Children’s workshops in the Easter Holiday . Fry-up! Wed 11th April 2018
We are delighted to announce details of our fun and creative children’s pottery workshop sessions for the Easter Holiday.
The great British breakfast provides the inspiration and participants make a plate on the potter’s wheel and then fill it with modelled clay bangers, bacon and eggs!
The children will be using terracotta clay and their fired creations will be ready for collection from the Pottery approx. one month later.
Sessions are designed for two age groups although younger and older siblings will never be turned away: 11.30am-1pm 4-8YRS and 2-3.30pm 9-12YRS.
Places cost £15 per child with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone or email booking essential. 01531 633886 email@example.com
FREE wheeling III 23 – 25 March 2018
Once again we are ‘throwing’ caution to the wind and taking part in the immensely popular, terribly creative and extremely good fun HEY CLAY event.
We are inviting individuals and families to make a pot on the potter’s wheel for FREE.
Participants get to take their creations away on the day to dry and paint at home or, they can be left with us to be fired and glazed at just £10. An additional £5 per pot will entitle the maker to paint their pot in ceramic colour right there and then.
15 min time slots available all day. Pre-booking essential. Tel 01531 633886 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have oodles of FREE parking on site.
HEY CLAY! is a national celebration of clay which gives everyone the chance to unleash their inner potter at venues across the UK through free workshops and taster sessions.
The event is organised by The Crafts Council and takes place 23rd – 25th March as part of the BBC’s GET CREATIVE FESTIVAL
Here are a few pics from last year’s Hey Clay:
We recently collaborated with the whole of Broadwas Primary School in Worcestershire to produce this brilliant tile panel interpretation of their school emblem.
Each pupil made an individual tile from soft clay before adding detail and painting in coloured slip.
We transported all 100 tiles back to the Pottery to be fired, glazed and returned to the school for ready for installation earlier this year.
The panel is mounted on the outside of the school near the entrance, welcoming pupils and visitors and serving as an excellent reminder of what can be achieved when everybody works together.
…and, if you study the school’s website banner photo roll for long enough, you’ll see our very own Jon the Potter facilitating a potter’s wheel assembly!
We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Sculpture at Kingham Lodge in Oxfordshire.
Over the past few weeks, Jon has had the opportunity to collaborate with schools local to Kingham, working with staff and children to make a range of collaborative terracotta sculptures.
The pieces are destined to be exhibited alongside professional sculptures created by renowned artists in the beautiful gardens at Kingham Lodge. The show opens 5th – 13th May 2018.
If you’ve got something worth celebrating then come and celebrate it with us!
We have over 20 years experience of working with families and groups of friends, celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and reunions.
Many of the workshops are inter-generational and it’s common for x3 generations of the same family to work alongside each other in the creative calm of the studio. Group size is never an issue and we have the space and equipment to accommodate 30 children or 20 adults in one sitting.
As well as creating treasured memories on the day of your workshop, your clay creations can be fired and glazed, making for a permanent reminder of your fun time together in Eastnor.
Here are some photos from several group bookings, all taking place on the same Saturday in January.
If you have something to celebrate or are looking for a creative activity for your get-together, please call 01531 633886 or email email@example.com to discuss your ideas.
