Turns out agricultural recruitment agents make for brilliant potters too!

As well as creating some mighty fine pots on the wheel, the group made a magnificent collaborative piece decorated in an agricultural style with modeled sheep, wheat and farmers!

The individual pots made on the potter’s wheel came alive in the last hour of the workshop as participants used their imagination and coloured underglazes to great effect.

Here’s what lead contact Caroline thought of the activity:

“I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for hosting the team yesterday – everyone had a fantastic time. Judging by the chatter in the office this morning, I think we even have a few who are eager to have another crack at it!

The set up you guys have down there is really impressive and especially the way you were able to lead the group through the process so everyone progressed at the same rate – it was all just really well put together, and all in all a great day out for the team.”

Thanks Caroline :)

flying potter at national trust brockhampton herefordshire

Ashamed to say we’ve been in Herefordshire 25 years and until recently, hadn’t managed to visit either Brockhampton and Berrington Hall, two of the counties esteemed National Trust properties.

We certainly put this to right this Summer! With-in the space of a week in July, we facilitated clay workshops at both properties!

On Saturday 13 July visitors to the Brockhampton Estate were able to throw a pot on the potter’s wheel amongst the mature apple trees in the orchard. We were there as part of a ‘Fun for all’ community event hosted by National Trust Brockhampton as part of their exciting Reimagining Orchard project.

The following Saturday we appeared at Berrington Hall near Leominster. We set up stall in the famous curved wall garden and made mini clay bricks. Participants made two bricks each – one to take away and another to be fired and installed as an interactive ceramic piece at Berrington.

There are exciting times ahead at both sites as each has ambitious plans to develop their outside spaces and enhance the visitor experience.

pottery tiles made in the shape and colour of autumn leaves

autumnal pottery leaves made by children and painted in orange and red

Leaf peeping!?? no, neither had we! Apparently, it’s the informal term given to the viewing and photographing of the ‘Fall’ in the USA and Canada.

In celebration of the imminent and amazing Autumnal change to our own trees and shrubs in The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley, we are running clay modelling sessions on a seasonal theme.

‘Leaf Peeping!’ is the title and visitors to the Pottery during September, October and November will have the opportunity to make a clay leaf tile painted in a riot of Autumnal colour. You’ll leave your creation with us to fire and glaze for approx. one month, after which it will be available for collection from the Pottery. Don’t worry if you cant make the return trip, we’ll package and post your pottery masterpiece for an additional £5.

If you are looking for inspiration prior to your visit – get yourself to The Forest of Dean and get snapping those incredible shapes and colours!

Places cost £20 per person inclusive of all materials, firing and glazing. Sessions can be booked Tuesday – Saturday and start at 10am, 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3pm. Please email us or call 01531 633886 to book you place.
