On 21st August Middleport Pottery will host a Victorian tea party with food demonstrations and a display of jelly mould designs created by artist Nuala Clooney and members of the public.
Traditional jelly moulds from the collection of Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent will take centre stage this summer, as artist Nuala Clooney reimagines traditional pottery designs and techniques at a public tea party.
Working in partnership with members of the local community, Nuala has used original dessert moulds from Middleport’s archive to create new artworks, and to shine a light on the work of early 20th century ceramic designer, Charlotte Rhead. The project will culminate in a tea party at Middleport Pottery on Saturday 21 August.
Middleport is the home of Burleigh pottery and is the UK’s longest-running pottery in continuous production, producing ceramics for more than 130 years. Burleigh still uses traditional skills and techniques, and houses an archive of historic designs and moulds.
