Postponed experiences

Genuinely so so sorry we’re not going to be able to welcome you to the Pottery in November :( If you have an Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel Class or Potter’s Wheel Course scheduled for the Lockdown period, please rest assured your experience is safe with us and we look forward to meeting you when you are able to visit – no matter how far in the future that might be.

Pots in the post

If you were able to visit us in the Autumn and paid P+P, we are still intending to post your creations out to you during Lockdown. It may take us a little longer to process your work but please be patient and we’ll email you once they are on their way.

Collecting finished pots

We’ve been operating a non-contact collection system which has worked brilliantly! We’ll continue to use this system once your masterpieces have emerged from the kiln. Again, as our staff have been furloughed, it might take a little longer but we will message you with instructions once they are ready.

And finally…

Although we are currently unable to make pots with you lovely lot, please consider our Potter’s Wheel Experience Vouchers. Christmas is just around the corner and what better way than to treat a loved one by gifting the gift of pottery making!

Stay safe & take care.

As well as reveling in the excellent tuition and creativity here at Eastnor Pottery, a lot of our guests are totally smitten with the surrounding Herefordshire countryside. Just look at the view from the Pottery steps earlier this year. 😊

Did you know that clay is infinitely recyclable? It’s been on the earth some 66 million years drying out and re-hydrating unchanged in nature. It’s only when it’s fired in the kiln it makes an irreversible change. Pottery or ceramic is probably one of the most permanent and durable materials known to man. Once they are out the kiln, they are out there forever!

It’s one of the reasons we ask our one day and weekend potter’s wheel course participants to be selective of their freshly made booty. At the end of the workshop, participants get to choose up to three creations to be fired and glazed. Surplus pots are ceremonially plucked from their resting places for recycling.

Must say it’s not very often we get such a neat pile of rejected pots! #neatlyfolded
