Islamic Ceramics at the British Museum

As you may have heard, Dr Venetia Porter has invited CCGG members to meet her at the British Museum London to look at Islamic tiles and pottery from the museums reserve collection. There has been a change of date for this event; it is now Weds 12th January 2011. We will meet Venetia Porter for a behind the scenes look at ceramics from the collection. There is no entry cost, but you need to make your own way to London and meet as a group on British Museum entrance steps, Great Russell Street at 12.45p.m. Weds12th January. We will be with Venetia from 1p.m. - 3p.m. and have the unique opportunity to look at, and examine at first hand Islamic ceramics from the BM collection, some not usually displayed. (The new Gallery of the Craft Potters Association , 63, Great Russell St should be open by then, which could be well worth a visit too, while there)
To book a place, email or leave a phone message with Danka Napiorkowska 01840 213308  (visit limited to 8 people).
