Eastnor Pottery has been awash with hen parties this summer, and the potter’s wheel is just one of many projects we offer our groups of girls. These guys had a great time working with the clay and made some fantastic pieces!

Breakout event in Sunningdale.

Potter's Wheel in use with Eastnor PotteryVery pleased to be working again with Cinnamon Active Events based in Surrey. Looking back it’s been near on 10 years since we first hooked up with the guys, supplying them with novel and creative team pottery events for their prestigious client base.
Lottie and myself set up The Flying Potter mobile studio in a conference room at The Sunningdale Vere Hotel, enabling a corporate group to collaborate and produce a coat of arms inspired by organisation’s values and ethos.

“Would you please pass on our ‘thanks’ to all whom helped organise the event for us yesterday & in particular to our facilitators on the day, Jon & Lottie. It was a great activity & we have had some lovely feedback & look forward to receiving the completed items once baked/glazed.”

Surgeons, nurses, admin & kitchen staff attended hour long sessions to create a giant Worcestershire Black Pear Tree. Each participant made either a pear or a leaf decorated in a manor representative of their own personality or interests.

Staff and management raved about the experience commenting on the fun and therapeutic nature of the sessions.

Once it’s been fired and glazed, the tree will be mounted on the wall in reception for clients and staff to marvel at and enjoy.
