NFU working the clay

Clay tiles made at eastnor pottery by nfu west midlands as a team building exerciseNo less than five counties, agricultural speaking were represented at Eastnor Pottery on Monday.

The West Midlands region of The National Farmers Union took turns on the potter’s wheel and made a fantastic coat of arms depicting agricultural aspects of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.

Once the crest has been fired, glazed and mounted it will hang in the organisation’s office in Telford, serving as a permanent and creative reminder of their team day at Eastnor Pottery.

‘Making’ the Christmas office party.

Birthday celebrations at Eastnor PotteryJudging by all the banners appearing outside restaurants and adverts in the local press, we thought it was high time to throw our hat into the ‘Christmas office party’ ring!

For the past 20 years we’ve been hosting Christmas get-together s for businesses and organisations keen to try a novel and creative alternative to the pub meal.

For as little as £15 per head you can experience the delights of modelling and painting soft clay. An extra £10 will enable party goers to take a spin on the potter’s wheel.

Complementary fresh coffee, tea and biscuits are standard, although a lot of our groups prefer to bring alcoholic refreshments and their own nibbles and eats.

So, if you are looking for that stand out Christmas party activity for your workmates and colleagues, then give us a call on 01531 633886 or email admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

We are open 10am – 4pm Tues – Sat but are more than willing to open up in the evening for groups of x6 or more participants.

The Enormous Turnip

As October half term rapidly approaches, we are delighted to announce details of our fun and creative children’s pottery workshop sessions planned for Wednesday 25th October.

The tale of the Enormous Turnip will provide the autumnal inspiration with participants each taking a turn on the potter’s wheel to make a trug for their root vegetable.

Instead of pulling handles, the children will ‘pull’ turnips from the earth! ;)

One at a time, they will sample the delights of the potter’s wheel, taking their little pot back to the table to be filled with hand-modelled Autumnal fare.

The children will be using terracotta clay and their fired creations will be ready for collection from the Pottery approx. one month later.

Sessions are designed for two age groups although younger and older siblings will never be turned away: 11.30am-1pm 4-8YRS and 2-3.30pm 9-12YRS. Places cost £15 per child with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone or email booking essential. 01531 633886 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk
