Elliot celebrated his birthday at Eastnor Pottery by making and painting clay dragonsIf we were ever to introduce a loyalty card we’d have to present one to Elliot’s and Louisa’s families! Cant seem to keep them away from the delights of working with clay.

This time the gang celebrated Elliot’s birthday with an intimate gathering of family and friends. They made and painted colourful pinch pot creatures nestled inside coil pot homes.

Details of our children’s birthday party workshops.

Al and his lovely family spent anafternoon at the Pottery making this wonderful collaborative plant potWe’re loving this collaborative gem that emerged from the kiln last week. Al and his family spent an afternoon coiling the pot before adding ‘Al’ inspired models and stuff to the surface – all to commemorate his birthday.

Terracotta Pottery sign made by Erika on her work experience last year at Eastnor Pottery

Back in november Erika & Lucus spent a couple of days at the Pottery as part of an overseas study trip. They assisted with a weekend workshop and created this terracotta sign for our garden gate. A nice little legacy of their stay in Eastnor.

Creative youngster Eliza has always wanted to have a go on the potter's wheelEliza has always loved making things and has a fine collection of models and figures she has fashioned from coloured modelling clay. In the Easter holidays mum booked her in for a go on the potter’s wheel which she took to like a duck to water.

rachel and carla try their hand at making pottery at eastnor pottery and the flying potter herefordshireWe’ve recently increased the range and scale of pots you can make on the potter’s wheel.

Carla and Rachel both went in at the deep end and wrestled with a large lump big enough to make a cereal bowl…and a mighty fine job they made of it too. Well done you two!
