Group booking FAQ’s

Clothes: The sessions are no-where near as mucky as you may at first think. However, the wearing of old clothes is advisable. We provide aprons for the potter’s wheel activity.

Drink: Complimentary tea, coffee and squash is provided.

Food: Although we are unable to provide food, many of our customers like to bring a picnic. This can be consumed either on the pottery lawn, The Potting Tent marquee or in the studio (once the clay has been tidied away.)

Finished work: Your creations will need to dry thoroughly before they can be fired and glazed. This takes between 2 – 4 weeks depending on drying conditions. We will contact you after this period to arrange a time for you to pick up the work from the Pottery. Alternatively we can post your pots at cost to one address. (£30 – £50 depending on weight and size of consignment)

A happy customer

“We have spent a fantastic afternoon at Eastnor pottery with Jon & his team for my dad’s 70th birthday. We wanted an activity to suit and inspire all ages and they didn’t disappoint.
The pottery studio itself, is a beautiful creative space and the team guided us through making pinch pots/creatures, unphased by there being grandparents, adults, teens and tots all in one group. They were really flexible on the package we wanted and all this contributed to a wonderful family memory we will remember everytime we look at our creations.
We would definitely recommend a visit or for a group activity or party.”  – Ruth
