Clay in Action


Enjoy an interactive 90-minute workshop at this fascinating former factory. Explore the history of the brick and tile industry in Bridgwater and discover the global importance of clay. Tour the brick kiln area, discover the manufacturing processes and make a traditional clay tile with expert help.

Please note: tiles will be fired after your visit and can be collected approximately one month later. Please contact the learning team to arrange collection.

Because of limited space we can only accommodate one group in the Museum at any given time (maximum 35 students). School groups are welcome to come and lead a self-guided visit during the Museum’s opening hours.
