The British Ceramics Biennial’s Education Programme uses big ideas and innovation to develop engaging, hands-on activity that creates enthusiasm for clay at all stages of learning: EYFS, Primary, and Secondary.

Using a cross-curricular approach to clay in and out of the classroom our programme seeks to facilitate an understanding of self and place, pride, creativity, and a connection to heritage which includes the diversity and regeneration of the city. These aims are supported by our partnerships across education, industry, and cultural sectors who, like us, believe that every child in Stoke-on-Trent should have the opportunity to get clay under their finger nails and experience the material that built their city.


Our education programme is generously supported by Potclays Ltd, a leading award-winning provider of ceramic supplies and training to the studio ceramics and paint-your-own- pottery markets.
