This half term at World of Wedgwood, Stoke-on-Trent, there’s plenty going on from themed creative activities where children can make a unique gift ready for Mother’s Day to Factory Tours where you can learn about the processes behind production, and our children’s Museum trail with a prize for every child!

Plus, free Museum entry for everyone and free Factory Tours for under 12’s!

The award-winning Factory Tour is available Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm with last entry at 3pm and is free for under 12’s! Take a guided or self-guided tour to discover how Wedgwood is made.

The Wedgwood Museum; free entry, every day 10am to 5pm. Discover the history of over 250 years of ground-breaking design and production. Younger visitors can take the Pottery Spotters trail which will guide them through the UNESCO recognised V&A collection, with a prize for every completed activity sheet.

Create: Pot Throwing, Pottery Painting and Ceramic Design
Three creative activities for children (and adults!) to choose from, available every day from 10am. Come and make a unique Mother’s Day gift that will be treasured forever.

Throw a pot on the potter’s wheel in our Master Craft studio, with help from our skilled team choose from 7 different styles to produce your own pottery masterpiece!

Get creative and draw your own design to be transferred onto a piece of Wedgwood, choose from plates, mugs, cups and saucers. Using pencils, crayons and felt tips you can let your imagination go wild, using inspiration from Wedgwood designs, to create a piece of art to be treasured forever.

Younger visitors especially will love our Pottery Painting activities, choose from clay cut out shapes including hearts, flowers and stars; and plant pots, vases and tealight holders to paint and give to your mum on Mother’s Day.
