Alan is a talented local artist and professional tinkerer who constructs his quirky art objects from salvaged materials and found objects. Every so often, he’ll book into the Pottery to create some clay figures to incorporate into his upcycled art.
We love his enthusiasm and creative flair and this little steam engine demonstrates oodles of both. Wouldn’t want to mess with the drivers though!
From time to time, customers arrive here at Eastnor Pottery with a definate idea of what they want to produce in clay. We love a challenge and will always try to accomodate their design ideas.
These guys were set on making a piggy bank and a mug – job done!
This young lady on the right was intent on making a giraffe, even if her chosen method of production was the potter’s wheel. Again, we hope you will agree, she proper nailed it!
We had such a lovely couple of days working with participants who took advantage of our FREE potter’s wheel event ‘Free Wheeling’ 16 & 17 Dec 2017.
Last year, around this time we took part in a national #GetCreative campaign called Hey Clay! – A Crafts Council and BBC initiative designed to get the general public making pottery. Artists and arts organisations all over the country were encouraged to open their doors and offer complimentary clay sessions to individuals and families.
Although Hey Clay wasn’t repeated this year, we were so inspired by the event, it prompted us to offer something similar in 2016.
Our customers will be pleased to know, ‘Free Wheeling’ looks like it’s going to become a regular fixture in our workshop calendar. It’s a win win event – visitors get to make a pot on the potter’s wheel for free and we get to tell them about all the fantastic things we do here in Eastnor and in the wider community.
Hey Clay is scheduled for a welcomed return 7-9 April 2017 – can’t wait!

Four kick wheels, three lovely graduates from The University of Wolverhampton and hoards of families of enthusiastic potters.
We were hired by Wolverhampton Art Gallery to offer drop-in potter’s wheel tasters to celebrate the launch of the Craft Open West Midlands exhibition.
I had the privilege of working with the same students back in March when we offered a similar activity at the Launch of Big Ceramics. The girls from the Uni were fantastic and made participants feel relaxed and valued as they sampled the delights of the potter’s wheel, in most cases for the very first time. A career in workshop facilitation beckons!
