Clay bugs and mud monsters!

1 July – 7 September

We’re delighted to announce details of our fun and creative themed workshops for families in the approaching summer holiday.

Clay bugs and mud monsters! is the inspirational title and participants will learn how to create a hollow bug or fantastical beast using soft clay under the expert tutelage of our professional potters. The fun doesn’t just stop with the hand making. Participants also get to decorate their freshly created masterpieces, there and then with a colourful palate of paints and under-glazes. All this for just £20 per person.

If hand modeling isn’t your thing then there is plenty of opportunity to try the potter’s wheel instead starting at just £30 per person.

The creations will need to dry out before they can be fired and glazed. This process takes about a month and the Pottery will contact participants as soon as they are out of the kiln and ready for collection. Don’t worry if you can’t make it back to Eastnor to collect your ceramic arty-fact, P+P can be arranged at £5 per item.

The Clay bugs and mud monsters project is available as from Tuesday 2 July until Saturday 7 September inclusive. 1.5 hr sessions commence at 10am, 11.30am and 1.30pm and 3pm. Telephone and email booking essential: Tel: 01531 633886 admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk Please note the Pottery is closed Sunday and Monday. We’re also taking a break on Saturday 31st August. 

We look forward to seeing you at some point over the Summer.

Superhero poster children's pottery session 30-5-18Children’s Pottery sessions in half term. Wed 30 May 2018

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
