Making Clay Tractors at Country Tastic Three Counties Show Groun with Eastnor PotteryThe fair weather and myriad of family friendly activities attracted literally thousands of people to Countrytastic at the 3 Counties Showground in Malvern yesterday. Jon & Jack offered Eastnor Pottery at Three Counties Show Ground making Clay Tractors for Country Tasticvisitors the opportunity to model a mini tractor from a pinch of clay. By the close, they had worked their way through 36KG of the squidgy material. Phew! What a busy day! Thank you to everybody who dropped by our stand and we trust everyone transported their clay vehicles safely?! ;)Finished Clay Tractor made with Eastnor Pottery at Country Tastic

Eggstraordinary Clay Fun

Hard Boiled Children's Easter Holiday Workshop with Eastnor Pottery

We thoroughly enjoyed working with the talented youngsters who attended our ‘Hard Boiled’ children’s workshops a week ago tomorrow (where did that week go?).

Everybody experienced at least three making techniques constructing their egg cups, including a go on the Potter’s Wheel.

Although we didn’t manage to photograph everybody, a selection of pictures can be seen on our Facebook page.

Eastnor Pottery hosts big family group for Christmas gift pottery session

Lovely family group in on a recent Saturday consisting of mothers, cousins & siblings.

The gang get together once a year to sample an activity en masse and presented to the youngsters as a Christmas present; be it graffiti classes, recording a song or riding on segways. This year, the co-ordinating mums chose pottery.

One of the dads got roped in too. Once or twice we caught Doug having a sneaky lick of his clay! Apparently, saliva has fantastic clay bonding attributes – We think he just rather liked the taste! ;)

A few more photos here.

Children’s Pottery Workshop in the Easter Holiday

Easter Holiday Children's Workshop at Eastnor Pottery 'Hard Boiled' Poster

‘Hard Boiled!’ Wednesday 30th March 2016

As the Easter holiday approaches, we are delighted to announce details and theme for our egg-straordinary children’s workshop sessions.

‘Hard Boiled’ is a fun and creative opportunity to design and make an eggcup using a variety of pottery techniques.

The children get to sample a whole range of clay modelling skills in the production of their eggcups. They’ll be rolling, pinching and flattening the clay to produce an effect, and the best bit – every child will get to sample the delights of spinning mud by creating a pot on the potter’s wheel!

The masterpieces are then left to dry and fired, ready for collection from the Pottery a few weeks later.

The 1.5 hr workshop sessions are designed to suit two age groups, (4-8yrs at 11:30am and 9-12yrs at 2pm) although younger or older siblings will never be turned away from either session.

Places cost £15 per child (with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked) and can only be reserved by telephoning 01531 633886 or email
