Trinity Court Potteries make pottery from the Iron age through to the 18th century. Our demonstrations bring to life the function and form of pottery in the hands of the people of the time, For example; A saxon funerary Urn, impressed with the thumb prints of its maker, A roman Amphora, enabling wine to be transported to empires citizens or to Tudor time a puzzle jugs being used in tavern houses. The pottery is fascinating and the craftsmanship of the potters of the past is undertaken with reverence to their skills. It i a pleasure to being these to life in our demonstrations.
