Visited the Iron Bridge Museums and was surprised that I really enjoyed the China Museum. I did not see a pottery demonstartion but there was a pleasant girl hand painting small bowls - very delicate work I felt. The highlight for me were the Glass blowers who were friendly and informative while they made a large goblet. A worthwhile visit.
Very interesting place to visit I particularly liked going into the kiln to see how they used to fire the porcelain, good display of Coalport China in the museum. Some activities for children.
my wife and i have a fair number of Coalport figurines,but the past few years the quality has been lacking,when i spoke to a member of staff i was informed most of the Coalport figurines now come from China,what a sad dissapointment another industry consigned to the past.
A very interesting museum full of information and displays of all the different examples of Coalport china through the ages, as well as the kilns and also demonstrations of today's figurine making, etc, Part of the Ironbridge Museums package it is well worth a visit.
I love it here, particularly at Christmas. The shop is lovely and I always pick up something pretty for my tree. They do lovely workshops throughout the year too which are well worth joining.
This is a museum which is always a pleasure to visit. The shop is well stocked with an interesting selection of goods. The displays are well arranged with the relevent information regarding the china.The tour then takes you outside to the workshops where there are pottery demonstrations. The walks into & around the insides of the giant kilns are impressive.... 更多
The staff here where very friendly and helpful. I was slightly worried about taking a 4 year old to a museum or anywhere for that matter full of china. Luckily it's all locked away. There is so much more to see here then plates, there are demonstrations on how items are made, the old buildings, activities for kids. Great place... 更多
