masked pottery classes taking place in the potting tent at eastnor pottery herefordshire

So nice to be getting back to what we love and do best – working with you lovely lot! :)

We’ve had a fantastic first week delivering clay modelling sessions for families and Introduction to the Potters Wheel classes for adults. And as for the weather – WOW! We’ve been delivering our session alfresco style in our magnificent Potting Tent Marquee on the Pottery lawn so the Spring sunshine has been more than welcome.

Participants have been lovely and have thoroughly enjoyed their time with us…and if you needed further proof, just look at this positive review left by Roche earlier in the week:

My husband and I had our first go on a potter’s wheel with Jon today. The experience was brilliant (and very much as the great reviews describe). Jon was friendly and professional. He pitched the explanations and help at exactly the right level for us newbies who had never done anything like this before. We laughed and had a lot of fun and even ended up with pots that we’re looking forward to having in our home :-D The whole experience was exceptionally well done from a COVID point of view too – very clear instructions and very well spaced out. We felt safe and the only reminders of a pandemic were the visors and masks. It really was a fab time. Thanks Jon and Sarah!

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 love returners we do!

Kate and her fella Matt first visited Eastnor Pottery participating in our Intro to the Potter’s Wheel class. Kate was pregnant at the time and even though it was a bit of a stretch beyond her bump to reach the wheel, threw an amazing pot!

Here’s her review:

“LOVED IT! From the minute we walked in, we were greeted with a warm welcome. Jon and staff were so helpful and friendly. Jon shown us how to use the wheel and helped us. A real one to one experience. Absolutely loved it. Highly recommend. Great place. Thank you x”

Fast forward a year or so and Kate returned to the studio with her beautiful baby boy and best friend Ashleigh. She’d enjoyed the experience so much she’d purchased it as a birthday present for Ashleigh.

The group made such a pretty picture we couldn’t resist going through the archives and publishing these super cute photos documenting their visit.
