We love our customers just as much as they love their Pottery Experience.

Here are a few reviews penned by some of our satisfied visitors this Autumn:

“Potter’s Wheel Experience was just what I was looking for. The setting was warm, homely, relaxing and zen. Everybody working there couldn’t have been nicer, frequently topping up teas and coffees. And Jon was an excellent tutor, not too hands on but there to assist when required” Tomas Nov 2019

“Jon and Sarah were wonderful and they really conveyed their passion for pottery. We came away with two completely different pots and both thoroughly enjoyed the session. Would highly recommend this workshop!” Sidney Nov 2019

“We did this experience as a surprise treat for a 70th birthday – it was a fun and interesting experience which went down very well. Our teachers demonstrated and explained very well the process of making a pot on a wheel and then glazing it. We were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed it.Peter Nov 2019
“It was an absolute pleasure to come to Eastnor pottery. The location is amazing and is very easy to find. The place it self is very cozy and comfortable. We were welcomed warmly by the team that was very passionate about what they do which very much rubs off on you when it’s your turn to do pottery. Sarah was absolutely fantastic teaching us the basics of pottery and your never left on your own. We left so thrilled and relaxed from our experience, and it’s all down to a brilliant team of happy people. Thank you very much” Alex and Becca Oct 2019

“Such a beautiful location and lovely people. So homely and welcoming we can’t wait to book again!” Cheryl Oct 2019

happy pottery experience participants“Sarah hosted our small group of 4, where 2 of the group were birthday girls and it was so much fun! We each took a turn at the wheel and Sarah was very helpful and encouraging, as a talented ceramicist herself, at helping get the best bowl, vase, candle holder or cup. After that we painted our creations and the range of colours was great. We can’t wait for our finished products to be sent to us in the post. We really had the best time and will definitely go again!” Guy & Kate Oct 2019
Thank you to all you 2019 potter’s who took the time to review us – we love you!

Did you know that clay is infinitely recyclable? It’s been on the earth some 66 million years drying out and re-hydrating unchanged in nature. It’s only when it’s fired in the kiln it makes an irreversible change. Pottery or ceramic is probably one of the most permanent and durable materials known to man. Once they are out the kiln, they are out there forever!

It’s one of the reasons we ask our one day and weekend potter’s wheel course participants to be selective of their freshly made booty. At the end of the workshop, participants get to choose up to three creations to be fired and glazed. Surplus pots are ceremonially plucked from their resting places for recycling.

Must say it’s not very often we get such a neat pile of rejected pots! #neatlyfolded

Turns out agricultural recruitment agents make for brilliant potters too!

As well as creating some mighty fine pots on the wheel, the group made a magnificent collaborative piece decorated in an agricultural style with modeled sheep, wheat and farmers!

The individual pots made on the potter’s wheel came alive in the last hour of the workshop as participants used their imagination and coloured underglazes to great effect.

Here’s what lead contact Caroline thought of the activity:

“I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for hosting the team yesterday – everyone had a fantastic time. Judging by the chatter in the office this morning, I think we even have a few who are eager to have another crack at it!

The set up you guys have down there is really impressive and especially the way you were able to lead the group through the process so everyone progressed at the same rate – it was all just really well put together, and all in all a great day out for the team.”

Thanks Caroline :)

Once sides were well and truly split, the girls got down to some competent pot making and delightful painting, producing a fine collection of wheel thrown pots.

So much fun, such a lovely afternoon :) Thanks for coming Molly & co.
