Happy Birthday To You!

Birthday girl helen celebrates 30th birthday at Eastnor Pottery HerefordshirePeople of all ages celebrate their birthdays with us here at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter.

Helen and her family opted for our 1.5hr shared potter’s wheel experience to mark her 30th. The six adults took turns on the wheel, each person making three or four pots.  Those resting from the wheel offered words of encouragement or simply giggled at their potting partners, wrestling with the spinning clay. One thing was certain, and everybody agreed,  the activity made for a great spectator sport!

We’ll fire and glaze the party’s pots ready for the group to collect in a month’s time, the ceramic keepsakes serving as a permanent reminder of Josie’s special day.

Happy Birthday!

Both these birthday girls visited Eastnor Pottery with their friends and family on the same day last month. The 9th pinch-pot birthday bash took place in the potting tent, whilst Eve & co each took a turn on the potter’s wheel in the main studio.

Eve kindly agreed to be filmed making her pot and was broadcast live on our Facebook page doing so. 5.5K people viewed the video with a further 14K reached, making it our most viral digital movie to date. Well done Eve!

It’s a family affair

Pottery activity for group of grown-ups at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying PotterWe’ve entertained some lovely family adult groups of late. Karen and her grown-up children spent the whole day making pots on the kick wheels and hand- building coil pots whilst Hazel marked her 70th Birthday with a 1.5 hr shared potter’s wheel extravaganza in the Potting Tent marquee.

Saturday 25th March 2017 will be remembered as one of the most diverse and busy days we’ve ever had here at Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter.

We facilitated x2 children’s birthday parties, a pottery hen party for 18 girls and an endless stream of couples and family drop-in participants.

Phew!
