It doesn’t matter whether you are 9 or 90, getting creative with clay is the perfect way to celebrate your special day. Both these birthday girls visited Eastnor Pottery with their friends and family on the same day last month. The 9th pinch-pot birthday bash took place in the potting tent, whilst Eve & co each took a turn on the potter’s wheel in the main studio.
Eve kindly agreed to be filmed making her pot and was broadcast live on our Facebook page doing so. 5.5K people viewed the video with a further 14K reached, making it our most viral digital movie to date. Well done Eve!
Husband and ‘keeper of secrets’ Geoff, arranged for himself and wife Julie to spend the day making pots on the potter’s wheel as a birthday surprise. Julie had always harboured a desire to try the potter’s wheel and we were delighted when Geoff approached us to help fulfil her ambition.
He did such an excellent job of concealing the activity from Julie, even when they were yards from the Pottery she still had no idea of what they were going to be doing for the day.
The pair thoroughly enjoyed their experience and we’re sure we’ll be seeing both of them again in the not too distant future.
We’ve entertained some lovely family adult groups of late. Karen and her grown-up children spent the whole day making pots on the kick wheels and hand- building coil pots whilst Hazel marked her 70th Birthday with a 1.5 hr shared potter’s wheel extravaganza in the Potting Tent marquee.
If you have an anniversary, birthday or family get-together planned, why not spend it in the relaxed and creative atmosphere of Eastnor Pottery.
Saturday 25th March 2017 will be remembered as one of the most diverse and busy days we’ve ever had here at Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter.
We facilitated x2 children’s birthday parties, a pottery hen party for 18 girls and an endless stream of couples and family drop-in participants.

We enjoyed working with this young family, particularly the birthday girl who made a fantastic clay bowl on the potter’s wheel. The concentration on her face as she used the banding wheel and paintbrush combo to decorate her masterpiece…
