group of work colleagues do a pottery team building activity at eastnor pottery herefordshire

We’ve facilitated some pretty epic team building events in the past, often working with hundreds of participants in a day in venues all over the country. Check out our Flying Potter activities.

Things are a little different in the pandemic and when we can welcome businesses and organisations to the Pottery, the groups may be small, but the quality is HUGE!!!

Smaller participant numbers make for an intimate and meaningful experience with participants reporting comradery and improved communication when they return to the workplace.

We’d just like to say a whopper THANK YOU to all our beautiful customers who visited us in this unprecedented and crazy year. Without a doubt, it’s been complicated and challenging doing anything in 2020, so you all deserve a medal, you really do!

From our socially distanced perspective, we’ve enjoyed working with each and everyone of you.  Even though we cant see those fabulous smiles behind the face coverings, we’ve felt the love and positive vibes.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Eastnor Pottery in 2021 and are forever grateful for your patronage and support. In the meantime, you can book your New Year pottery experience online or purchase gift vouchers anytime, day and night from our website.

Last year, our friends at Roger Oats Designs purchased Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel pottery experiences as Christmas presents for all their staff. What a lovely, thoughtful idea!

What with Covid-19 and everything, its taken a while for the team to access their presents. We’re pleased to report on a sunny Thursday in October, the gang finally made the short journey to Eastnor Pottery to spin some mud and have lots of fun.

The staff visited in groups of x4 and were treated to a potter’s wheel demonstration before taking turns to make pots. As you’d expect from such a creative bunch the results were pretty amazing with a variety of shapes and forms.

D3 Active hired The Flying Potter to provide pottery sessions to run alongside an impressive carousel of other teambuilding activities at a large scale event in Oxfordshire.

We worked with approx 120 employees in 1 hour long rotational groups of 30 people. It was a fun and creative day and everybody who participated made an individual ceramic sculpture.

The soft clay masterpieces were then transported back to Eastnor Pottery HQ, dried, fired and returned to the client to be treasured as a permanent reminder of a fantastic team event.

If you are looking for a creative teambuilding activity or a unique way to reward your workforce then please take a look at our teambuilding projects and away day opportunities. You can visit us at our studio on the beautiful Eastnor Castle Estate or we are very happy to deliver the Eastnor Pottery experience at a venue of your choosing.
