Family Group visit Eastnor Pottery learning to throw on the wheelWe have definately seen an increase in adult family groups choosing pottery as an excuse for a novel and creative intergenerational get together. Mums & Dads have been treating their grown-up offspring  just as much as the kids have been indulging their parents.

The groups have so much fun and enjoyment they regularly review their Eastnor Pottery experience on TripAdvisor. Here are some recent testimonials:

‘COME & TRY What a wonderfully relaxing experience. 7 adults made 20 or so pots on the wheel. Jon was the perfect teacher for us as mostly novices – teaching and encouraging with a fine sense of humour. He was very welcoming to our toddler and found him several sensory experiences to explore. The Pottery was lovely and warm. A bonus was that we never felt rushed – time stood still and in a month we’ll have our glazed masterpieces to prove our new found skills.’

‘FANTASTIC FAMILY FUN As a Christmas present, I treated my mother, sister and aunty as well as myself to a two day pottery course. Although at a hefty £215 per person, it was well worth every penny! Jon, the owner and teacher for the weekend was more than welcoming, very patient and a great host. Everybody gets there own potters wheel to work on and Jon guides you through each process over the two days. At the end, we were all allowed to keep upto 4 pots that are posted to you once fired. I highly recommend it as a group experience, fancy treat or a solo venture!’

‘A SUPERB FAMILY DAY ON THE POTTERS WHEEL A fantastic family day learning how to throw a pot upon the potters wheel. Jon Williams and his team were so welcoming. Ethan was fantastic and so knowledgeable, he worked with us throughout our experience, introducing us to the potters wheel and guiding us with extreme patience through the ‘how to’ on the wheel….every tip and technique for beginners was shared and really well communicated and so, our lumps of clay soon turned into pots (ok, so my hubby’s gained a lip and took on the master shape of a jug…an intentional design so he says!). We were so lucky to have received this experience as a Christmas gift voucher but we’ll definitely be visiting again in the future, in fact my daughter’s heading back with a group of friends for her 12th birthday party!’
