The hen who organised this pottery hen party was determined to work with clay. The bride to be is a creative soul with past experience of working with the mucky stuff and chief organiser Lucy reckoned a pottery session at Eastnor would be the perfect solution.
The girls had great fun making coil pot constructions and taking turns on several potter’s wheels we’d prepared for their visit.
Here’s a link to other hen party groups who have enjoyed getting creative with clay as part of their hen party activities.
We are well and truly into the pottery hen party season. These guys made coil pots and each took a turn on the potter’s wheel during their visit a few weeks ago.
If you would like to experience the delights of the potter’s wheel as part of your hen party celebrations then please take a look at our dedicated hen party page.
Once these ladies had been shown the pinch pot demo there was no ceiling on their inspiration and ideas.
They collaboratively settled on making a clutch of hens for the bride to be, each one an individual masterpiece echoing the maker’s own personality.
We got the impression the ceramic hens would be displayed on the tables at the wedding reception making for some excellent centre pieces and conversational talking points!

Although I’m a regular visitor to Washwood Heath Nursery School in Birmingham, I’m delighted when groups from the School come and work with me on the Eastnor Castle Estate. So far this year we have welcomed a mini-bus full of parents and last month, staff came and learnt about clay techniques as part of their INSET.

Periodically, we are fortunate to facilitate team pottery sessions for corporate clients staying at Farncombe Conference Centre near Broadway.
30 employees from an insurance company based in London stayed at the idyllic Centre as part of their annual team meeting and specifically asked to get creative with clay. Participants enjoyed making pots on the potter’s wheel and create coil pot constructions based upon personal interests.
The client was very pleased with the activity and gave us this glowing testimony after the event:
“The perfect team event”
Thank you for an amazing pottery experience. Your enthusiasm and passion for pottery was immediately apparent and contagious. You were extremely patient with a bunch of novices with no previous experience and made it such fun. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed making the joint piece and their individual pots. It brought out everyone’s creative sides, some with hilarious results. I was delighted that it went so well, so a very big thank you from me, and from the team.
Here are some more photographs from the day.
