#ClayAtHome Growing Cultures

In this video, we’re covering science, health and the world of bacteria!

Inspired by the ceramic penicillin culture vessels, originally produced in Stoke-on-Trent, Growing Cultures explore the connections between health, medicine and history. Learn about the discovery of penicillin, the development of antibiotics and different types of good and bad bacteria from the worksheet then have a go at making your own bacteria cell from clay or salt dough!

Clay At Home is an online creative learning programme to get people experimenting and engaging with clay in their homes. The programme includes video demonstrations of hands-on activities, podcast interviews with artists and social networking events.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #ClayAtHome to share your creations with us and the rest of the community taking part in the programme.
