egg cup made from pottery clay at eastnor pottery

egg cup made from pottery clay at eastnor potteryAs you may be aware, we are intending to re-open on the 12th April 2021 and to celebrate we are hosting two days of Easter themed, pottery classes for families.

The 1.5hr  fun sessions take place 13 & 14 April and are entitled ‘Egg-straordinary Eggcups’

Families get to sample a whole range of clay modelling skills to produce their very own and totally unique eggcup. They’ll be rolling, pinching and flattening the soft clay to create their eggcups and once they’ve been constructed, they’ll also have the opportunity to paint them. A palette of brightly coloured underglazes will be available to brush onto their marvelous, clay creations.

The masterpieces will be left at the Pottery to be fired and glazed and ready for collection from the Pottery a few weeks later. P+P can be arranged at £5 per egg-cup for those who are unable to collect their work.

We will be working outside in our lovely Potting Tent Marquee on the Pottery lawn. Although we are blessed with ample studio space we are currently unable to accommodate spectators and ‘helpers’. All children must be accompanied by a fee paying adult.

As you might expect in these socially distanced times, places are limited to x8 participants per session so early booking is advised. Places can be purchased online, via email admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk or over the phone: 01531 633886

Although it’s only early March, the gorgeous weather last weekend put us in mind of all the gorgeous pottery hen parties we’ve hosted here at Eastnor Pottery.

Fingers crossed we’ll be welcoming groups of gals back to the Pottery very soon and if you’ve been charged with organising a hen weekend, please take a look at our Pottery Hen Party page. Lots of creative fun and memories to be made.

We look forward to hearing from you but in the meantime, here’s a few hen party team photos from yesteryear!

Pottery monsters made after watching eastnor pottery tutorial

February half term would normally see us packed to the rafters with families and young people, enjoying an hour or two of pottery making. This year, and you don’t need reminding why, it was not to be.

In an attempt to engage our lovely audience we took to Facebook and broadcast x3 and totally FREE pottery tutorials for families to try at home.

What a fantastic response!

Thank you to everybody who took the time to share their fantastic clay models with us. We salute you.

Don’t worry if you weren’t able to ‘make along’ live, we’ve published the videos on our Facebook page so you can follow them at your leisure :)
