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.
