Touching History: Late

Come & join us for an early evening celebration of Stoke Your Gratitude’s Touching History project. The exhibition, film & other related exhibits launches earlier in the day (12noon onwards). This ‘late’ event is a chance to meet some of the project partners, take a look at the display & enjoy a relaxed ‘early doors’ get together with friends old & new.

(FREE) Drink & nibbles for all visitors!

Touching History is a collaborative project between Stoke Your Gratitude C.I.C., the Royal National Institute of Blind People and the Tiles & Architectural Ceramics Society (TACS). Some of the outcomes will be tactile models for visually impaired people & a project book featuring a selection of specially chosen Minton & Co. encaustic tile designs of the period 1840-42.

Two modified shipping containers installed in the former loading bay of this historical ceramic tile works help to form an exciting & unusual micro venue for The Potteries.

Exhibition & event location: CLAYHEAD, Winkhill Mill, Swan Street, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 7RH

ACCESS: CLAYHEAD is located in a working historical factory building. There are a number of steps & small spaces which means access is limited for some people unfortunately.
