Thanks for spending your hen party celebrations with us Laura – we loved working with you all.

Although we didn’t actually meet your lovely husband to be, I think we now have a good idea what he looks like!

We hosted our first ever pottery hen party over 20 years ago, having been approached by a bridesmaid looking for a creative and memorable hen party alternative for an arty hen.

We were (and still are) always up for a challenge and said ‘yes’ without too much hesitation. It just sounded like such an interesting, novel and fun preposition.

Hen parties have become such a huge (and hugely enjoyable!) part of our workshop offer. We have a huge range of projects for groups, details can be found on our Pottery Hen Party page right here on our website.

If you have a date in mind or a bespoke ‘make’ you’d like to discuss with us, please give us a call on 01531 633886 or email admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk we’d be delighted to have a chat!

What a scream! :D :D :D

Once sides were well and truly split, the girls got down to some competent pot making and delightful painting, producing a fine collection of wheel thrown pots.

So much fun, such a lovely afternoon :) Thanks for coming Molly & co.

Now taking Hen Party bookings for 2020 hen party season – why would you want to do anything else!!!

The Welsh girls had ventured into Herefordshire for the whole weekend, leasing a large house as their base for numerous activities and field trips. Pottery featured high on the list and the organiser Sian managed to keep the visit to Eastnor a total surprise from the bride to be.

Emma took to the wheel first and made some hilarious miss-shapes before settling on a lovely little pot, applauded and appreciated by her watching friends.

We had three wheels on the go so all the party managed to make their shapes before painting them all together chatting and laughing around the table. We’ll fire and glaze the vessels in time for Emma’s wedding later this month.

If you want a totally unique and creative hen party experience then please check out our hen party packages for large groups and not so large groups!
