how to make a pot on the potter's wheelOnce again, a lovely mix of aspiring potter’s descended on Eastnor Pottery for a weekend of making pots on the wheel.

Saturday is always a very wet and messy affair with participants learning how to manipulate the soft clay on the wheel.

Sunday is a much ‘cleaner’ process where the pots made on day one have dried enough to be turned and decorated. The finished, fired and glazed masterpieces are delivered to your door approx. one month later…and for November’s gang, just in time for Christmas presents!

Our apprentice Ethan was on hand to take photos.

If you would like the opportunity to attend either a day or weekend dedicated to the potter’s wheel then please check out dates and contact the Pottery for availability. We currently only have a couple of spaces left on the Dec 15th 2013 but availability in the New Year is excellent. Please email to reserve a place.

    Dear Jon and all Eastnor Pottery Team!
    Thank you once again for this lovely time we spent
    on your workshop. Jon you are an amazing artist, lovely
    person and great therapist:) For me your workshop was
    like therapy. For two whole days I was thinkig just about
    how to produce smth. beautiful. And everyday issues
    dissapeared. Its not so easy done for an adult. Im hoping to enter this magical clay world
    once again. And I know for sure my adventure with clay has just begun.
    Warmest wishes!

    Thanks Renata it was a lovely weekend spent in very good company. You’re right, working with clay is extremely therapeutic and many of our workshop participants report feeling relaxed and creatively fulfilled after a weekend at Eastnor Pottery. Hope the videoed demonstration of the potter’s wheel came out ok and that it will be of use on your clay journey…oh and thanks for being such a brilliant ‘cover girl’ on our website!! Great having both you and Andy around the place & good luck with your venture x
