HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

We sold soooo many potter’s wheel experience gift vouchers in the lead up to Christmas, Santa must have had to put in for over time delivering to all the lucky recipients.

If you did receive one, we recommend you book your session in as soon as humanly possible as availability is being snapped up at a rate of knots!

Just navigate to our home page, scroll down until you get to the orange redeem a gift voucher button and then it should be straight forward from then on in. You will need your voucher code so have it ready when you log on.

We are aware there are a few of you out there who didn’t receive a pottery experience this Christmas. Boooooo! :( BUT remember one of our gift vouchers makes for a wonderful birthday present! ;)

Good luck everybody and we look forward to welcoming you to Eastnor Pottery in 2022.

Thank you to everybody who has taken the time to review us on all platforms, you are AWESOME!! Over 400 heart warming reviews on Trip Advisor and counting!

Please check out all the lovely things people are saying about us on our tripadvisor listing. In the meantime here’s a few recent glowing recommendations:

“We came for a 2-day weekend course in July and had a fantastic time. The whole weekend was really relaxing and the tution was marvellous. I just wish I could have spent more time! All 3 of us (myself, my son Max and my friend Rachel) do want to come back. I thoroughly recommend this course whether you’re a beginner or not.” Rebecca

Just from reading reviews, I had high expectations for this experience and it certainly lived up to them. My husband and I loved it. Sarah was a great teacher giving us the right balance of clear instruction & expectation, acceptance & encouragement of a novice’s attempts, mixed in with lots of laughter! For someone who failed their pottery GCSE back in the day, I was delighted with my pot and definitely want to do some more. We would certainly encourage anyone else to have a go!” Getaway559539

“I honestly can’t rate this experience highly enough! I took part in the hen do experience, and was dubious that the day would be worth the cost, but it was worth every penny. The morning was spent learning how to use the potter’s wheel (a childhood ambition realised) and we were all able to have as many goes as we wished (although I could quite happily have sat there all day, and the next), and in the afternoon gave our creative sides free rein, learning how to make and paint coil pots. Jon was patient and encouraging, an excellent tutor. I now want to be a potter!” missapples0805
