Rowy’s hen party

bride to be makes a pot on the potters wheel at  pottery hen partyWhen Rowy and her band of merry hens rolled up in their party van, the bride to be had absolutely no idea what they’d be doing. Such was the veil of secrecy surrounding the day’s activities, the response from Rowy was genuine and approving.  After the squeals of delight had abated, she turned to us beaming and commented “My friends know me so well!”

The girls made some very creative coil pot creations as well as each taking a spin on the potter’s wheel.

Happy Birthday To You!

Birthday girl helen celebrates 30th birthday at Eastnor Pottery HerefordshirePeople of all ages celebrate their birthdays with us here at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter.

Helen and her family opted for our 1.5hr shared potter’s wheel experience to mark her 30th. The six adults took turns on the wheel, each person making three or four pots.  Those resting from the wheel offered words of encouragement or simply giggled at their potting partners, wrestling with the spinning clay. One thing was certain, and everybody agreed,  the activity made for a great spectator sport!

We’ll fire and glaze the party’s pots ready for the group to collect in a month’s time, the ceramic keepsakes serving as a permanent reminder of Josie’s special day.

A right proper Capper family celebration!

Jon the Potter helps a young pottery participant to make a pot on the potter's wheelWe just love hosting big family groups, no more so than when the lovely Capper family visited the Pottery in January.

Participants of all ages made pots on x7 potter’s wheels we’d prepped especially to celebrate Grandad Ron’s 65th Birthday.

We call this option our Deluxe potter’s wheel experience where participants spend 3 hrs taking turns on multiple wheels. We then fire and glaze the group’s creations ready to be collected from the Pottery approx one month later.

Large family make pots on the potter's wheelFabulous inter-generational fun!

 

Celebrate good times!

We have over 20 years experience of working with families and groups of friends, celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and reunions.

Many of the workshops are inter-generational and it’s common for x3 generations of the same family to work alongside each other in the creative calm of the studio. Group size is never an issue and we have the space and equipment to accommodate 30 children or 20 adults in one sitting.

As well as creating treasured memories on the day of your workshop, your clay creations can be fired and glazed, making for a permanent reminder of your fun time together in Eastnor.

Here are some photos from several group bookings, all taking place on the same Saturday in January.
