Throughout human history, clay creations have been used to record the lives and experiences of our fellow humans, even during the Black Death pandemic of the 1300s. In this extra special Medieval tile-carving workshop, you will have the chance to create and record your own stories in clay about your experiences of the covid-19 pandemic. Alongside master potters from the Greenfield Pottery and an expert archaeologist, you will explore how Medieval encaustic tiles were made and what they can tell us about the history's most well-known pandemic, the Black Death. Your unique tile creations will form part of one-off public exhibition at the historic Greyfriars building in Lincoln city.
This workshop will also take place in Lincoln on Monday 15 November.
