So nice to be getting back to what we love and do best – working with you lovely lot! :)

We’ve had a fantastic first week delivering clay modelling sessions for families and Introduction to the Potters Wheel classes for adults. And as for the weather – WOW! We’ve been delivering our session alfresco style in our magnificent Potting Tent Marquee on the Pottery lawn so the Spring sunshine has been more than welcome.

Participants have been lovely and have thoroughly enjoyed their time with us…and if you needed further proof, just look at this positive review left by Roche earlier in the week:

My husband and I had our first go on a potter’s wheel with Jon today. The experience was brilliant (and very much as the great reviews describe). Jon was friendly and professional. He pitched the explanations and help at exactly the right level for us newbies who had never done anything like this before. We laughed and had a lot of fun and even ended up with pots that we’re looking forward to having in our home :-D The whole experience was exceptionally well done from a COVID point of view too – very clear instructions and very well spaced out. We felt safe and the only reminders of a pandemic were the visors and masks. It really was a fab time. Thanks Jon and Sarah!

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 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk or over the phone: 01531 633886
