box of delights pottery lessons for children at eastnor pottery in the school holidaysLewis, one of our youngest regulars at our children’s pottery sessions has a thing for the colour blue. (Who can forget ‘blue’ santa from this time last year – man, he was swimming in the stuff!)

It was great to see him in the Pottery again on our ‘Box of Delights’ children’s workshop sessions this week. Having constucted a lidded pot using the slab technique it was time to paint his masterpiece…I guess there was always only going to be one effect Lewis had in mind! Loving the sticky out tongue – evidence of proper concentration.

Our next children’s pottery workshop sessions take place in 1/2 term 20 & 21 Feb and include a go on the potter’s wheel. Please contact the Pottery to reserve your place admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk or tel 01531 633886. More details can be found here.

the flying potter worked with the outdoor team at hillier gardens romseyJust a few days before the Christmas holidays proper got under way, Gemma and myself headed on down to Hillier Gardens in Hampshire to work with this lovely lot!

West Midlands based events company Eventurous brought us all together, the clients having a team meeting in the morning followed by lunch and an afternoon of potter’s wheel fun and collaborative clay work.

Hidden creative talents were revealed as the employees produced x4 desktop totems, rich with organisation symbolism and aspiration.

Once the totems have been fired and glazed they will be couriered to HQ to serve as a permanent reminder of what can be achieved through collaborative working.

Please follow this link to see some of the snapshots we took on the day.
