The end of the school summer holidays heralds a new group of visitors to the Shire!
Couples and groups of adults descend on the county to enjoy the beautiful Autumnal scenery, the bustling market towns and idyllic villages.
Most of them book an activity of some description to punctuate their visit, and, it appears pottery is high on their list of adventures!
If you are planning a rural, creative break in Herefordshire then please check out our dedicated website page for couples and small groups.
We loved working with these newly weds who apart from making some super pots, introduced us to the concept of the Mini-moon.
After all the extravagance and cost of the big day, more and more couples are opting for a shorter honeymoon break.
This couple worked with us on the Tuesday and then went foraging with Wild Food UK on Wednesday before heading back to Harrow later in the week.
If you and your partner have something to celebrate and fancy getting creative with clay then please take a look at our pottery projects specially designed for couples.
Wine & Wheel! Wed 14th February 8.00 – 9.30 pm
We are hosting a fun fuelled evening of potter’s wheel fun for couples wishing to get dirty on the most romantic day of the year!
Partners will be assigned a wheel, taking turns to make love pots and funny shapes. The ‘best’ ones will be fired, glazed and ready for collection from the Pottery a month later – a permanent reminder of a truly memorable Valentines.
We have one of our customers to thank for the idea. She’s a mum with young children and a regular at our Children’s workshops and Family drop-ins. She mentioned that her husband would love to do some pottery but because of work commitments can’t visit in the day. Evenings would be easier for him to fit around. She even came up with the title…Wine & Wheel…..Brilliant!! So here it is – the perfect Valentines activity for couples looking for a unique and creative alternative to the romantic meal for two”
Although complementary tea and coffee will be available, participants are encouraged to bring their own alcoholic drinks.
The cost is £50 per couple and the workshop runs from 8pm ‘til 9.30pm. Places are limited to 8 couples and are expected to fill up quick. To book your Patrick & Demi Experience, call 01531 633886 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
It wasn’t just the children who had a fab time at the Pottery over February half term. We saw an increasing number of grown-ups and couples join us for a spot of clay creativity.
Adults of all ages sampled the delights of the potter’s wheel, made coil pots and modelled clay sculpture using the pinch-pot technique. We helped customers celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions by enabling them to create pottery keepsakes.
After the half term holiday, we published a photo album of all the lovely participants who dropped by the Pottery.

Did you know POTTERY is the traditional 9th wedding anniversary gift. These guys took it one step further and made each other a clay pot on the potter’s wheel.
