This week we had the pleasure of working with Clifton Primary School in Birmingham, Badsey First School near Evesham, Lillian de Lissa Nursery School in Birmingham, St Francis Xavier Primary from Hereford, and Gorse Hill Primary, Worcester – phew!

Whilst I was out and about being the Flying Potter, Sarah and Gemma delivered a variety of workshop sessions here at the studio in Eastnor.
Here are a few images from this busy, busy, hot and sticky week!
Just a few of the 90 year 3 children Jon worked with at Clifton Primary on Monday.

Funky Fruit and Veg made by years 5 and 6 at Badsey First School. The children are studying their local ‘Vale of Evesham’ environment.

Model village!
Sarah and Gemma worked with year 2 from St Francis Xavier Primary School at Eastnor Pottery HQ – fabulous fire of London inspired clay houses – drying in the sun.

What better way to bond together a freshly formed team of marketing professionals than with mud!
Helen Forbes (Senior Category Insight Manager for Carlsberg), brought her colleagues to Eastnor Pottery, for a three hour teambuilding session. The group spent time making a collaborative pot, decorating the surface with self portraits and items symbolising their unique attributes and occupational contribution to the new team.

 

 

As the group was relatively small (6 people), everybody was assigned a potter’s wheel for the afternoon, and spent the remainder of the session perfecting their technique.

 

A fantastic and rewarding time was had by all: “I’ll be recommending you to everyone I can think of in the corporate world. We all need more mud in our lives “,commented Helen later.
