Hen party season appears to start earlier and earlier here at Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter. No sooner had the tinsel been stowed, Helen and her band of merry hens descended on the studio to make ceramic keepsakes and pottery artyfacts!
We love this boomerang of one of the party goers. She was immensely proud of her creation – and quite rightly so – we think its lovely!
Other members of the party made owls, penguins and pencil pots. Check out this little video of their creations on Instagram.

When we tell people we do pottery hen parties they usually respond with something like “ Ooo I bet they make some interesting shapes!!” On the contrary, our group sessions are usually civilized affairs, filled with creative arty types enjoying the therapeutic benefits of modeling and throwing clay on the potter’s wheel. in fact, if you are doing pottery as your hen party activity then you are going to be a certain type of girl! That was until we met George and her party of merry gals….
There were only seven of them, but what they lacked in numbers they more than compensated with frivolity and laughter. We had so much fun!
They ladies appeared in Chesney Hawkes masks (a personal hero of bride to be George) and took to the wheels with enthusiasm, reveling in the comedic possibilities of centering the clay!
In amongst the hilarity the girls really got to grips with their technique with one of the more skeptical members at the start, thoroughly enjoyed herself commenting ‘That was great, I really really surprised myself”
The session concluded with the ladies treating us with a rousing rendition of Chesney Hawkes’ I am the one and only’ – a short clip can be found here. Everybody heralded the afternoon a resounding success.

When Rowy and her band of merry hens rolled up in their party van, the bride to be had absolutely no idea what they’d be doing. Such was the veil of secrecy surrounding the day’s activities, the response from Rowy was genuine and approving. After the squeals of delight had abated, she turned to us beaming and commented “My friends know me so well!”
The girls made some very creative coil pot creations as well as each taking a spin on the potter’s wheel.

We hosted our first ever pottery hen party over 20 years ago having been approached by a brides maid looking for a creative hen party activity for an arty hen.
We were (and still are) always up for a challenge and said ‘yes’ without too much hesitation. It just sounded like such an interesting, novel and fun preposition.
Little did we anticipate at the time, hen parties would become such a huge (and hugely enjoyable!) part of our workshop offer.
Here are a few photos from Claire’s particularly lovely pottery hen party experience we facilitated Autumn 2017. The girls made and painted coil pot goblets which looked stunning once they had been fired and glazed.
