We launched a brand new potters wheel workshop option at the beginning of the year. Basically, small groups can hire a wheel between two participants and take turns to make pots for an hour and a half.
The first customers to take us up on the offer visited the studio to celebrate a 50th Birthday. Three couples had great fun making shapes and watching each other spin wet clay.

20 very excited young pottery enthusiasts decended on the studio on Saturday to celebrate their friend’s special day. The girls and boys made and painted colourful critters out of soft clay before enjoying a picnic in the Pottery garden – YES! there was enough warmth in the early March sunshine to warrent a feast outside on the picnic benches. First of the season HURRAH!
If you would like to celebrate your birthday at Eastnor Pottery then more details can be found right here.

Forest school Andy has been constructing a fabulous mud kitchen in the playground at Washwood Heath Nursery School in Birmingham. One of the children decided it would be a fantastic idea to make some terracotta artwork to tile the splash back area. So, thats just what we did! We ended up making 40 or so individual tiles decorated in the children’s models and drawing.
Washwood Heath have a super new website to.
Loving the expression of enjoyment on the face of this young lady who popped by the studio recently.
Ever since seeing the potter’s wheel on the t.v, it had become one of those things she’d always wanted to do.
Grandad took the initiative and booked a drop-in potter’s wheel as a Christmas present for the lucky youngster. The whole family turned out to see her make a fabulous pot on the wheel. Good work Grandad!
