delicate daffodil flower in garden at eastnor pottery in herefordshire

The abundance of daffodils on the Pottery lawn usually heralds the start of the busy season here at Eastnor Pottery. As soon as those delicate yellow petals unfurl, we’re braced for the influx of Spring and Summer visitors – all ages and abilities, keen to experience the delights of the potter’s wheel or learn a new skill. Usually, we are so frantically busy we don’t get to admire the daffodils and revel in the natural beauty of of these amazing flowers.

Always a joy to be working the idyllic grounds of Hellens near Much Marcle.

Every year the beautifully tended house and grounds are the setting for a Garden Festival open to the general public. More often than not we’re asked to provide ‘make and take away’ clay workshops for young visitors and their families.

This year Aimee and Immy were in attendance on the Saturday and Sarah took up the reins on Sunday.

Over the two days, countless participants made pinch pot fish to take home to paint.

Here’s a small selection left with us whilst their makers enjoyed the rest of the show without having o lug their creations around with them. Pleased to report all the fish were collected at the end of the event.

If you took part in the drop-in workshops and managed to paint your creation we’d love it if you could email us a picture: admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk
