Birthday girl Abby with her fantastic clay elephant. The special workshop took place after school and each of Abby’s friends made a colourful critter. The creations were then painted with slip and left with us to fire and glaze.

If you would like to celebrate your birthday at the studio take a look at http://www.eastnorpottery.co.uk/ and follow the links for birthday parties.

The fantastic weather on Saturday enabled these lucky young ladies to enjoy their picnic in the pottery garden. Phoebe and friends made ‘Owl and the Pussycat’ models before heading outside into the late afternoon sunshine.
