Pottery team building event at Eastnor Pottery Herefordshire

Staff from the School of Biological Sciences, Bristol University descended on the Pottery in August, (all 18 of them) for a spot of pottery team building.

Participants built a collaborative jug, took turns on eight potter’s wheels and made some intricate pottery models before enjoying a buffet lunch in The Potting Tent Marquee.

If you would like to reward your staff or our planning a unique works away day for your colleagues, please take a look at our page dedicated to team-building.

Three generations of the same family make pottery at Eastnor Pottery in the West MidlandsThree generations of the same family were all in the same place at the same time here at the Pottery in the Summer hols. No mean feat when you consider some family members live in Singapore.

The eighteen participants each created and painted a pinch-pot sculpture.

bride to be makes a pot on the potters wheel at  pottery hen partyWhen Rowy and her band of merry hens rolled up in their party van, the bride to be had absolutely no idea what they’d be doing. Such was the veil of secrecy surrounding the day’s activities, the response from Rowy was genuine and approving.  After the squeals of delight had abated, she turned to us beaming and commented “My friends know me so well!”

The girls made some very creative coil pot creations as well as each taking a spin on the potter’s wheel.

Birthday girl helen celebrates 30th birthday at Eastnor Pottery HerefordshirePeople of all ages celebrate their birthdays with us here at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter.

Helen and her family opted for our 1.5hr shared potter’s wheel experience to mark her 30th. The six adults took turns on the wheel, each person making three or four pots.  Those resting from the wheel offered words of encouragement or simply giggled at their potting partners, wrestling with the spinning clay. One thing was certain, and everybody agreed,  the activity made for a great spectator sport!

We’ll fire and glaze the party’s pots ready for the group to collect in a month’s time, the ceramic keepsakes serving as a permanent reminder of Josie’s special day.
