If you worked in Arklow Pottery or Noritake over the years here’s and event that may interest you. The ‘Arklow Pottery Online’ project team are woking on creating a digital database of patterns and backstamps, and oral history record, with thanks to funding from the Heritage Council. They would love to hear from ex-workers about either their work, techniques and skills in different departments, or the social side of things !
Are there any couples out there who met in Arklow Pottery?
Do you know alot about the economic impact of the pottery being based here and the effect of its closure?
Maybe you can tell about working conditions? Could you demonstrate your decorating skills?
Take a ‘Trip Down Memory Lane’ with the project team project team next Thursday 26th May 2022, 2pm to 4pm in Arklow Library. They will be showing old photos and trying to identify people in them with your help. There’ll be old Pottery magazines and memorabilia to view, over a cup of tea and a chat.
