D3 Active hired The Flying Potter to provide pottery sessions to run alongside an impressive carousel of other teambuilding activities at a large scale event in Oxfordshire.

We worked with approx 120 employees in 1 hour long rotational groups of 30 people. It was a fun and creative day and everybody who participated made an individual ceramic sculpture.

The soft clay masterpieces were then transported back to Eastnor Pottery HQ, dried, fired and returned to the client to be treasured as a permanent reminder of a fantastic team event.

If you are looking for a creative teambuilding activity or a unique way to reward your workforce then please take a look at our teambuilding projects and away day opportunities. You can visit us at our studio on the beautiful Eastnor Castle Estate or we are very happy to deliver the Eastnor Pottery experience at a venue of your choosing.

Under normal circumstances, The Flying Potter would be meeting thousands of you today at the brilliant and ever popular COUNTRYTASTIC event at the Three Counties Show Ground.

Understandably, the event has been cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Fingers crossed, everything will be ok for COUNTRYTASTIC 2021 and we look forward to getting creative with clay with you all then. In the meantime, here are a few choice photos from our unicorn themed pottery sessions at the show last year.
