We’ve just reached 2000 followers on Instagram. Hurrah!
To celebrate this mini-landmark, we organised a prize draw with a Clay Modelling experience for a family of four as the giveaway prize. (value £80)
To enter, participants had to ‘like’ the post promoting the giveaway, follow our @eastnorpottery account and finally tag a friend. Entrants could use one tag per comment but with no restriction on the number of comments – the more tags, the better chance of winning!
We had over 170 entries and congratulations to @minkylucy who was first out of the hat!
As you may be aware, we are intending to re-open on the 12th April 2021 and to celebrate we are hosting two days of Easter themed, pottery classes for families.
The 1.5hr fun sessions take place 13 & 14 April and are entitled ‘Egg-straordinary Eggcups’
Families get to sample a whole range of clay modelling skills to produce their very own and totally unique eggcup. They’ll be rolling, pinching and flattening the soft clay to create their eggcups and once they’ve been constructed, they’ll also have the opportunity to paint them. A palette of brightly coloured underglazes will be available to brush onto their marvelous, clay creations.
The masterpieces will be left at the Pottery to be fired and glazed and ready for collection from the Pottery a few weeks later. P+P can be arranged at £5 per egg-cup for those who are unable to collect their work.
We will be working outside in our lovely Potting Tent Marquee on the Pottery lawn. Although we are blessed with ample studio space we are currently unable to accommodate spectators and ‘helpers’. All children must be accompanied by a fee paying adult.
As you might expect in these socially distanced times, places are limited to x8 participants per session so early booking is advised. Places can be purchased online, via email email@example.com or over the phone: 01531 633886
