Creative hens

Pottery hen party for hens of all agesSpent a lovey afternoon in the company of these creative ladies as part of their hen party celebrations.

The majority of the participants had attended art school and had careers in the creative industries – so really appreciated and enjoyed the creative atmosphere of the artists studio.

Christmas present redeemed

Son buys mum & dad a creative potter's wheel family workshopSix months ago in the depths of Winter, Simon booked a potter’s wheel session as a Christmas present for his family. May seemed a long way off and a long time to wait to sample the delights of Eastnor Pottery. But here we are, all of a sudden like, on a lovely sunny morning – eight participants, four wheels and lots of fabulous, freshly thrown pots!

See the potter’s in action here.

Work experience at Eastnor Pottery

A few weeks ago we were Joined by a motivated and creative Yr10 student from the Chase High School in Malvern.

She got to assist with hands on sessions with the public, designed a promotional poster for our forthcoming 1/2 term childrens workshops and made this fabulous Mushroom sculpture. There was even opportunity to spend an afternoon on the potter’s wheel.
