Professor Timothy Darvill OBE will be giving a interesting talk on 'Salt-making around Poole Harbour' as a follow-on from his talk on Early Pottery and you can find a recording of his talk here, on Member's Corner.
It would be great to see some of you attend and of course, we will have time for some Q&A's and
the chance to answer any other queries you may have about our current work as a charity.
We very much look forward to seeing you there!
We have 5 places available for members to attend one of these workshops together to each create a ceramic object that represents your connection with Poole/how you feel about Poole.
The one-day workshop will run over two days (e.g. consecutive Monday mornings) and the creations may go on display at Poole Museum before being shared out to all participants.
If you are interested in being included in the draw for a place at the workshop, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org before end of Friday 7th May.
There will be more information about the project in June's newsletter or you can follow/contribute to Freya's blog https://allfiredupproject.tumblr.com
As part of Freya's All Fired Up programme in September, we will also be holding a member's event to walk around Poole Quay with Freya to discover more about the history of the ceramic tiling in Poole.
More information to follow soon.
