Osteopots!

osteopaths away day at Eastnor PotteryWe welcomed Churchdown Osteopaths to the Pottery a few weeks back for an afternoon of potter’s wheel  fun and creativity. The group was x15 members strong and everybody had plenty of opportunity to make pots on x8 potter’s wheels as well as creating some hand-built gems when they were resting from the wheels.

We had the pleasure of working with this lovely bunch from Hereford Heating Ltd a few weeks back. Talk about a case of ‘giving up the day job’!!! They were brilliant and displayed an amazing aptitude for spinning clay.

Home & away for Snodsbury

Staff away day at Eastnor Pottery for Worcestershire schoolSpent a lovely couple of days in the company of the children, staff and parents from Upton Snodsbury First School in Worcestershire.

On the evening of the 10th, the staff drove over to the Pottery for an end of term celebration, clay training sort of event. They packed a wonderful picnic which they enjoyed in the evening sunshine on the Pottery lawn, before retiring to the studio for a spot of clay fun!

Everybody got to have a go on the potter’s wheel as well as making a start on the tile project we would extend in school the following day. The quality of the children’s work benefited from having had the staff working with the clay the night before and the results were cracking.

Here’s what one of the staff had to say about the impact of the work in School:

By the way, yesterday was great fun and the kids loved it! I ran Forest School in the afternoon for the Year 1/ 2 children and some of the girls we making a mud/clay items like you had made with them in the morning. They were busy patting and turning the mix after every 5 taps and were loving moulding and making things. Now that is inspiration!Worcestershire first school pottery project with ceramic artist
