superb pottery skills at eastnor pottery

On our Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel Class you get to make two pots each. We then ask you to select your fave for firing.

Sometimes it’s an easy choice! ;) other times participants are faced with a difficult decision!

This adult family of four did really well, their pottery prowess reflected in the quality of their final selection. Well done everybody!

Love is in the air and the leisure and tourism industry in our beautiful county, together with the team at @visit_herefordshire  are celebrating all things romantic by recreating some of our absolute favourite romantic movie moments right here in Herefordshire.

We were delighted to get involved with the campaign and here’s our recreation of ‘that scene’ from GHOST. Hope it gets you in the mood for some romance this weekend!

We’d all love to see your romantic film moments and your celebrations of all things romantic! Re-create your scene (in your bubbles and close to home of course) and post it on your social media using the hashtag #romanticfilmmoments tagging in @visit_herefordshire and they’ll repost it. The best post wins a romantic Herefordshire hamper!

A bit of fun to brighten up lockdown! Everyone welcome to participate (UK only) but bonus points for telling us what you love about Herefordshire or why you’d like to visit us!

We’re nearly half way through January already! Traditionally this is the time of year our Weekend and One day Potter’s Wheel Courses are full to burst with excited New Year newcomers, eager to learn how to make pottery on the potter’s wheel.

Although we are not able to open at the moment, we are tentatively advertising the 27 & 28 February as our first Weekend Potter’s Wheel Course of 2021. We’re about half full and would love to fill the remaining places. If you fancy spending a day or weekend relaxing and throwing pots then you can book online.

We, and we’re sure you are too, are not under any illusion the event may need to be postponed. Please rest assured if you book, we’ll honour your commitment and reschedule your experience for as long as it takes to visit us.

No doubt, we’ll be adding extra dates later in the year to accommodate, not only the postponed January participants, but also the lucky recipients of Christmas gift vouchers.

In the meantime, here are the scheduled dates for 2021 Potter’s Wheel season at Eastnor Pottery!

We adore what we do and are extremely proud of our offering here at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter. But what we really really appreciate is the love and positivity reciprocated in the brilliant 5 Star reviews left by customers – warms the cockles!!

“We had so much fun making pottery with Jon and Sarah – their communication before and during our session was outstanding, the equipment was spotless and efficient, we really couldn’t recommend this enough!” BETH

“Sarah was a brilliant teacher and I would definitely recommend this experience. Really impressed with how well social distancing was catered for also!” HANNAH

“My partner and I had a fantastic morning with Sarah and Jon! The 1.5hr session on the potting wheel was brilliant, we both had a great time and learnt so much! Jon and Sarah were so friendly and welcoming. We’d love to return for the day-long session! Great value, well worth booking!” VICTORIA

“Thank you for a wonderful honeymoon experience. Very relaxing and exciting to create something (albeit wonky!) something I would love to do again” EMMA

“Four of us went together with essentially zero experience of throwing pots. However, we were extremely excited to go and had high expectations. From the start, the experience far exceeded what any of us expected. The pottery studio itself was lovely and easy to find. There were great examples of the work Jon and Sarah had completed previously on the shelves as well as examples of what we could make during our time. Jon was friendly and extremely helpful throughout and took the time to get to know us and find out our competencies and expectations. He was patient throughout and tailored his advice to how well we were managing to cope. He remained friendly throughout with a good sense of humour. The pottery experience itself was technically great. We all noticed big improvements even in the time we had there. Afterwards we all were sure we’d want to do more throwing in the future. It’s a shame we don’t live nearby or we’d be going back for regular classes with Jon. Despite only having gone 4 weeks ago the pots are already in the post to us and we can’t wait to see how they’ve turned out. All in all, a perfect airBnB experience and excellent value for money.” AARON
