More hen party creativity

Hen party pottery fun in the Herefordshire sunshineThe hen who organised this pottery hen party was determined to work with clay. The bride to be is a creative soul with past experience of working with the mucky stuff and chief organiser Lucy reckoned a pottery session at Eastnor would be the perfect solution.

The girls had great fun making coil pot constructions and taking turns on several potter’s wheels we’d prepared for their visit.

Here’s a link to other hen party groups who have enjoyed getting creative with clay as part of their hen party activities.

Ivington Minotaur and friends

Terracotta totem pole made by Herefordshire Primary School and Eastnro Pottery & the Flying PotterIvington Primary School near Leominster worked collaboratively with Jon the Potter to make terracotta artwork to be installed in the school later on in the Summer term.

Class 1 made a Hungry caterpillar, class 2 made a dragon, class 3 a totem pole and class 4 greek myths and legends.

Here are the finished, fired terracotta results.

Masters House Monsters

Terracotta beastie made by families at the opening event at The Masters House Ledbury Herefordshire workshops led by potters Sarah and Lottie from Eastnor PotteryHere’s the wonderful terracotta outcome of a short series of workshops held at the newly renovated Masters House in the market town of Ledbury Herefordshire.

Sarah and Lottie spent three consecutive Saturdays earlier this year working with families to mark the opening of the Masters House after the renovation.

The art work will be installed in the flowerbeds outside the building with plants and herbs growing up and around the structures.
