Hens here there and everywhere

Hen party group make pottery jugs and goblets

We are fortunate to be able to offer our creative hens the choice of two versatile artist studio spaces in which to hold their party celebrations. The main studio boasting x8 potter’s wheels is popular with groups of girls choosing to wrestle with spinning mud and flying clay!

If participants are looking to make and paint a clay sculpture or model a coil pot creation, the potter’s wheels can be swapped for workbenches and stools giving ample table top space for their clay creations. Claire and her friends made full use of the furniture to produce an impressive array of coil pot goblets and pottery jugs.

Alternatively, some of our larger parties opt for the delightful ‘Bake Off’ ambience of The Potting Tent marquee on the Pottery lawn. Kitty’s hens, 22 in all, settled in for a morning of clay modeling, Prosecco tippling hen party fun. There was even time for each of the participants to make a pot on the potter’s wheel…and perform a hearty rendition of the potter’s wheel national anthem!

We have lots of hen party projects including collaborative works and individual makes. Please take a look at our clay modelling & potter’s wheel options and contact the Pottery to check availability. Tel 01531 633886 or admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

Variety is the spice…

Hand made mug made by workshop participant at Eastnor Pottery in West MidlandsEach pot made on a potter’s wheel by a first time participant is totally unique. The shape is as individual to its maker as their very own fingerprint – everybody holds their hands in a different way.

Once participants have experienced the joys of making a pot, they are offered the opportunity to further individualise their freshly thrown ware by decorating with coloured slips and underglazes.

The variety of approach to colour and theme is awe inspiring. Just take a look at the multitude of effects (and shapes) of these recently fired & glazed customer creations.

It’s a family affair

Pottery activity for group of grown-ups at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying PotterWe’ve entertained some lovely family adult groups of late. Karen and her grown-up children spent the whole day making pots on the kick wheels and hand- building coil pots whilst Hazel marked her 70th Birthday with a 1.5 hr shared potter’s wheel extravaganza in the Potting Tent marquee.
