Interested in pottery and traditional crafts? Come and witness kiln-building in action at the Fitzwilliam Museum. Led by renown ceramicist and scholar Dr Abbas Akbari (University of Kashan), a group of volunteers will build a wood-fired pottery kiln on the Museum’s North Lawn, which will be fired in a series of public events over the course of the following week.
Learn from researchers about medieval Iranian ceramics and visit the Fitzwilliam’s outstanding Islamic collection. Drop-in event, no booking required. Please note that this event is weather-dependent.
This event is being run as part of the Being Human Festival.
