Last day at the Castle – Thurs 29 July

It only seems like yesterday we were unloading the van and populating the yurt with all our tools and equipment – now it’s time to pack it all up again.
Thankyou to all who participated in our drop-in workshops – you really did produce some ugly work!
Once it’s all been fired we’ll display the gargoyle pots & planters in the window of Priory Cleaners in the centre of Ledbury – probably around late sept/oct time.
Those of you who visited the Castle from afar, please join our facebook page, follow us on http://twitter.com/eastnorpottery or email admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk to join our datadase.
Do any of the above and we’ll give you the nod when we’ve published photos of the finished, fired pieces.

Discovery pot offerings no4 & 5 at Eastnor Castle

Disappointing news – We had no less than three of our little lidded pots stolen from their hiding places during wed opening hours…(what!)
If you saw anybody struggling under the weight of a bulging rucksack at closing time on Wednesday at the Castle, please get in contact! admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk
In the remaining nine pots we discovered these little goodies.

Arrow Vale High School Comments

We always ask our clients and customers for their feedback following a workshop or event. We regularly send out an evaluation questionnaire asking if the project lived up to expectations etc. Here’s a recent response from Arrow Vale High School in Redditch (see the blog titled ‘Mud Sofa’) http://eastnorpottery.blogspot.com/2010_06_01_archive.html)

“The amount achieved by the students was excellent, we have had a variety of positive feedback, the highlight for the students being adding the mud mixture to the structure.”

“Your relationship with students was excellent, relaxed but focused, securing the attention and enthusiasm for the experience.”
