Just So Festival Clay Babies!

Happy Clay Baby at Just So Festival with Eastnor Pottery and The Flying PotterHad 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!!

Mad Potter’s T-Party

Alice in Wonderland themed tea set for 150th anniversary of Louis Carol's bookSarah 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.”
