‘Thanks a Bunch’ 14 & 21 Feb 2018
If your children have yet to experience our fun and fabulously creative clay sessions, then the approaching ½ term holiday heralds the perfect chance to do so!
‘Thanks a Bunch’ is the appreciative theme and children as young as 4 yrs. will get to make and paint a pottery vase stuffed full of modelled clay flowers.
The resulting clay masterpieces will be fired, glazed and made ready for collection from the Pottery in time for Mother’s Day! I’m sure you’ll agree this is a not to be missed opportunity to produce a hand-made gift for that very special lady.
The workshops take place on two consecutive Wednesdays to accommodate the different ½ term breaks in the three counties: 14th Feb for Gloucestershire and 21st Feb for Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
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 email@example.com
Don’t forget you can book a session for the whole family in the February 1/2 term holiday. Just call us on the number above to check availability and make a booking. We have start times at 10am, 11.30am, 2pm and 3pm Tuesday – Saturday.
These three teachers from Dean Close Co-Educational Independent School in Cheltenham came and spent a day with us in November learning about clay and making techniques.
This is what they had to say about their experience:
“We all learnt so much and helped us to reinforce the basics whilst giving us the confidence to pass our knowledge onto the children we teach.
A highlight had to be throwing a pot! We all loved it and can’t wait to get practicing.
Sarah and Jon were so friendly and welcoming and their experience and knowledge was excellent. Thank you both so much.”
and if any of you have been fortunate enough to receive an Eastnor Pottery Experience voucher, we look forward to welcoming you to the Pottery very soon.
Lots of love

The West Midlands contingent of The National Farmers Union visited the Pottery in October for a spot of team building and creative play. The group spent an hour or so meeting in the Potting Tent (a unique conferencing suite if ever there was one!) before joining us in the studio for the main pottery event.
The group made a ceramic crest, a clay coat of arms depicting agricultural aspects of the five counties. There were two representatives from Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire, each sub-team charged with a separate section of the crest. There was also ample time for everybody to throw a few pots on five potter’s wheels we’d primed for the occasion.
New skills discovered and everybody feeling relaxed and refreshed, the team headed back to their Telford HQ.
Last week we headed into Shropshire to deliver their ceramic masterpiece to be hung in their office – a permanent reminder of what can be achieved through teamwork.
