terracotta pheasant made by hundreds of visitors to eastnor castle fun week

terracotta dalek from dr who at eastnor potteryOver the years, The Flying Potter has facilitated pottery workshops with oodles of festivals and events, many of which culminate in a collaborative terracotta outcome. The majority of activities often take place in temporary spaces, so the organiser doesn’t necessarily require the fired, finished masterpiece after the event has taken place. As a result, the final ‘resting place’ for many of our projects is our lovely garden here at Eastnor Pottery.

If you ever have the good fortune to visit us here in Herefordshire, please take a moment or two to scour the hedges and flower boarders – you never know what you might discover!

It was a real pleasure working with you all. Those who selected the fired & posted option, your creations made it back to the studio and are drying nicely!

Jon ‘the potter’ from Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter will once again be offering festival goers the opportunity to make a pot on the potter’s wheel.

1/2 hr sessions take place throughout the Bigchill and the Eastnor Pottery Potting Tent can be found in the Therapy & Chill field

Finally found all the photos from last years bigchill

Thankyou to all the lovely people who dropped by the Eastnor Pottery Potting Tent to sample the delights of throwing clay. Jon took in excess of 100 photos, the best of which we’ll compile into an album on our Facebook page.

Must say, as residents of Eastnor, we’ve been very impressed with the professional and smooth way in which the festival has been put together. Festival Republic have taken on the running of the Big Chill, bringing to the table years of experience and expertise of staging similar festivals all over the UK.
We secured our passes and wristbands with the minimum of ‘fuss’ and by Wednesday evening we were pitched up in the Body & Soul area ready to receive our first festival potters.
We intend to publish photos from the Deer Park on a daily basis (yer right!) so watch this space!
