Clay hens in the Potting Tent

group of girls celebrate hen party by making pottery at eastnor pottery in herefordshireThe delightful Spring sunshine was matched by an equally delightful hen party group who visited the Pottery a little while ago. 17 girls and a fella made some beautifully designed and painted coil pots as well as taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.

After the clay had been cleaned away and the tables sponged down, the girls picnicked into the afternoon, proclaiming the day a blooming success.

Here’s what the had to say about their pottery hen party experience:

“What a wonderful place this is! We went for my friends hen party with 17 ladies (and a man!). Jon made the whole afternoon fun and entertaining. We did coil pots and a taster on the wheel each which was spot on for what we wanted.

It’s the above and beyond elements that make this place so special. Nothing was too much trouble and we ran over time and were still allowed to use the beautiful marquee for our picnic afterwards. Tea and coffee was also provided for the afternoon.

Can not rate this place highly enough :) thanks everyone! ” Tess

Variety is the spice of life

Saturday 25th March 2017 will be remembered as one of the most diverse and busy days we’ve ever had here at Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter.

We facilitated x2 children’s birthday parties, a pottery hen party for 18 girls and an endless stream of couples and family drop-in participants.

Phew!

More photographic evidence here.

The girls had so much fun taking turns on three potter’s wheels making a ‘dazzling’ array of jugs, pots and plates. We’ll now fire and glaze the creative output in good time for the wedding in June.

The hens of Hardwick

Hardwick House is a half hour drive from Eastnor Pottery and is the perfect country retreat for large groups of girls looking for a Gloucestershire base. (The grand steps leading up to the front door always make for a good group photo too)

This particular bunch made and painted coil pots as well as each taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.

The fruits of their creative labour will be fired, glazed and returned to the girls in time for the bride’s big day.
