If we had a penny… lol!

It’s a rarity participants on our Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel go to the trouble of rehearsing their GHOST moment. These two budding thespians were part of a staff Christmas party who chose to do pottery as their Yuletide celebration here at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter. Great fun!

Probably cutting it fine for this year, but if you’re planning a staff event in 2022 please consider pottery as your creative, fun and unique activity.

We loved collaborating with these guys to make a stunning terracotta planter to commemorate Jeanette’s mum’s 70th birthday.

Three generations gathered at the Pottery to build, from scratch, a giant pot using the coiling technique. Once the surface had been smoothed off, the family set about making little clay models to decorate the surface – each clay model related to or referenced a story about the birthday girl. The end result, an encrusted and unique masterpiece that will look absolutely fabulous planted up and displayed in the garden or conservatory.

large hen party group enjoyed making pots on the potters wheel at eastnor pottery

A sunny Saturday afternoon in early September was jam packed with laughter, positive vibes and glorious mess as we marked the welcome return of large groups to the studio.

Rosy’s hen party was sooooo much fun and the girls were delightful.

Here’s what Rosy had to say about their experience at Eastnor Pottery:

“Myself and 13 friends came here on my hen party last week and had an awesome time! After a great introduction and demo from Jon we made two pots each and it wasn’t as hard as it first seemed. It was lots of fun and the whole group was laughing. Jon and Sarah were great and made it really fun, they provided lots of help and advice to those who found it a little more challenging! Would definitely recommend as a group activity if you’re in the area :)”
