Newly weds Emily and Benjamin visited the pottery in August 2020 and took part in our Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel Class.

Due to pandemic, a honeymoon abroad was out of the question so the pair enjoyed a mini-moon tour of the UK instead.

We loved creating a memory with Emily & Benjamin and the wonderful pots they made on the potter’s wheel serve as a permanent reminder of those precious first few weeks of marriage.

Arwyn and Victoria recently took part in our Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel Class.

During their visit Arwyn revealed his childhood ambition of becoming a potter! He was initially inspired by a Welsh  speaking TV programme called ‘Pury-Di-Purely’ which translates as ‘Who’s Who’. Contestants on the game show had to guess the occupation of each other. One of the episodes featured a potter who at some point in proceedings demonstrated his skill and threw a pot on the wheel. The young Arwyn was transfixed and up until his visit to Eastnor Pottery, had never had the opportunity to try the potter’s wheel.

As you can see by his commendable efforts – a career in studio pottery beckons!

We ask our guests to bring an apron or at least wear old clothes when they join us for a course or class. Although the clay is unlikely to stain, customers can get a little splattered – glad rags are definitely out of the question! It’s always interesting to see the variety and interpretation inspired by our ‘dress code’ …best one has to be the dressing gown last year!
Alternatively, you can hire an apron & towel from us for just £5
