A chance to get creative the Celtic way! Recreate a timepiece from the days of
the Celts to take home as a momento of our past.
Come to Colchester Castle Museum and join in the fun with Sally Whelton who will
be working with children to expand their creative flare by trying their hands at
the ancient craft of pottery to make your own Celtic cross from Colchester
Castle clay. Taking inspiration from the collection of Celtic objects on
display in the museum.
Sally Whelton is an experienced potter who has worked in schools and is a
regular guest at fairs and festivals. ?Pottery has become such a popular
activity with children in the Castle Museum. It?s great for children to be able
to experience a new craft without any of the mess at home.?
