Centenary Anniversary Exhibition

One hundred years ago in 1913, William Moorcroft started his own pottery company in Stoke-on-Trent. His hand painted pottery was based on floral designs and other plant life, and he attracted collectors such as Queen Mary.

Now Moorcraft is celebrating its centenary anniversary, and the Blackwell Arts & Crafts House are holding an exhibition of their work. 100 Years of a Living Art Pottery explores the incredible skill of the designers' works, looking at the vibrant flowing forms of flowers and foliage painted on the pottery's shimmering surface.

Entry to Blackwell Arts & Crafts House In Bowness-on-Windermere is 8 for adults and free for under 16s. The exhibition runs until the 20th July, and includes a 20 workshop, on the 26th April, in which you can create your own tube line designed tile. Tubelining is a ceramic decoration technique that involves piping a thin line of clay onto a piece of pottery to create designs.
