The last couple of weekends have been taken up with large groups of women visiting the pottery, choosing clay as a way of marking that special day:

Miranda’s Hen Party
Twenty one of them in total. The gals were staying in Tepee accommodation hence the feathered headdress’s.


Keston’s 40th
Keston and fourteen of her girlfriends, spent a morning at Eastnor Pottery taking turns on the wheel and making decorative plates to mark her birthday.


Penny’s Henny!
Another hen party. This time local lass Penny and friends descended on the studio to make ceramic artifacts and momentoes. Nice hat Penny!

These five lovely ladies have been mates since their school days at Ledbury Primary school. In recent times the gals have taken to meeting up to try different activities – last week it was pot throwing at Eastnor Pottery. Got something to celebrate? Contact Jon the Potter on 01531 633886 or e-mail admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk to discuss the clay based options.

Bride to be Jenny and friends, photographed here outside the pottery entrance. The girls took advantage of our 3 hour potter’s wheel session to mark the occasion. We were able to provide the 8 hen’s with a potter’s wheel each, and they spent the time learning to throw shapes. Although they all insisted none of them had done any before the results were fantastic.

It’s not just little people who celebrate their special day with us at Eastnor Pottery. Claire and nine of her friends joined us after work to mark her 40th Birthday.

The girls opted for our two hour evening session, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As well as making a collaborative jug encrusted with clay flowers, made by each party goer, the girls took turns on the potter’s wheel. They also produced and painted individual coil-pots on a ‘garden’ theme.
Their masterpieces will be fired, glazed and ready to be picked up from the studio in a couple of weeks. If you would like a totally unique experience to mark that special occasion, please call 01531 633 886 to discuss your ideas.
