Clay themed Hen Party at Eastnor Pottery

We had decided Hayley’s pottery hen party would be the final event of the season to be held in our lovely ‘Potting Tent’ marquee on the Pottery lawn. We assumed that by the end of October, the conditions would be too cold and uncomfortable out there for our guests to get the most from their clay experience.

That was before the decking went down and we discovered the positive thermal effect of fan heaters!

Here we are at the beginning of December and the Potting Tent is still going strong as an attractive and creative environment for pottery workshops and special occasions.

Hayley and her hens had a fab time in the Potting Tent making hollow sculptures and taking turns on the potter’s wheels – no extra layers of clothing required!

Loved this card board cut out of the groom to be who appeared on a table top at a recent potter’s wheel hen party. We assume the boys had something similar at their stag do taking place at the same time? ;)

The girls all took turns on x4 potter’s wheels and made some rather nice shapes and vessels.

We’ll aim to get the pots fired and glazed in time for the wedding so they’ll be able to display their creative exploits on the ‘top table’ :)

Girls choose pottery as a creative and fun hen party ideaThe Potting Tent was awash with kickers and throwers at the weekend as we entertained yet another hen party group, partying and celebrating via the medium of clay.

The girls came forward in pairs to sample the delights of making a pot on the potter’s wheel on our foot powered kick wheels – one hen provided the power by pedaling furiously down below, whilst her potting partner wrestled with a lump of spinning mud on the wheel head. Great fun and loads of laughter :D

We also provided a hand modeling project for those resting from the potter’s wheel. If you take a look at the photos from the session, you’ll agree there were some wonderful clay models created, including a fine brace of owls, purple artichoke and a magnificent biplane.

We are well and truly immersed in the pottery hen party season here in Eastnor, Herefordshire. The groups keep on coming and the standard of thrown pots, pinch pot sculpture and coil pots the girls produce improves on a weekly basis :)

Hannah’s gathering made some fab pinch pot clay models as well as each taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.

Another pottery hen party celebration to follow tomorrow. Watch this space!
