Learning resource - Fragile? exhibition

National Museum Cardiff

Fragile? is an exhibition about ceramics. Ceramics are objects that are made out of clay and then fired. We often think of those objects as being fragile, but this exhibition challenges that idea as well as giving us an insight into the different kinds of ceramics being made today.

This learning resource is designed to support teachers and educators. It includes support in planning a visit, exploring the exhibition and suggestions for things to do back in the classroom. It is primarily aimed at Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils but can be easily adapted for older or younger students.

This resource is supported by the Colwinston Charitable Trust

Dates: 18 April - 4 October 2015
Cost: Free of charge as is a self-led session.
