Masters House Monsters

Terracotta beastie made by families at the opening event at The Masters House Ledbury Herefordshire workshops led by potters Sarah and Lottie from Eastnor PotteryHere’s the wonderful terracotta outcome of a short series of workshops held at the newly renovated Masters House in the market town of Ledbury Herefordshire.

Sarah and Lottie spent three consecutive Saturdays earlier this year working with families to mark the opening of the Masters House after the renovation.

The art work will be installed in the flowerbeds outside the building with plants and herbs growing up and around the structures.

Birthday party praise

Kids pottery party fun at Eastnor Pottery nr MalvernOur customers are simply the best! particularly those who take the time to review their pottery experience on social media. Here’s what one very satisifed customer had to say about her daughter’s pottery birthday party:

Children’s Birthday Party with a Difference!
My daughter celebrated her 5th birthday party with 10 friends at Eastnor Pottery last weekend and had an amazing time! Jon was fantastic engaging the children and if you’re expecting a formal lesson, you’re wrong! He was very playful with them, rendering them under his spell (some feat when you have 11 spirited 5yr olds sat around a table together) but at the same time teaching them his craft. They made some very imaginative creations and so many of the parents have commented on what a fab party it was! The highlight for me was the making of the commemorative pot which each child contributed to. A must-have! Beautiful location, wonderful, unique experience. Highly Recommend!

 

Winterfold House School

YR1 children from Winterfold House School worked with Jon the Potter from Eastnro Pottery in Herefordshire to make this collaborative clay sculpture based upon the book Handas SurpriseSpent a lovely day working with YR1 and Reception at Winterfold School in Worcestershire.

The book Handa’s surprise provided the inspiration for YR1’s creations with the children making a collaborative fruit bowl filled with fruit and animals from the tale.

Reception had been looking at The Three Billy Goats Gruff and opted to make pottery trolls as well as decorating a superb  pot made on the potter’s wheel. Big thanks to the staff who made me feel most welcome.

I was fortunate to sample a school dinner at lunchtime – the banana mouse a particular stand-out moment of a most enjoyable day!
