On day two of our Potter’s Wheel Weekend Course, you get to paint your pots made on day one.

We love the variety of decorative technique employed by the participants. Some people splash the colour on whilst others take a little more time with their painting. Top work Giles!

If you needed anymore proof of the power of pottery, please read Fran’s heartwarming review of our Potter’s Wheel Weekend Course.

My partner and I spent a weekend doing this course. My partner had experience (60 years ago) and wanted to renew his interest. I had no prior experience. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My partner has Alzheimers and finds it hard to concentrate. I was worried he would find the course confusing. I need not have worried. The friendly, genuinely warm and interested, approach of Jon and Sarah, the pace and attention they gave to all their students and the lovely environment of their studio helped us both relax. A delightful weekend which I would both wholeheartedly recommend and would like to repeat.

Thanks Fran and we enjoyed our weekend just as much as you did.potter's wheel course participants work drying in the sun at eastnor pottery

We love a ‘happy accident’ on our courses and experiences.

A little bit too much pressure here and there and the results are phenomenal!

A few weeks back we were contacted by a young videographer and photographer called George Nash. He asked if he could visit to shoot some footage to add to his burgeoning portfolio of photographs and moving image.

We were instantly struck by the professionalism of his approach and the initiative he’d demonstrated in doing so.

George spent a busy Saturday morning in March with us filming and photographing our customers and staff in action. He also brought along his drone to get a bird’s eye view of the Pottery and surrounding Herefordshire landscape.

George was very easy to work with, putting ourselves and more importantly our customers at ease as he moved around the studio, capturing large and small interactions. He demonstrated a really good eye for composition and worked very hard to capture the ‘right’ images.

We are so impressed not only with the results, but the speed in which he delivered the finished work. We think he’s captured the vibe and environment we strive for perfectly. Well done George!
