Just one of many clay sculptures made by young visitors to Artrix Arts Centre in Bromsgrove when Jon the Potter dropped by for a day of pottery fun. The children’s pottery workshop event was part of the Theatre’s Festival of Family Fun 2016 inspired by the movies.
We attempted to photograph everybody’s clay creation before ethey took them home to paint. The results of which can be viewed on our Facebook page.
A few weeks back we hosted a birthday party for 4yr old twins. The weather was amazing, the Potting Tent looked resplendant and the participants were extremely creative.
This is what Mum had to say about the experience:
THANK YOU for a FABULOUS birthday last Sunday I was amazed the young children held their focus for 1.5 hours :)) wonderful to see little ones on the wheel :)) And parents reporting back to me that it was the most relaxing children’s party they had been lucky enough to go to ! :)) Many thanks. See you in a few weeks to collect

We spent five busy and rewarding days working in the fabulous courtyard at Eastnor Castle making collaborative, terracotta dinosuar heads.
The t-rex, triceratops and three raptors will be fired, photographed and splashed across all our social media channels in the coming months.
Each day we took a series of photographs documenting the Jurassic creativity:
