FREE wheeling III 23 – 25 March 2018
Once again we are ‘throwing’ caution to the wind and taking part in the immensely popular, terribly creative and extremely good fun HEY CLAY event.
We are inviting individuals and families to make a pot on the potter’s wheel for FREE.
Participants get to take their creations away on the day to dry and paint at home or, they can be left with us to be fired and glazed at just £10. An additional £5 per pot will entitle the maker to paint their pot in ceramic colour right there and then.
15 min time slots available all day. Pre-booking essential. Tel 01531 633886 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have oodles of FREE parking on site.
HEY CLAY! is a national celebration of clay which gives everyone the chance to unleash their inner potter at venues across the UK through free workshops and taster sessions.
The event is organised by The Crafts Council and takes place 23rd – 25th March as part of the BBC’s GET CREATIVE FESTIVAL
Here are a few pics from last year’s Hey Clay:
We just love hosting big family groups, no more so than when the lovely Capper family visited the Pottery in January.
Participants of all ages made pots on x7 potter’s wheels we’d prepped especially to celebrate Grandad Ron’s 65th Birthday.
We call this option our Deluxe potter’s wheel experience where participants spend 3 hrs taking turns on multiple wheels. We then fire and glaze the group’s creations ready to be collected from the Pottery approx one month later.
Fabulous inter-generational fun!
If you’ve got something worth celebrating then come and celebrate it with us!
We have over 20 years experience of working with families and groups of friends, celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and reunions.
Many of the workshops are inter-generational and it’s common for x3 generations of the same family to work alongside each other in the creative calm of the studio. Group size is never an issue and we have the space and equipment to accommodate 30 children or 20 adults in one sitting.
As well as creating treasured memories on the day of your workshop, your clay creations can be fired and glazed, making for a permanent reminder of your fun time together in Eastnor.
Here are some photos from several group bookings, all taking place on the same Saturday in January.
If you have something to celebrate or are looking for a creative activity for your get-together, please call 01531 633886 or email email@example.com to discuss your ideas.

We are fortunate to be able to offer our creative hens the choice of two versatile artist studio spaces in which to hold their party celebrations. The main studio boasting x8 potter’s wheels is popular with groups of girls choosing to wrestle with spinning mud and flying clay!
If participants are looking to make and paint a clay sculpture or model a coil pot creation, the potter’s wheels can be swapped for workbenches and stools giving ample table top space for their clay creations. Claire and her friends made full use of the furniture to produce an impressive array of coil pot goblets and pottery jugs.
Alternatively, some of our larger parties opt for the delightful ‘Bake Off’ ambience of The Potting Tent marquee on the Pottery lawn. Kitty’s hens, 22 in all, settled in for a morning of clay modeling, Prosecco tippling hen party fun. There was even time for each of the participants to make a pot on the potter’s wheel…and perform a hearty rendition of the potter’s wheel national anthem!
We have lots of hen party projects including collaborative works and individual makes. Please take a look at our clay modelling & potter’s wheel options and contact the Pottery to check availability. Tel 01531 633886 or firstname.lastname@example.org
