If your children have yet to experience our fun and fabulously creative clay sessions, then the approaching ½ term holiday heralds the perfect chance to do so!

‘Thanks a Bunch’ is the appreciative theme and children as young as 4 yrs. will get to make and paint a pottery vase stuffed full of modelled clay flowers.

The resulting clay masterpieces will be fired, glazed and made ready for collection from the Pottery in time for Mother’s Day! I’m sure you’ll agree this is a not to be missed opportunity to produce a hand-made gift for that very special lady.

The workshops take place on two consecutive Wednesdays to accommodate the different ½ term breaks in the three counties: 14th Feb for Gloucestershire and 21st Feb for Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

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 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

The Enormous Turnip

Young girl learning to make pottery on the potter's wheel at Eastnor PotteryChildren’s potter’s wheel workshop sessions in the ½ term Holiday – 25th October 2017

As October half term rapidly approaches, we are delighted to announce details of our fun and creative children’s pottery workshop sessions planned for Wednesday 25th October.

The tale of the Enormous Turnip will provide the autumnal inspiration with participants each taking a turn on the potter’s wheel to make a trug for their root vegetable.

Instead of pulling handles, the children will ‘pull’ turnips from the earth! ;)

One at a time, they will sample the delights of the potter’s wheel, taking their little pot back to the table to be filled with hand-modelled Autumnal fare.

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 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

Pirates!

Pirates!
31st May 2017

We are delighted to announce details of our fun, creative and pirate themed children’s workshop sessions planned for the rapidly approaching ½ term holiday.

Youngsters will take a spin on the potter’s wheel to make a pirate galleon filled with rogues and treasure.

Captain Long Jon Potter and his crew of ceramic sea-dogs will be on hand to aid the seafaring creativity:

Those young landlubbers and scallywags who visited the Pottery back in 2006 might recall our ‘Pirates & princesses’ children’s workshops. We reckon everybody loves a bit’ a pirate and the sessions were fit to bursting. Eleven years on, we thought it was high ‘tide’ we hoisted the jolly roger and readied the rowlocks for another voyage of pottery pilfery. We set sail on the 31st . Arrr me hearties!

The children’s terracotta creations will be fired and 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 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk
