About I Am a Man and a Brother

To celebrate this year’s BCB, the V&A Wedgwood Collection presents a new exhibition and trail, encouraging exploration of the context and complexities of one of its most iconic pieces. Find it at the V&A Wedgwood Collection, located at World of Wedgwood, Barlaston.

The Wedgwood anti-slavery medallion was created in 1787 for the Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. Students from City of Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College have been exploring the history and contemporary significance of the medallion as a forerunner to the protest badge and have now modelled their own using Wedgwood Jasper.

Join us on the 2nd and 3rd October at The Goods Yard with the BCB Generations Group where we’ll be inviting you to get involved in activities inspired by this historic process of design and manufacture.

To find out more about the project, follow the V&A Wedgwood Collection on Twitter.



All ages welcome – under-11s must be supervised by an adult.  

Suitable for beginners and experienced makers.
