Bride to be Jenny and friends, photographed here outside the pottery entrance. The girls took advantage of our 3 hour potter’s wheel session to mark the occasion. We were able to provide the 8 hen’s with a potter’s wheel each, and they spent the time learning to throw shapes. Although they all insisted none of them had done any before the results were fantastic.

It’s not just little people who celebrate their special day with us at Eastnor Pottery. Claire and nine of her friends joined us after work to mark her 40th Birthday.

The girls opted for our two hour evening session, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As well as making a collaborative jug encrusted with clay flowers, made by each party goer, the girls took turns on the potter’s wheel. They also produced and painted individual coil-pots on a ‘garden’ theme.
Their masterpieces will be fired, glazed and ready to be picked up from the studio in a couple of weeks. If you would like a totally unique experience to mark that special occasion, please call 01531 633 886 to discuss your ideas.

Vin & Connie dropped by this week to pick up their lovely pots they made here in February. (See blog entry date Sunday 22nd February)
