Here’s what one of our lovely hens had to say about her hen party pottery experience:
I was looking for something special, I had something specific in mind. I turned to Jon at Eastnor pottery to see if he could make my vision come true. Not only did he do that but he made it the best experience ever!!! I could not have picked a more beautiful venue to take my friend and her family for a sophisticated hen day. From the very first email enquiry I sent to the actual day Jon was accommodating and could not do enough. I can not thank him enough for making a truly special day…priceless.
Oh and I forgot to mention he even got me retweeted by Kirstie ALLSOP to top it off ….thank you and I will be seeing you soon to collect our works if art xxxx

A big thank you to potters young and old who visited Eastnor Pottery in the Easter Holidays. Here are the photos we took on our camera and if you have any super snaps, please feel free to share them on our facebook page.
If you enjoyed your workshop session and you have a few spare minutes we’d really appreciate a quick review of your pottery experience on our Trip Advisor page.
Thanks in anticipation!
Enfys had no idea she would be making pottery as part of her 60th birthday celebrations. Her family had managed to keep the potter’s wheel session a complete surprise, even when she was aproaching the Pottery entrance she had no inkling of what she would be doing inside.
Her son Chris had arranged for the nine adults to have a wheel each for the three hour session – plenty of time to get to grips with the technique and everybody succeeded in making some mighty fine shapes and pots.
Hmm, hen parties and clay – the mind boggles thinking about the sort of shapes that might get created!
I’m pleased to report that the hundreds of pottery hen parties we have hosted at Eastnor Pottery have been extremely civilised affairs with groups of ladies creating wonderful clay work and tasteful ceramic sculpture.
The lovely group we had in on Saturday were a prime example of the creative souls who frequent the studio. The hens took the pinch pot technique in all kinds of directions making a variety of pots, sculpture and wheel work.
More photos can be seen right here.
Tewkesbury and Newent Young Farmers joined forces last week and visited the Pottery for an evening of clay creativity. They made all kinds of things, sampling a range of pottery making techniques to produce penguins, cats, igloos and a salt & pepper dispenser!
