Tuesday, June 2, 2015 - 16:00 to 17:00

Miranda Goodby, collections officer at The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, will be giving a fantastic talk about the migration of Staffordshire potters to the U.S. This lecture draws on the letters those emigrants wrote to their families back in Stoke; many of which give a fascinating and often poignant account of their new lives and the pottery they made there.  

The talk forms part of the Ceramic History Talks series at Middleport Pottery, featuring experts from The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery and Burleigh.

Tickets cost £2.50, pre-booking is recommended. Call 01782 499766, email middleport@princes-regeneration.org, or click on the link below.
