'Curious Creatures' Pottery Parcel - Natural History In The Making

I have had the honour of collaborating with The Natural History Museum to create an at-home pottery experience like no other! Bring the magic of the museum and it's wonders to you, with an exclusive kit delivered to your door and an immersive video workshop experience, designed to inspire you as you explore the museum through the tactile and relaxing medium of clay. The perfect activity for families and friends to enjoy together.

Available to order now on the NHM website:

Craft your own Museum-inspired plant pots with this exclusive online workshop and at-home kit. Take inspiration from the Museum's collection of curious creatures and create your own unique plant pot characters. Join us for a fun and relaxing virtual pottery workshop where you will be guided in bringing your ceramic creations to life.

Perhaps your pot has the nose of an aardvark, the ears of an elephant or the beak of an ostrich? Or maybe you want to keep it simple and have a pot coiled as a snake?

You will receive your Pottery Package in the post with everything you need to take part. Each kit contains enough materials for 2 potters to enjoy the experience together, or for you to make 2 museum inspired Pot Heads!

Each kit is raising funds for the Museum, who have been closed over the course of the last year - with 50% of profits going to the Natural History Museum.

- Proceeds help support the Natural History Museum. With your help we can continue to carry out pioneering research, care for our internationally important collections and inspire people to take better care of the natural world.

- As a charity The Natural History Museum relies on funding from many sources to share its remarkable collection of over 80 million specimens with the world. Your support is vital in helping the Museum, a global centre of scientific research on the natural world, combat climate change and biodiversity loss.

- The Natural History Museum strives to create advocates for the planet in everything they do, your support is now more important than ever.

- Your contribution can help in a number of ways, from digitising a specimen for climate research to freezing a bee for the collections to help funding a field trip to understand biodiversity loss, and much more.
