New IAVG Project – Craven Dunnill Tile Moulds

We’ve had a busy morning so far today as half a dozen volunteers and myself started to pack up a rather large collection of tile moulds from the Craven Dunnill tile works that were excavated during renovations to the Jackfield Tile Museum back in 2004. These moulds, which we’ve now packed up very carefully, are going to be transported to Coalbrookdale so that we can start to record and catalogue the various designs over the next couple of months. There are some really interesting designs and it will be a great chance for the volunteers to learn about finds recording and photographing, creating a catalogue, illustration and eventually putting together a short article on their findings that we could look to get published. Its really exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
