It’s HOME LEARNING week here at Eastnor Pottery!

Over the next five days we are going to sign posting you to our fabulous and FREE ‘how to make pottery’ video tutorials over on our YouTube channel.

Each day we’ll be highlighting a different video and making technique:

MONDAY 18 January – Coil pot owl.

TUESDAY 19 January – Slab built house.

WEDNESDAY 20 January – Potter’s wheel.

THURSDAY 21 January – Pinch pot monster

FRIDAY 22 January – Pottery fish.

In the absence of a kiln, you can let your creations dry and then seal them with a mixture of PVA glue and water (50/50 mix) – a couple of coats should do the job. Once the PVA has dried, you can paint your creations with acrylic paint, or whatever you can lay your hands on!

Even if you don’t have any proper clay, the projects work well with play dough to.

Happy Making! Oh and if you get chance, we’d love to see what you get up to. Just send us a photo of your finished work to any of our social media platforms and we’ll share and comment on your creativity. We’re @eastnorpottery on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
