Tile Decorating Workshop at Jackfield Tile Museum

Join a drop-in tile decorating workshop between 10am and 3.30pm and try the tube lining technique to produce your own ceramic masterpiece; you could make a collection of coasters, a circular door plaque or a gift for a loved one on a heart shaped tile. Activities vary from day-to-day; tiles cost from £5 each and can be fired and sent home later for a small extra charge to cover postage and packing. It takes up to 1½ hours to decorate your tile so last admission to the workshops is 2pm.

Traditional Churchyard Management

Learn how to manage a churchyard in the traditional fashion - with a scythe! As part of Church Tourism Week 2017 churchyard charity Caring for God’s Acre will demonstrate how to manage churchyards in the traditional way using the scythe. Before the widespread use of the mower, churchyards were left to flower during the summer months and then scythed in late July. Hay was made and was given to the vicar as part of his stipend. During this day our volunteers (who manage churchyards using scythes every week) will be peacefully scything while Ben, our volunteer co-ordinator, will be on hand to answer any questions.
