Create your own Easter themed designs at drop-in tile decorating workshops as part of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum’s ‘Create Something New’ activities that are taking place across the Gorge over the Easter break. Motifs can be as colourful and original as your imagination allows, perhaps an Easter bunny, baby chick, chocolate egg or a bouquet of spring flowers. The Victorian tube lining technique will be used to decorate the tiles, which is just like icing a cake! Once you’ve piped on the design you can add colourful glazes, then leave your tile at the museum for firing. Tiles cost from £5 each and can be sent home after firing for a small p&p charge.

Running for the duration of the Easter school break will be the fact finding ‘Feathers and Flight’ trail. Families will need to be eagle-eyed as they pass through the hangars this when they go in search of the answers to six tricky aircraft and bird themed questions. Nestled in amongst the aircraft on display will be the answers to each of their trail questions which highlight the close relationship between aircraft design and birds. Look out for the ‘Feathers and Flight’ boards and jot down the answers on your trail sheet. So, if you have any eagle-eyed youngsters in your family and want to take part, all you need to do is pick up your trail sheet from the Visitor Centre on arrival for just £1.00.

Come and join us for a day in the Shropshire countryside learning about a free superfood that grows on our doorstep. We will take a walk in the morning (2miles) up into Sallow Coppice where wild garlic grows profusely at this time of year. Here we will be able to see, smell and pick some garlic for our afternoon session and look out for wildlife along the way. On our return to the Discovery Centre we will have lunch in our cafe, and then in the afternoon, we will make wild garlic pesto from the garlic we picked this morning.
