For those of you familiar with our work will know we have a busy summer of workshops and pottery sessions ahead of us. We will be sharing the many benefits of working with clay, not only from our idyllic Herefordshire studio, but out in the community at festivals and events.
We love getting out there and enjoy the challenge of working with large numbers of participants in fields, community halls and public spaces.
Here’s a list of public events we’ll be present at in the coming months. We hope to meet some of you on the campaign trail Summer 2017!
Hay Festival 27-29 May
Masters House Ledbury Gargoyles 30 May
Cheltenham Science Festival MakerShack 6 – 11 May
Field to Fork 10 May
Eldorado Music Festival Eastnor Deer Park 30 May – 2 June
The Great Ledbury Celebration – Market House 9 July
Eastnor Castle Flying Potter week 30 July – 3 August
Lakefest Music Festival 10 – 13 August
One of the highlights of our working calender is the amazing Just So Family Arts Festival held at Rhode Hall in Cheshire.
For the past six years we have coated some of the teeniest festival goers in thick slip and soft clay – some as young as 5 months taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.
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!!
