pottery course participants brought their parrot along for companionship

From time to time we get asked by customers if they can bring their pooches to the pottery. As long as other participants are fine with dogs, then we are too. We welcome well behaved canine spectators to the studio – no probs.

Dogs are one thing, but we must admit to being slightly apprehensive when a couple asked if they could bring their African Grey Parrot!

We needn’t have been concerned and having such a handsome bird in the Pottery as it was impeccably behaved and made for a unique experience for all our pottery course guests. Isn’t he gorgeous!

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!

Emma and Matthew did just that and it turns out they are both exceptional makers!
