Great to be back at Hardwick House facilitating more hen party pottery creativity.
Hardwick House is a half hour drive from Eastnor Pottery and is the perfect country retreat for large groups of girls looking for a Gloucestershire base. (The grand steps leading up to the front door always make for a good group photo too)
This particular bunch made and painted coil pots as well as each taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.
The fruits of their creative labour will be fired, glazed and returned to the girls in time for the bride’s big day.
A team of 30 employees from Mira Showers visited the Pottery to creatively explore ideas about how individuals operate within an organisation.
The team had spent the morning at the office working with their Insights Discovery profiles to help them better understand themselves and their colleagues to improve overall team performance.
After lunch, they made the short journey to Eastnor Pottery to interpret what they had learnt about themselves in clay.
Each participant made and painted an individual tile as well as each taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.
Once the tiles have been fired and glazed, they will be hung in the Marketing department back at Company HQ, as a permanent reminder of the teambuilding event and the importance of working as a group.
The afternoon was hailed a success and this is what Marketing Director Craig Baker had to say about their Eastnor Pottery experience:
“A huge thank you for such an enjoyable day yesterday. The whole team was fully engaged and we have had some great feedback. We are all looking forward to putting our installation together”
‘BFG!’ Wed 1st June 2016
To celebrate the Summer cinematic release of Roald Dahl’s Big Friendly Giant (BFG), we’re inviting youngsters to participate in BFG inspired clay workshop sessions in the approaching half term holiday.
Children as young as 4yrs will each have the opportunity to model a 3D portrait of the BFG sculptured from real clay. The fun doesn’t end there as the young artists will be able to paint their creations, there and then with colourful slips and underglazes.
The resulting work will be left with us to be fired, glazed and ready for collection a few weeks later.
The 1.5 hr workshop sessions are designed to suit two age groups, (4-8yrs at 11.30am and 9-12yrs at 2pm) although younger or older siblings will never be turned away from either session. Places cost £15 per child (with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked) and can only be reserved by telephoning 01531 633886 or email email@example.com
The BBC have commissioned a second series of the ever popular Great British Pottery Throwdown … Hurrah!
