Wild Garlic Day

Come and join us for a day in the Shropshire countryside learning about a free superfood that grows on our doorstep.   We will take a walk in the morning (2miles) up into Sallow Coppice where wild garlic grows profusely at this time of year. Here we will be able to see, smell and pick some garlic for our afternoon session and look out for wildlife along the way.   On our return to the Discovery Centre we will have lunch in our cafe, and then in the afternoon, we will make wild garlic pesto from the garlic we picked this morning.  

Date: 7th April 2018

Decorate tiles with Easter chicks and bunnies

Create your own Easter themed designs at drop-in tile decorating workshops as part of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum’s ‘Create Something New’ activities that are taking place across the Gorge over the Easter break. Motifs can be as colourful and original as your imagination allows, perhaps an Easter bunny, baby chick, chocolate egg or a bouquet of spring flowers. The Victorian tube lining technique will be used to decorate the tiles, which is just like icing a cake! Once you’ve piped on the design you can add colourful glazes, then leave your tile at the museum for firing. Tiles cost from £5 each and can be sent home after firing for a small p&p charge.
