Children’s ½ term Holiday Pottery Sessions

Halfterm pottery workshop for children at Eastnor Pottery inspired by Roald Dahl's BFG‘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 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

Pottery funny bones

ahlberg inspired school creativity project led by artist potter jon williamsGreat to be back at Bishops Cleeve Primary School. They are committed to delivering a creative curriculum teaching all core subjects and skills (numeracy/literacy etc) through exciting topics.

They also have a talented art specialist teacher who spends a whole day off timetable inspiring the students. The results are amazing with corridors, halls and classrooms festooned with ambitious art works constructed from all kinds of different media.

I worked with Yr3 making skeleton tiles inspired by Janet & Allan Ahlberg well known Funny bones stories.
