Proud to be part of the second Severn Sounds Festival held at The Pavillion in the Park in Worcester 3-5 June 2016. Ethan was representing Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter as ceramic artist in residence, aiding and abetting families in their making.

Had so much fun working with the youngest festival goers attending the brilliant Just So festival over the weekend. For the past 5 years, Lottie and myself have provided sensory, exploratory and very, very messy clay play sessions for the under 4’s and their families. We hope you enjoy these marvellously mucky snaps from this year’s festival and of course a whopping great big thank you to all of you who came to visit us. Great to catch up with the regulars too!!
Sarah spent x2 Saturdays in early July in the Walled Garden in Ledbury providing pottery workshops as part of the town’s international acclaimed Poetry Festival. It is the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Families had the opportunity to collaborate on a giant terracotta T-Pot with each participant who dropped by modeling an Alice inspired piece of t-pot decoration.
This is what Sarah had to say: “The first Saturday we formed the shape and the following week we embellished it. It was nice to see so many people who helped build the structure on day one, return the following week to contribute to the artwork.”
We’d been aware of the two day festival for some considerable time but until this year, hadn’t had the opportunity to visit.
WOW! A great event and the sun shone down on record numbers of visitors strolling around the gardens taking in the stalls, demonstrators and charming gardens.
We challenged passers by to model a fairy, imp or elf which they could take away with them to dry and paint at home.
If you’ve yet to visit the house and gardens at Hellens, we can strongly recommend a visit this Summer – a truly magical and enchanting day out for sure.
A couple of weeks ago in half term I travelled to the brilliant Bilston Craft gallery in Woverhampton to facilitate children’s pottery workshops. The sessions were part of the touring Crafts Council show/event called ‘Acts of Making’
Lovely clay work performance piece by Clare Twomey Is it madness. Is it beauty.
