Did you manage to catch our LIVE STREAM pottery tutorials on our Facebook page during the February 1/2 term?

Sarah and Jon had great fun showing us how to make a coil pot monster on Monday, a pot on the potter’s wheel on Wednesday and a clay fish on Friday!

Don’t worry if you missed them, all three videos are now up there on the Eastnor Pottery Facebook page for you to enjoy and ‘make along’ forevermore!

On our Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel Class you get to make two pots each. We then ask you to select your fave for firing.

Sometimes it’s an easy choice! ;) other times participants are faced with a difficult decision!

This adult family of four did really well, their pottery prowess reflected in the quality of their final selection. Well done everybody!

Love is in the air and the leisure and tourism industry in our beautiful county, together with the team at @visit_herefordshire  are celebrating all things romantic by recreating some of our absolute favourite romantic movie moments right here in Herefordshire.

We were delighted to get involved with the campaign and here’s our recreation of ‘that scene’ from GHOST. Hope it gets you in the mood for some romance this weekend!

We’d all love to see your romantic film moments and your celebrations of all things romantic! Re-create your scene (in your bubbles and close to home of course) and post it on your social media using the hashtag #romanticfilmmoments tagging in @visit_herefordshire and they’ll repost it. The best post wins a romantic Herefordshire hamper!

A bit of fun to brighten up lockdown! Everyone welcome to participate (UK only) but bonus points for telling us what you love about Herefordshire or why you’d like to visit us!
