Each year we take part in a FAB free event called Hey Clay.

The initiative is organised by The Crafts Council as part of the BBC’s Get Creative campaign and shines a spotlight on public participation in all things pottery and clay!

Hundreds of organisations across the UK throw open their doors, hosting thousands of free events and workshops. We’ve been involved with Hey Clay ever since it’s inception in 2015 and every year we invite individuals and families the Pottery to make a pot on the potter’s wheel for free.

No less than 120 visitors spread over three days crossed the threshold here at Eastnor Pottery and took a spin on the wheel. Here are just a few of them!

On May 17-19 we will again be offering individuals and families the opportunity to make a pot on the potter’s wheel for FREE! 

Hey Clay! is an annual, national event designed to increase participation in clay work and all things pottery. It’s organised by The Crafts Council and is part of the BBC’s Get Creative campaign.

We love Hey Clay and have taken part every year since it’s inception in 2015. It’s a brilliantly busy weekend and we get to meet lots of new people, most of which have never touched clay before.

Participants get to take their creations home on the day to dry and paint at home, or for a small fee, they can be left with us to be fired and glazed.

15 min slots are available through-out the three days but pre-booking is essential. Please tel 01531 633886 or email admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk to reserve a place.
