Pottery birthdays for all ages

adult and child paint their clay creation at Eastnor Pottery in HerefordshireIts not only children who get to experience the creative birthday magic at Eastnor Pottery. In the last few weeks we’ve hosted no end of adult and family groups celebrating 30th, 40th, 50th and 70th birthdays. Often the groups have been made up of grandparents, parents and grandchildren, such is the intergenerational appeal of clay. Here’s a selection of photos from the most recent batch:

Pottery teambuild

Pottery team building activityJust before Christmas we were contacted by a local care home in search of a short but creative activity to help bond and cement relations between staff.

Having a considerable amount of experience in these matters, we were able to offer the organisation a 1.5 hr session where they worked together to build a sizeable, collaborative, terracotta pot encrusted with work related decoration.

Great fun with some of the staff discovering a hidden talent for ceramics.

Once the lidded pot has been fired, it will be returned to the clients place of work to serve as a permanent reminder of what can be achieved by effective teamwork.

They started in the South West Region on Monday 10th November and on Wednesday 12th November the Relay team rolled into Eastnor Pottery, selected by NACC as the Herefordshire venue to highlight their cause.

We were delighted to host an afternoon of clay activities for a group of lovely service users from Ledbury who enjoyed a meals on wheels lunch in the Pottery before trying their hand at making coil pot mugs.

A truly brilliant afternoon was had by all and we cant wait to deliver everybody’s finished and fired masterpieces.
