With all the usual honeymoon destinations beyond reach, a lot of newly weds are opting to spend their post wedding days holidaying right here in the UK.

Emma and Neil are no exception and spent their mini-moon touring the country, stopping off in the Shire to indulge in a spot of pottery!

We wish them a long and happy marriage :)

Amy is a BIG fan of the ‘1 second everyday’ app which encourages users to document a second of each day as a micro video.

I wonder what will be the focus of today’s short film!

We had so much fun working with this lovely family of grown-ups who celebrated x2 birthdays with us by indulging in a whole day’s Potter’s Wheel Course.

As there were x4 participants, we were able to offer the group their very own private session on a Sunday.

Everybody had a potter’s wheel to themselves and spent the day experimenting and perfecting their technique. Our day or weekend Potter’s Wheel Courses are the most immerse potter’s wheel experience we offer. Participants gather an understanding of the craft and after a day of throwing, produce some very competent shapes. This family were no exception and the clay results were excellent!

The birthday girls loved it as did the rest of the group. Here’s what they had to say on Instagram:

@jon_williams_potter and @sarah_monk_ceramics are two talented and passionate pottery artists who owns the @eastnorpottery ! Follow and check out their work people 😊. Loved the workshop we attended and Jon is an excellent and patient teacher 👨‍🏫 ❤️

Once we’re out of Lockdown and can gather in small groups again, why not consider a pottery experience as a creative and meaningful family activity. You don’t have to do a whole day either – our 1.5 hr Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel ticks all the boxes too!

Postponed experiences

Genuinely so so sorry we’re not going to be able to welcome you to the Pottery in November :( If you have an Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel Class or Potter’s Wheel Course scheduled for the Lockdown period, please rest assured your experience is safe with us and we look forward to meeting you when you are able to visit – no matter how far in the future that might be.

Pots in the post

If you were able to visit us in the Autumn and paid P+P, we are still intending to post your creations out to you during Lockdown. It may take us a little longer to process your work but please be patient and we’ll email you once they are on their way.

Collecting finished pots

We’ve been operating a non-contact collection system which has worked brilliantly! We’ll continue to use this system once your masterpieces have emerged from the kiln. Again, as our staff have been furloughed, it might take a little longer but we will message you with instructions once they are ready.

And finally…

Although we are currently unable to make pots with you lovely lot, please consider our Potter’s Wheel Experience Vouchers. Christmas is just around the corner and what better way than to treat a loved one by gifting the gift of pottery making!

Stay safe & take care.
