Well done Jake who attended one of our recent Potter’s Wheel Courses – Gotta be in our all time top x5!

If we had a penny… lol!

It’s a rarity participants on our Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel go to the trouble of rehearsing their GHOST moment. These two budding thespians were part of a staff Christmas party who chose to do pottery as their Yuletide celebration here at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter. Great fun!

Probably cutting it fine for this year, but if you’re planning a staff event in 2022 please consider pottery as your creative, fun and unique activity.

This is our mantra when we instruct people on how to make pottery on the potter’s wheel – Follow the 5 steps and success is guaranteed!

Illustrator Katie Glover designed this super ‘chalk board’ style poster, currently plastered all over the Pottery for participants to cast their eye over if they get a little stuck.

Lauren, a student at Hereford Art College (HCA) joined us for a week of work experience.

As well as joining one of our Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel classes, she assisted with glazing, packaging customers work and re-claiming clay.

Lauren is considering a career in ceramics and was considering applying to Cardiff Metropolitan University to study the craft. Here’s her art Instagram account.
