Big family get-together

Three generations of the same family make pottery at Eastnor Pottery in the West MidlandsThree generations of the same family were all in the same place at the same time here at the Pottery in the Summer hols. No mean feat when you consider some family members live in Singapore.

The eighteen participants each created and painted a pinch-pot sculpture.

If you’ve got a big family celebration coming up, you know where to come! Details right here.

Hens with a tale to tell.

Hen makes clay bee at pottery hen partA lot of our lovely hen party groups opt for our 3hr ‘Deluxe’ potter’s wheel experience. As part of the package, the group make a collaborative artwork as a permanent memento for the bride to be of her celebrations at Eastnor Pottery.

The artwork is usually themed and we encourage participants to clay-model an anecdote about the hen, to be added to a large clay form. The addition can relate to any part of the hen’s life and can illustrate almost any story or personal attribute.

We love the stories that emerge as we construct the ‘story pot’ and the activity works wonderfully as an ice breaker, particularly if the girls are not previously acquainted.

Chief hen Philippa (pictured above) made a fantastic clay bee to symbolise her fascination, as a child in catching bumble bees in her bare hands!!! Once Philippa’s hens had completed the collaborative masterpiece, they all took turns on the x5 potter’s wheels we’d prepped for their enjoyment.

Everybody had a fab time and the experience is documented in photographs right here.
