Educational work with schools

Collaborative pots made by birmingham school children and Ethan from Eastnor PotteryAs 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!

Peace & serenity at Marlbrook Primary School

Pottery buddha inspired clay figures made by children at Marlbrook Primary School HerefordI 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.

Lickey Hills Primary School

Jon at Lickey hillsYou 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.

Henriette Lang specialises in family portraits and current work can be spied right here on her Facebook page.

Henriette’s photos were also featured in the local paper.
