Variety is the spice…

Hand made mug made by workshop participant at Eastnor Pottery in West MidlandsEach pot made on a potter’s wheel by a first time participant is totally unique. The shape is as individual to its maker as their very own fingerprint – everybody holds their hands in a different way.

Once participants have experienced the joys of making a pot, they are offered the opportunity to further individualise their freshly thrown ware by decorating with coloured slips and underglazes.

The variety of approach to colour and theme is awe inspiring. Just take a look at the multitude of effects (and shapes) of these recently fired & glazed customer creations.

Look back at the Summer…

Child receiving potter's wheel tuition at Eastnor PotteryIt sure was a busy one and we’ve had so much fun working with each and every one of our wonderfully creative visitors – thanks for coming! :)

We always ask if customers don’t mind posing for a photo or two, documenting their time spent with us. Think we managed to snap most of them:

It’s a family affair

Pottery activity for group of grown-ups at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying PotterWe’ve entertained some lovely family adult groups of late. Karen and her grown-up children spent the whole day making pots on the kick wheels and hand- building coil pots whilst Hazel marked her 70th Birthday with a 1.5 hr shared potter’s wheel extravaganza in the Potting Tent marquee.
