We love our customers just as much as they love their Pottery Experience.

Here are a few reviews penned by some of our satisfied visitors this Autumn:

“Potter’s Wheel Experience was just what I was looking for. The setting was warm, homely, relaxing and zen. Everybody working there couldn’t have been nicer, frequently topping up teas and coffees. And Jon was an excellent tutor, not too hands on but there to assist when required” Tomas Nov 2019

“Jon and Sarah were wonderful and they really conveyed their passion for pottery. We came away with two completely different pots and both thoroughly enjoyed the session. Would highly recommend this workshop!” Sidney Nov 2019

“We did this experience as a surprise treat for a 70th birthday – it was a fun and interesting experience which went down very well. Our teachers demonstrated and explained very well the process of making a pot on a wheel and then glazing it. We were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed it.Peter Nov 2019
“It was an absolute pleasure to come to Eastnor pottery. The location is amazing and is very easy to find. The place it self is very cozy and comfortable. We were welcomed warmly by the team that was very passionate about what they do which very much rubs off on you when it’s your turn to do pottery. Sarah was absolutely fantastic teaching us the basics of pottery and your never left on your own. We left so thrilled and relaxed from our experience, and it’s all down to a brilliant team of happy people. Thank you very much” Alex and Becca Oct 2019

“Such a beautiful location and lovely people. So homely and welcoming we can’t wait to book again!” Cheryl Oct 2019

happy pottery experience participants“Sarah hosted our small group of 4, where 2 of the group were birthday girls and it was so much fun! We each took a turn at the wheel and Sarah was very helpful and encouraging, as a talented ceramicist herself, at helping get the best bowl, vase, candle holder or cup. After that we painted our creations and the range of colours was great. We can’t wait for our finished products to be sent to us in the post. We really had the best time and will definitely go again!” Guy & Kate Oct 2019
Thank you to all you 2019 potter’s who took the time to review us – we love you!

oak tree in the autumn at eastnor castle estateThursday is our making day when we work towards exhibitions, commissions or simply experiment with techniques and materials.

These days are so valuable and have become an essential part of our weekly routine. It’s like a mini, midweek holiday and we have taken to walking to the Pottery through the beautiful Eastnor Deer Park as part of our making day  ‘journey’.

A couple of Thursday’s ago our commute in the sunshine was particularly inspiring and we spent way too much time taking photos and soaking up the Autumnal colour.

Check out the Pottery instagram for more photos.

blogger and instagrammer Monologue visited eastnor pottery and the flying potter to make a clay leaf in the autumn 2019

Say hello to Ramona! :)

Ramona publishes a blog (Monologue) and partner Aaron takes some cracking photos. The pair recently spent a weekend visiting the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean taking in the fresh air and sampling local attractions and restaurants. Check out Ramona’s blog to see where the couple went and marvel at Aaron’s fantastic photography.

If you’ve never been to the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, particularly at this time of year, then pop it on your to do list. Thousands of visitors flock to the area to hike, cycle and stroll amongst the trees, marveling at the Autumnal colour.

You could even try your hand at the potter’s wheel or make a clay leaf tile whilst you are here ;)

How we miss those force 10 gusts and torrential downpours of a week ago!!!!

Despite the challenging conditions we had a ball and met some pretty fab people and aspiring potter’s.

Well done indeed to everybody who made it to the potting tent. It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with you all. Such a lovely, family friendly event!
