Discover a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes at the Emma Bridgewater factory, giving you a genuine insight into the work that goes into producing the beautiful pieces.


There will be ghoulish goings on at the Emma Bridgewater Factory during October Half Term 2016.

Children and adults can get creative in the decorating studio and use the spooky sponges to decorate a Halloween themed masterpiece of their own. Throughout the holidays, book any weekday early bird 9.30 am decorating studio slot to create your own 1/2 pint mug for just £10.00 (usual cost £15).

Come in your creepiest costume and follow the special pumpkin treasure trail around the factory for an opportunity to win a prize. Join a factory tour to find out how the iconic Emma Bridgewater ceramic pieces are made.

Afterwards enjoy some delicious pumpkin treats in the cafe and don't forget to visit the on-site gift shop and outlet store.
