Pirates!

Pirate pottery fun for children in half term at Eastnor PotteryChildren’s workshops in the ½ term Holiday
Pirates!
31st May 2017

We are delighted to announce details of our fun, creative and pirate themed children’s workshop sessions planned for the rapidly approaching ½ term holiday.

Youngsters will take a spin on the potter’s wheel to make a pirate galleon filled with rogues and treasure.

Captain Long Jon Potter and his crew of ceramic sea-dogs will be on hand to aid the seafaring creativity:

Those young landlubbers and scallywags who visited the Pottery back in 2006 might recall our ‘Pirates & princesses’ children’s workshops. We reckon everybody loves a bit’ a pirate and the sessions were fit to bursting. Eleven years on, we thought it was high ‘tide’ we hoisted the jolly roger and readied the rowlocks for another voyage of pottery pilfery. We set sail on the 31st . Arrr me hearties!

The children’s terracotta creations will be fired and ready for collection from the Pottery approx. one month later.

Sessions are designed for two age groups although younger and older siblings will never be turned away: 11.30am-1pm 4-8YRS and 2-3.30pm 9-12YRS. Places cost £15 per child with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone or email booking essential. 01531 633886 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

 

 

The hens of Hardwick

Mobile pottery hen party visits Hardwick House nr TewkesburyGreat to be back at Hardwick House facilitating more hen party pottery creativity.

Hardwick House is a half hour drive from Eastnor Pottery and is the perfect country retreat for large groups of girls looking for a Gloucestershire base. (The grand steps leading up to the front door always make for a good group photo too)

This particular bunch made and painted coil pots as well as each taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.

The fruits of their creative labour will be fired, glazed and returned to the girls in time for the bride’s big day.
