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.

Pink Green celebrated their 11th birthday in a very creative and art inspired fashion here in Eastnor a few weeks ago. The Newbury based creative agency checked into the Pottery first thing to make a collaborative clay work before taking turns on the five potter’s wheels we’d supplied for their enjoyment.
Next, the team headed for Eastnor Castle for a spot of lunch and afternoon sketching, facilitated by OldAshArt

We are fortunate to be able to offer our creative hens the choice of two versatile artist studio spaces in which to hold their party celebrations. The main studio boasting x8 potter’s wheels is popular with groups of girls choosing to wrestle with spinning mud and flying clay!
If participants are looking to make and paint a clay sculpture or model a coil pot creation, the potter’s wheels can be swapped for workbenches and stools giving ample table top space for their clay creations. Claire and her friends made full use of the furniture to produce an impressive array of coil pot goblets and pottery jugs.
Alternatively, some of our larger parties opt for the delightful ‘Bake Off’ ambience of The Potting Tent marquee on the Pottery lawn. Kitty’s hens, 22 in all, settled in for a morning of clay modeling, Prosecco tippling hen party fun. There was even time for each of the participants to make a pot on the potter’s wheel…and perform a hearty rendition of the potter’s wheel national anthem!
We have lots of hen party projects including collaborative works and individual makes. Please take a look at our clay modelling & potter’s wheel options and contact the Pottery to check availability. Tel 01531 633886 or firstname.lastname@example.org
