We’ve entertained a few WI groups at the Pottery recently.
Groups of 10 or 12 women have visited the studio in the Autumnal gloom to get creative with clay.
These ladies from West Malvern WI were the latest group to visit on Wednesday evening to make coil pots and each take a turn on the potter’s wheel. Most of them had never experienced the potter’s wheel or even touched clay since leaving school.
They had a great time and were positively beaming at their pottery achievements. Well done ladies!
As the Autumn evenings draw in and thoughts turn to indoor pursuits and activities, here’s a timely reminder of the clay, sun and summer fun we had in August at Lakefest.
We offered drop-in potter’s wheel sessions to festival goers, working with approximately 100 or so families and individuals over the weekend. We also took some lovely pics.
There’s nothing quite like throwing pots on the potter’s wheel to bring people together. We enjoy the way complete strangers bond and forge relationships with each other on our weekend and one day workshops.
Participants form a creative and supportive community and although, by its very nature a transient one, the workshops are always a joy and a life affirming environment in which to work.
Here are some pictorial examples of our recent potter’s wheel communities:
30 Sept & 1 Oct Weekend
16 Sept Day
5 & 6 Aug Weekend
No less than five counties, agricultural speaking were represented at Eastnor Pottery on Monday.
The West Midlands region of The National Farmers Union took turns on the potter’s wheel and made a fantastic coat of arms depicting agricultural aspects of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.
Once the crest has been fired, glazed and mounted it will hang in the organisation’s office in Telford, serving as a permanent and creative reminder of their team day at Eastnor Pottery.
Judging by all the banners appearing outside restaurants and adverts in the local press, we thought it was high time to throw our hat into the ‘Christmas office party’ ring!
For the past 20 years we’ve been hosting Christmas get-together s for businesses and organisations keen to try a novel and creative alternative to the pub meal.
For as little as £15 per head you can experience the delights of modelling and painting soft clay. An extra £10 will enable party goers to take a spin on the potter’s wheel.
Complementary fresh coffee, tea and biscuits are standard, although a lot of our groups prefer to bring alcoholic refreshments and their own nibbles and eats.
So, if you are looking for that stand out Christmas party activity for your workmates and colleagues, then give us a call on 01531 633886 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are open 10am – 4pm Tues – Sat but are more than willing to open up in the evening for groups of x6 or more participants.
