Hen party season is definitely upon us with groups of happy hens beating a path to our door. Saturday was particularly busy with no less than four separate groups of gals getting creative with the squidgy stuff.

Some of the groups made pots on the potter’s wheel whilst others made and painted clay sculpture – most of it pretty tasteful!!

Hen party season appears to start earlier and earlier here at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter. No sooner had the tinsel been stowed, Helen and her band of merry hens descended on the studio to make ceramic keepsakes and pottery artyfacts!

We love this boomerang of one of the party goers. She was immensely proud of her creation – and quite rightly so – we think its lovely!

Other members of the party made owls, penguins and pencil pots. Check out this little video of their creations on Instagram.

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.

Hen party group make pottery jugs and gobletsWe hosted our first ever pottery hen party over 20 years ago having been approached by a brides maid looking for a creative hen party activity for an arty hen.

We were (and still are) always up for a challenge and said ‘yes’ without too much hesitation. It just sounded like such an interesting, novel and fun preposition.

Little did we anticipate at the time, hen parties would become such a huge (and hugely enjoyable!) part of our workshop offer.

Here are a few photos from Claire’s particularly lovely pottery hen party experience we facilitated Autumn 2017. The girls made and painted coil pot goblets which looked stunning once they had been fired and glazed.
