So so busy towards the back end of the Summer term we didn’t get the chance to publish some of the amazing pottery projects we undertook with schools and early year’s settings, in and around the West Midlands. Here are a couple of examples:
King Edward VI School Aston in Birmingham held their Festival of Cultures event on the 3rd July 2015. We worked with groups of boys enabling them to realize some of their creative aspirations in clay.
Elmley Castle First School near Evesham Worcester invited Jon the Potter to work with the children to make a collaborative 3D clay sculpture based upon their natural environment and personal interests.
Eastnor Pottery has been awash with hen parties this summer, and the potter’s wheel is just one of many projects we offer our groups of girls. These guys had a great time working with the clay and made some fantastic pieces!
Had a lovely day at Bilston Craft Gallery at their annual garden party event. Not actually working with clay on this occasion but selling exhibits from my hugely successful touring Sensational Clay exhibition.
Steve Edwards a West Midlands basd graffiti artist was also present, adding a vibrant and colourful aspect to proceedings.
I still have a few pieces left if anybody is interested in purchasing a Jon Williams original at a discount price. Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
“It sounds like stars – falling from the sky!”
Early Hurly Burly is an amazing music and early year’s project that’s been taking place in libraries across x9 Counties. We’ve been privileged to be involved in this innovative venture offering music inspired clay sessions for youngsters and their parents in Worcestershire and Herefordshire libraries.
The sessions have been organic in nature progressing in directions inspired and driven by the participants. We’ve been singing, moving and making clay objects with children as young as 18 months – worms, biscuits and other clay culinary delights inspired by familiar nursery rhymes and songs. Great fun!
Very pleased to be working again with Cinnamon Active Events based in Surrey. Looking back it’s been near on 10 years since we first hooked up with the guys, supplying them with novel and creative team pottery events for their prestigious client base.
Lottie and myself set up The Flying Potter mobile studio in a conference room at The Sunningdale Vere Hotel, enabling a corporate group to collaborate and produce a coat of arms inspired by organisation’s values and ethos.
Here’s a brief bit of feedback from the client.
“Would you please pass on our ‘thanks’ to all whom helped organise the event for us yesterday & in particular to our facilitators on the day, Jon & Lottie. It was a great activity & we have had some lovely feedback & look forward to receiving the completed items once baked/glazed.”
