Pinch Pot Pig!

19 – 23 February 2019

We are delighted to announce details of our fun and creative themed sessions for families in the approaching February half term.

Pinch Pot Pig is the theme in celebration of the Chinese New Year. Participants will use proper clay to make and paint a little piggie to be left with us to be fired and glazed.

We’ve shaken things up in terms of what we offer our lovely customers. Traditionally our children’s sessions have taken place on the Wednesday of every school holiday and if families couldn’t make that date then they would miss out on all the clay fuelled fun – but not so anymore! – visitors can book Tuesday to Saturday and the best bit.… grown-ups can participate too!

The workshops are designed for children as young as 4 years and there is no upper age limit.

1.5 hr sessions commence at 10am, 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3pm and places cost £20. Telephone and email booking essential: Tel: 01531 633886 e: admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk

Superhero!

We are delighted to announce details of our fun and creative children’s workshop sessions scheduled for the approaching half term holiday.

Superhero is the exciting and inspirational theme.

It doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll be encouraging the children to make Marvel Comic inspired characters (although who can fail to be impressed by the powers of Ironman or The Hulk!) We’ll also be encouraging the young clay enthusiasts to consider Superheros closer to home. We’re thinking mums, dads, grandparents, teachers or some other figure they admire or look up to.

Once the children have modelled their superheros using a range of pottery making techniques, they will have the opportunity to paint their creations, there and then with coloured slips and underglazes.

The resulting work will need to dry thoroughly before it can be fired in the kiln. We allow approximately one month for this process and details of collection times will be issued on the day of the workshop.

1.5 hr sessions commence at 11.30am and 2pm and are tailored for two age groups: 4-8yrs in the morning and 9-12yrs in the afternoon. Although, these age ranges are not strictly adhered to as younger and older siblings are always welcome to participate on either session.

Places cost £15 per head with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone and email booking essential: Tel: 01531 633886 e: admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk
