HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

We sold soooo many potter’s wheel experience gift vouchers in the lead up to Christmas, Santa must have had to put in for over time delivering to all the lucky recipients.

If you did receive one, we recommend you book your session in as soon as humanly possible as availability is being snapped up at a rate of knots!

Just navigate to our home page, scroll down until you get to the orange redeem a gift voucher button and then it should be straight forward from then on in. You will need your voucher code so have it ready when you log on.

We are aware there are a few of you out there who didn’t receive a pottery experience this Christmas. Boooooo! :( BUT remember one of our gift vouchers makes for a wonderful birthday present! ;)

Good luck everybody and we look forward to welcoming you to Eastnor Pottery in 2022.

We loved collaborating with these guys to make a stunning terracotta planter to commemorate Jeanette’s mum’s 70th birthday.

Three generations gathered at the Pottery to build, from scratch, a giant pot using the coiling technique. Once the surface had been smoothed off, the family set about making little clay models to decorate the surface – each clay model related to or referenced a story about the birthday girl. The end result, an encrusted and unique masterpiece that will look absolutely fabulous planted up and displayed in the garden or conservatory.

Family Pottery Fun in ½ term

HALF TERM HEDGEHOGS

26th & 27th October 2021

We’re delighted to announce details of our fun pottery sessions for families in the rapidly approaching October ½ term holiday.

Hedgehogs provide the inspiration for the autumnal clay fueled creativity.

Participants of all ages and abilities will each make a terracotta hedgehog using the hand modelling pinch-pot technique. They will also be encouraged to paint their creations with a creamy white slip – perfect for scratching through to reveal the raw terracotta clay underneath. Connoisseurs of the clay arts will know this technique as sgraffito, a very satisfying and fun method of pottery decoration.

The hedgehogs will be fired, glazed and ready for collection from the Pottery one month later. Don’t worry if you are unable to collect, P+P is available at £5 per item.

1.5 hr sessions commence at 9.30am, 11.30am and 2pm and cost £20 per person. Under 12’s must be accompanied by at least one fee paying adult. Places can be booked online by visiting our website page dedicated to clay modelling (scroll down to the orange button!) or calling 01531 633886.

Just before the end of term we helped Yr 5&6 at Redmarley Primary School make a lovely collaborative pot. The students also made individual ‘Memory’ coil pots to remind themselves of their time spent at primary school.clay pot dcorated with 3D faces and coil clay pots in the background
