Abstract or Description:

The Materials Library explores the science of ceramics at the Victoria & Albert Museum in celebration of the opening of the new Ceramics Galleries. From super sharp knives to superconductor levitation; catalytic converters to tiles of aluminium nitride that conduct the heat from one’s hand so efficiently they will cut ice like butter: experience some of the modern wonders of the ceramic world.

And what is it about ceramics that makes for the perfect cup of tea? Join us for an experiment where you will be invited to taste tea out of cups of different materials under the supervision of Master tea taster Henrietta Lovell from the award winning Rare Tea Company.

A wide range of other ceramic related activities (non Materials Library) will be on throughout the museum during the course of the evening.
