Eastnor pottery trip advisor travellers choice award

jon williams and sarah monk eastnor pottery travellers choice award

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

The fellas have all been mates since their university days at Nottingham Trent University and once or twice a year meet up to spend some time together.

This year it was Pottery in Herefordshire. Yay!

Our Junior Content Producer Apprentice Katie has designed a fab new sticker.

How do you get your hands on one of these? Simple! Enroll on one of our incredibly popular Introduction To The Potter’s Wheel classes and you’ll be issued with one on completion of your experience.

Here’s what Katie said about the design:

“I thoroughly enjoyed designing these stickers. I wanted  to capture the beautiful Herefordshire countryside surrounding the Pottery in an eye catching design customers would be happy and proud to display. I printed the prototypes at home on my illustration commissions printer just to see what they looked like. Once I was happy with the design, I sent it off to the printers for an initial print run of 5000! – I’m so looking forward to seeing how customers respond – who doesn’t love a sticker!”
