Out on the tiles - Victorian Style
This learning journey has been devised to support a led session - 'Out on the tiles - Victorian Style', developed by Hull Museums Education.
Based at Hull & East Riding Museum, the led session will introduce students to the work of tile makers from the medieval period, culminating in the Arts & Crafts Movement and the tiles of William De Morgan.
This learning journey can be used as pre-visit activity as it will help students to appreciate the historical influences that shaped the development of Victorian tile design and prepare them for an investigative journey.
There are factsheets available for download to assist with further investigation into making methods and design styles, and teacher notes on the led session (see links under 'Worksheets' listed below).
This learning journey can be used as a resource for:
KS3 Art & Design: Unit 9B - Change your Style
KS3 Art & Design: Unit 10gen - Visiting a Museum, Gallery or site
KS2 Art & Design: Unit 3B - Investigating Pattern
