Although we are not able to wander too far from home at the moment, there will come a time when we can.

Herefordshire is such a beautiful county to visit at any time of the year…. but we think it looks extra picturesque in the snow.

We hope to be sharing our gorgeous county with you again soon.

But please don’t fret! As soon as we are able to commence our fantastic pottery experiences and potter’s wheel courses, we’ll let you know right here on the Eastnor Pottery website.

All courses and experiences for January and the majority of February 2021 have been postponed.

All our own gift vouchers and those purchased from our lovely partners will be extended.

If you have booked a session or purchased a voucher we will honour your commitment to us.  It doesn’t matter how long it takes, your pottery experience will be here ready and waiting for you.

For those of you who managed to visit us before Christmas, we are still processing your brilliant pottery. It may take a little longer than usual, but as soon as your creations have emerged from the kiln we’ll drop you an email to let you know they are ready for collection. If you have purchased Post and Packaging, we’ll let you know when your masterpieces have been dispatched.

We look forward to welcoming you back. In the meantime, stay safe and well.

Much love

Jon and Sarah xx
