The delightful Spring sunshine was matched by an equally delightful hen party group who visited the Pottery a little while ago. 17 girls and a fella made some beautifully designed and painted coil pots as well as taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.
After the clay had been cleaned away and the tables sponged down, the girls picnicked into the afternoon, proclaiming the day a blooming success.
Here’s what the had to say about their pottery hen party experience:
“What a wonderful place this is! We went for my friends hen party with 17 ladies (and a man!). Jon made the whole afternoon fun and entertaining. We did coil pots and a taster on the wheel each which was spot on for what we wanted.
It’s the above and beyond elements that make this place so special. Nothing was too much trouble and we ran over time and were still allowed to use the beautiful marquee for our picnic afterwards. Tea and coffee was also provided for the afternoon.
Can not rate this place highly enough thanks everyone! ” Tess
We’ve entertained some lovely family adult groups of late. Karen and her grown-up children spent the whole day making pots on the kick wheels and hand- building coil pots whilst Hazel marked her 70th Birthday with a 1.5 hr shared potter’s wheel extravaganza in the Potting Tent marquee.
If you have an anniversary, birthday or family get-together planned, why not spend it in the relaxed and creative atmosphere of Eastnor Pottery.
Saturday 25th March 2017 will be remembered as one of the most diverse and busy days we’ve ever had here at Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter.
We facilitated x2 children’s birthday parties, a pottery hen party for 18 girls and an endless stream of couples and family drop-in participants.

Creative practitioners who work in other media are often inquisitive and keen to try new materials. So, as one might expect, we do get to encounter more than our fair share of artists and craftspeople wanting to translate their ideas into clay.
We love working with fellow creatives and are delighted when we get the opportunity to do so.
Check out this amazing collaborative pot made by illustrator Sarah Dean and her family to commemorate her 40th birthday.
Although the pot looked pretty amazing in terracotta, Sarah had other ideas about the finish! I’m sure you’ll agree the acrylic paint job looks magnificent and elevates the artwork to a new level.
Well done Sarah!
