I was privileged to spend an evening with 20 or so early years practitioners from a variety of settings in Worcestershire the other evening.
In January, ECHO (Early ChildHood Organisation) invited me to lead a practical workshop at Worcester University for their members.
Working in rotation, four groups enjoyed the four clay activities laid on for them. One of the tasks encouraged the delegates to ‘wear their clay’.
Not sure if clay gloves will ever catch-on, but if they do these guys are ahead of their time!
These guys were brilliant fun when they visited the Pottery to make pots on the potter’s wheel to celebrate Ruthie’s special day. Great costumes and lots of ‘Ghost’ moments!
Way way back in July 2014, we were filmed as part of the Channel 4 series Four in a Bed. If you have never watched the show, x4 B+B owners get to stay in each other’s establishments before grading them at the end of the week. There’s always an ‘activity’ for the contestants to sample and the production company contacted us to see if we’d be willing to participate. Here’s a link direct to our episode, it wont be up there forever. Enjoy! (we certainly did in the making, although most of the funny stuff ended up on the cutting room floor)
The pottery hen party season 2015 was kicked off in style here at Eastnor Pottery last weekend. 14 lovely ladies from Leeds spent a creative and fun morning helping Liz celebrate her hen weekend by making pots on the potter’s wheel. Here’s what they had to say after their weekend in Herefordshire.
Its 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:
Coil pot 40th.
Family potter’s wheel 50th
Wheel & modelling 70th
