National Museum Wales holds pottery workshops in Cardiff during the year. That in the autumn of 2018 will be working on Roman samian stamps from Wales and on plain samian from various Welsh sites. An enthusiasm for Roman pottery and a willingness to learn are the main requirements, rather than any specific knowledge of pottery. The first meeting will include an introduction to samian and the projects.
