of course! Have you got a crock to promote conversations or maybe a tile with a tale? Bring it down on the day; we look forward to making you welcome!

Fun Palaces is essentially a ‘take-over’ event; we never quite know what will happen! In previous years individuals have brought ceramics, photos & paper archives to share on the day. Contributors have shared (their own) artwork, collection items & all sorts of interesting material. Some have even offered impromtu ‘have-a-go’ skills workshops.

You never know who & what you might bump in to on the day; turn up, take a look & get involved!
