Recreating Nantgarw porcelain

Charles Fountain at Nantgarw Chinaworks Museum, Wales

Every donation through Art Happens brings the campaign closer to its goal. Plus, thanks to a generous supporter, donations to the Together for Museums campaign from from 21 January will be matched pound for pound, doubling their impact.

As a thank you for your donation, choose an exclusive reward inspired by the project and created by the people involved – and take your very own piece of the campaign away with you. Or help to spread the word by giving your bespoke reward as a gift. Your good deed, done.

If you would prefer to donate without receiving a reward, you can select that option below.

Please note: Rewards are bespoke. Our artists and suppliers will be working safely in line with Covid guidelines to produce your reward. This means there may be a bit of a wait, but we will be working to realise and deliver your reward as quickly as possible and will keep you up to date by email.

Any questions or need help donating? Contact us on 0203 757 9772 or email our Supporter Services team.
