happy customer leaves a lovely review of her pottery courses at eastnor potteryBIG Thank you to all our lovely customers who have reviewed us on TripAdvisor over the past months and years.

It really makes a huge difference to a small business like ourselves, particularly in these challenging times and we are eternally grateful for your effort.

Just before lockdown Nicola was one of eight individuals who participated on our Weekend Potter’s Wheel Course. Here’s what she had to say about the experience:

I have just returned from a two day course at Eastnor. The location was easy to find and facilities were great. I was part of a group of eight people, some of whom were returning but others complete novices. The group was friendly as were the tutors. We all received plenty of attention and learned a lot and also had great fun. We were encouraged to be bold and creative. I would have no hesitation in recommending the course to anyone. I thoroughly enjoyed it- the time went way too quickly 😀

Don’t just take Nicola’s word for it, please take a look at our TripAdvisor page for lots more fantastic and complimentary customer reviews.

It’s also a well publicised campaign and as you can probably imagine, we are (usually) inundated with punters – making it one of our busiest weekends of the year.

Although COVID-19 has put pay to the participatory aspect here at the studio, Hey Clay 2020 is still going ahead across all the social media platforms. They’ll be how to do videos, online chat and virtual studio tours from participating venues. Rest assured we’ll be contributing live feed and tutorials through-out. Check out:

I’m sure HeyClay will be back, stronger than ever, in its traditional format next year. In the meantime and to whet your appetite, here’s a couple of links to the FREE potter’s wheel fun we’ve had in previous years.

Hey Clay 2017

Hey Clay 2019

#getcreativeathome offers a wide range of tutorials and content online so you can get creative in lockdown. We have x3 ‘how to’ videos up there too:

How to make a pottery fish.

How to make a pottery owl.

How to make a pot on the potter’s wheel.

 

Potters Wheel Introduction

Over the years we’ve produced a collection of ‘how to do’ videos.

In an attempt to help educate and ‘entertain’ the nations children, we’ve dusted off a few of the ‘better’ (?) ones to post here on our website.

So far Jon the Potter has showed you how to make a clay fish and a coil pot owl. In this, the third in the series he talks you through the process of throwing a pot on the potter’s wheel… You might need a potter’s wheel for this one! Even if you don’t, you cant beat the magic of watching a lump of clay magically transform into a pot on the potter’s wheel.

Enjoy! and if you are lucky enough to own a potter’s wheel, we’d love to see your results. Ping us a pic on TwitterFace Book or Instagram – make sure you tag us in too! We’re @eastnorpottery on most platforms.
