Emma Bridgewater Factory Tour

In a nutshell Emma Bridgewater was formed by designer Emma Bridgewater and husband Matthew together. The company designs, creates & makes home-decorated pottery within historical Stoke potteries.

Over the summer I had the chance to go on a tour with my Grandma around Emma Bridgewater's factory showing the process of every pottery made from start to finish. It was a great experience and seemed like a lovely place to work. The process for each pottery is fascinating, each worker had their own job whether it would be molding, shaping, decorating, etc the list goes on. Each piece of pottery has a small part worked on from each worker within the factory. Despite the workers working really long hours doing repetitive tasks they all enjoying being a part of this factory. 

If you ever get the chance to visit Stoke-on-Trent, I would definitely recommend this factory tour.
