Four kick wheels, three lovely graduates from The University of Wolverhampton and hoards of families of enthusiastic potters.
We were hired by Wolverhampton Art Gallery to offer drop-in potter’s wheel tasters to celebrate the launch of the Craft Open West Midlands exhibition.
I had the privilege of working with the same students back in March when we offered a similar activity at the Launch of Big Ceramics. The girls from the Uni were fantastic and made participants feel relaxed and valued as they sampled the delights of the potter’s wheel, in most cases for the very first time. A career in workshop facilitation beckons!
What a busy summer of pottery mad families, groups and individuals. We have enjoyed working with each and every one of you and the creative output has been awsome.
Here are some beautiful things created by our beautiful customers, a selection of who can been viewed by selecting the individual FaceBook albums below:

Not just for kids – anybody any age can celebrate their birthday by making pottery keepsakes at Eastnor Pottery!
These fella’s took advantage of our ‘Drop-in’ taster sessions to mark their special day in creative style.
A couple of well crafted and quite frankly, ferocious looking clay crabs made by these young artists.
The boys attended a drop-in family workshop entitled ‘Sea Critters’ at Bilston Craft Cafe in Wolverhampton on Saturday 30th July 2016.
One of the highlights of our working calender is the amazing Just So Family Arts Festival held at Rhode Hall in Cheshire.
For the past six years we have coated some of the teeniest festival goers in thick slip and soft clay – some as young as 5 months taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.
