Comprising over 2000 pieces, Bristol Museum has one of the largest and most important collections of delftware in the UK. For over 100 years, Bristol was a leading manufacturer of delftware, producing objects that were exported across the globe.

Bristol Museum has been working for two years on a project funded by Arts Council England to research and re-display its collection of English delftware.

In celebration of the project, this two-day symposium will bring together specialists from around the world. They will share insights into delftware from Bristol and beyond and explore the latest international research in the field of delftware studies.

There will also be an opportunity to visit the new displays and to see a selection of objects from our reserve collection.

Speakers

We will be joined by an array of experts including Karin Walton, Matthew Winterbottom, Ian Betts, Dr Caroline McCaffrey-Howarth, Peter Francis, Femke Diercks, Roger Massey, David Dawson, Dr Oliver Kent and Amanda Lange.
