A brilliant and collaborative collection of terracotta beasts created by the lovely children from Stanley Road Primary School in Worcester when they visited Eastnor Pottery for the morning.

As always, the Spring and Summer school terms are extremely busy for Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter.
We visit approximately 2-3 educational settings a week sharing the many benefits of working with clay with literally thousands of children and young people in and around the West Midlands.
Since Christmas we have worked with the following schools:
Ledbury Primary – exploring communication and literacy via clay & pottery
Washwood Heath Nursery – EYFS play with clay.
St Benedicts, Birmingham – Exploritary potter’s wheel sessions
Staunton on Wye - cups & saucers with YR 5&6
Vale of Evesham School - Coil pots for Mother’s day
Marlbrook, Hereford – Individual Buddhas
Woodlands Infants, Solihull – Clay dinosaurs with Reception
Chuckery Primary, Walsall – Greek coil pots YR3
Stanley Rd, Worcester – Show Garden for Malvern Spring Show
Prince Alberts, Birmingham – Spring collaborative pots and individual works
Lea Forest, Birmingham – Collaborative terracotta planters with whole school (260 children!)
Phew!!!! No doubt we’ll be coming to a school near you after the Easter break!
I love my periodic visits to Marlbrook Primary School in Hereford. The children and staff are so welcoming and value greatly the opportunity to work with clay.
The day whizzes by in a whirl of energy and enthusiasm and the pottery results are pretty amazing too.
Get a load of these Buddhas made with YR6 on a recent visit.
You get to meet some talented staff and parents when you work with as many schools as we do.
Whilst working at Lickey Hills Primary in Bromsgrove making collaborative pots with 260 children in a day (I kid you not!) we were photographed by a professional photographer who just happened to be a parent at the school.
