couple make pottery together at eastnor pottery

Did you know Pottery is the traditional 9th Wedding Anniversary gift? A lot of couples who visit us certainly do. Rather than purchasing a piece of Denby, increasing numbers of clayed-up couples are inspired to create a pottery masterpiece for each other.

As well as fashioning a ceramic keepsake, participants are also making memories. Jon, Sarah and all the Pottery team strive to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, perfect for catching-up, unwinding and getting the creative juices flowing. The expert guidance and positive facilitation enable you to thrive and create that ‘special’ piece.

Partners come from far and wide to fashion their loved one a commemorative vessel often spending a couple of days in the Shire. Not only do they get creative with clay at the Pottery, couples often spend a romantic weekend visiting other local attractions and restaurants.

Once the creations have been fired and glazed, the pottery ‘artyfacts’ can either be collected from the studio or posted out approx. one month later. Each piece serving as a permanent reminder of time spent together doing something creative and ultimately rewarding.

Here’s what a satisfied customer had to say about their making experience at Eastnor Pottery:

Wheel of fortune a delight!

My husband and I decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary by throwing a pot each and Sarah and the team at Eastnor Pottery ensured that it wasn’t at each other! My husband, slightly dubious at first, discovered a slumbering artistic talent and we had a fabulous time. I couldn’t rate this highly enough, great coffee, lovely, talented tutor, wonderful studio, and hopefully (in a few weeks when we collect them) amazing pots. THANK YOU”
