Once these ladies had been shown the pinch pot demo there was no ceiling on their inspiration and ideas.
They collaboratively settled on making a clutch of hens for the bride to be, each one an individual masterpiece echoing the maker’s own personality.
We got the impression the ceramic hens would be displayed on the tables at the wedding reception making for some excellent centre pieces and conversational talking points!

Although I’m a regular visitor to Washwood Heath Nursery School in Birmingham, I’m delighted when groups from the School come and work with me on the Eastnor Castle Estate. So far this year we have welcomed a mini-bus full of parents and last month, staff came and learnt about clay techniques as part of their INSET.

Spent a lovely day working with YR1 and Reception at Winterfold School in Worcestershire.
The book Handa’s surprise provided the inspiration for YR1’s creations with the children making a collaborative fruit bowl filled with fruit and animals from the tale.
Reception had been looking at The Three Billy Goats Gruff and opted to make pottery trolls as well as decorating a superb pot made on the potter’s wheel. Big thanks to the staff who made me feel most welcome.
I was fortunate to sample a school dinner at lunchtime – the banana mouse a particular stand-out moment of a most enjoyable day!
Young potter’s aged 4yrs and up are invited to Eastnor Pottery on Wednesday 27th May 2015 to make a Father’s Day gift on the potter’s wheel. Each participant will create a pottery mug and then personalize it with clay additions. The pots will be fired and glazed in good time for Father’s Day on the 21st June.
There are two sessions planned – 11.30am-1pm (4-8yrs) and 2-3.30pm (9-12 yrs) but older/younger siblings will never be turned away from either session.
Places cost £15 per child with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone or email booking essential. Tel: 01531 633886 or firstname.lastname@example.org to join in with the clay fun.
