Valentine’s (or Galentine’s!) Day Event: Pottery Painting, Shards and Chardonnay

Dates: 15th February

Times: 6pm – 8pm

Location: Medieval Museum


Pottery Painting, Shards and Chardonnay

Join us this February for a unique evening at the Medieval Museum. Celebrate Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s!) in style as we enjoy wine and pottery painting. Waterford is a city with a long connection to the wine trade and many pieces from our collection of medieval pottery were once wine jugs. Medieval wine jugs were heavily decorated and beautifully coloured items, emblematic of the luxury trade they represented. During this workshop you’ll create your own exotic piece, painted to your liking.

This unique workshop also comes with a twist, as part of your evening you’ll be given the opportunity to handle real medieval pottery, press your fingers against the fingerprints of the past and hold history in your hands.

Guests will be provided with two glasses of wine (with non-alcoholic options available) and a full kit including a pottery wine mug. Finished pieces will be fired in a kiln to preserve your artwork and we’ll let you know as soon as they’re ready to be collected. No design is too simple or too complicated, the event is beginner friendly and just about having fun.

So come along, have fun, make memories and your own keepsake wine mug to remind you of a Valentine’s to remember!
