Despite the sun disappearing behind a cloud, these ceramic sun bathers at Eastnor Pottery enjoyed capturing a few kiln rays recently.
Jon worked with Bridstow Primary School at the end of the Summer term 2014 to make these individual beauties with the whole school.
Lottie and myself had so so so much fun at the 5th Just So Family Arts Festival at Rode Hall in Cheshire recently.
Once again we set up our Clay Babies stall in the Peekaboo area especially designed for the youngest festival visitor. 0-4 year olds got the opportunity to sample the potter’s wheel and messy play with bags of soft squiddgy clay.
Clay babies always makes for a good photograph and we created a photo album on our Facebook page of some of the best.
If you have a young family and have yet to experience the magic of Just So we strongly recommend a visit to next years event. The attention to detail is astounding and the team spend 12 months programming some of the best family friendly activities and productions in the country and from further afield.
Can’t wait till next year!
We love working at Eastnor Castle, offering visitors the chance to collaborate on significant clay sculptures.
In the past we’ve made knights, a castle, a dragon and even an Estate inspired totem pole.
This year, well over 1000 visitors help make x5 amazing terracotta pheasants. The birds have been constructed and are waiting to be fired. As soon as the fowl are out of the kilns we’ll photograph them and post the pics online. We’ll also exhibit them in the Dry Cleaners window in Ledbury probably around October time.
