Community arts apprentice Immy helping a girl make a pot on the potter's wheel

We are delighted to announce details of our fun and creative children’s pottery workshop sessions for the Easter Holiday.

The great British breakfast provides the inspiration and participants make a plate on the potter’s wheel and then fill it with modelled clay bangers, bacon and eggs!

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

Community arts apprentices Aimee and Immy at Eastnro PotteryWe are delighted at how well Aimee and Immy have settled into life here at Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter. In fact the pair are positively flying!

As well as all the wedging, fettling, kiln packing and cleaning, the girls have become very proficient at making pots on the potter’s wheel. So much so we haven’t had any hesitation in letting them share their new found talents with customers of all ages and abilities.

Our lovely community arts apprentices Aimme and Immy working with Sarah on the final touches of a stunning tile panel made by children, parents and staff at Washwood Heath Nursery School in Birmingham.

Although the practical sessions are of paramount importance and integral to our practice, it’s worth pointing out the value of preparation and after-care we attach to every project.

We reckon for every minute spent working with somebody hands-on, there is at least a minute of preparation and after-care.

This collaboration will be hung on the outside wall of the new Clover Lea Annex building designed for the provision of the under 2’s.
