Josiah Wedgwood was a pioneering English potter and British entrepreneur, and an influential radical campaigner. Join historian and V&A Director Tristram Hunt online for an exploration of the remarkable life of the man he calls 'the Steve Jobs of the eighteenth century', many of whose works are in the V&A collection. The talk will be held in conjunction with the publication of Hunt’s new biography, 'The Radical Potter'.
This live stream will be via Zoom and all ticket holders will receive a link to join on the morning of the event.
