“Tiles and Terracotta in Bournemouth”
By Jo Amey “The Tile Lady”
A guided walk looking at the wide variety of tiles and other ceramics, “hidden away” on Bournemouth’s buildings. From the Victorian era onwards they were decorated with products from both local manufacturers such as Carters’ but also include William Morris, Wedgewood and Royal Doulton.
Jo studied ceramics and environmental design at Bournemouth’s Lansdowne College. For her thesis she decided to focus on the decoration on the surrounding buildings, from this she developed a life-long passion. As well as walks and talks Jo also makes individual stoneware plaques to order.
