A new programme of Discover Wedgwood experiences aimed at educating about the company’s history and legacy

Wedgwood, ceramics and history fans can now find out more about the fascinating stories hidden within the Wedgwood Museum’s extensive collections, direct from the curatorial team, with the launch of its new programme of Discover Wedgwood experiences.

There are three Discover Wedgwood packages available – Bronze, Silver and Gold – to appeal to everyone from seasoned academics conducting in depth research to those who simply want to find out more about a certain aspect of Wedgwood’s history and legacy.

As well as being able to choose between a Gold, Silver or Bronze package, there is also an extensive selection of thought-provoking and engaging subjects on offer. Therefore attendees can book their preferred date depending on the topic that most interests them.

All Discover Wedgwood experiences include Wedgwood tea, ethically sourced coffee and cakes on arrival and unlimited access to the Wedgwood Museum’s galleries for the whole day. In addition, each package includes the following:

* Discover Wedgwood Bronze: A two-hour session with an Assistant Curator who will give a themed talk followed by a tour of the galleries for questions and answers.
* Discover Wedgwood Silver: A three-hour session with an Assistant Curator followed by questions and answers in the Museum galleries. Also included is hands-on access to the Museum archives and a delicious buffet lunch.
* Discover Wedgwood Gold: The most exclusive of the Discover Wedgwood experiences, Discover Wedgwood Gold includes five hours with Gaye Blake Roberts, the Wedgwood Museum’s esteemed Curator. During this time attendees will be treated to a fascinating themed talk, questions and answers in the Museum galleries and hands-on access to its archives. A delicious formal lunch with the Curator in the World of Wedgwood’s restaurant, the Dining Hall, is also included.

Lucy Lead, archivist at World of Wedgwood Museum, says: “The Discover Wedgwood programme offers people the unique opportunity to spend time with the Wedgwood Museum’s curatorial team. Each of the sessions is the perfect treat for anyone wishing to delve deeper into the phenomenal breadth and impact of Wedgwood’s legacy on the world as we know it.”
