The majority of groups and individuals who attend our pottery workshops in the Summer admire the beauty of our rural Herefordshire location – the sun always seems to shine in Eastnor! However, it looks pretty good in the snow too! Here’s a selection of photos from the recent cold snap.
Love this clay pizza made by a particularly creative 4 year old at Ledbury Primary School. Over the next six weeks we’re going to be exploring language, communication and building relationships via the magnificant medium of clay…oh yeah, and having a lot of fun too. Parents and carers are invited to join their children as they grapple with the potter’s wheel, coil-pot and slab building techniques.
Isla selected ‘Funky fruit’ from our list of clay projects for her pottery birthday party session.
Here she is, with a little help from dad, in the prelimery stages of creating a hollow banana. Probably the most litteral interpretation of ‘thumb pot’ we’ve ever seen!

Each figure has been worked on by three students, each child making either a head, torso or legs. I took the body parts away and joined them in random fashion creating an army of fantastical creatures and hybrids – think of the drawing game consequences…but in 3d…made out of clay and you’ll get the idea.
