Turns out agricultural recruitment agents make for brilliant potters too!

As well as creating some mighty fine pots on the wheel, the group made a magnificent collaborative piece decorated in an agricultural style with modeled sheep, wheat and farmers!

The individual pots made on the potter’s wheel came alive in the last hour of the workshop as participants used their imagination and coloured underglazes to great effect.

Here’s what lead contact Caroline thought of the activity:

“I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for hosting the team yesterday – everyone had a fantastic time. Judging by the chatter in the office this morning, I think we even have a few who are eager to have another crack at it!

The set up you guys have down there is really impressive and especially the way you were able to lead the group through the process so everyone progressed at the same rate – it was all just really well put together, and all in all a great day out for the team.”

Thanks Caroline :)

Pottery team building event at Eastnor Pottery Herefordshire

Staff from the School of Biological Sciences, Bristol University descended on the Pottery in August, (all 18 of them) for a spot of pottery team building.

Participants built a collaborative jug, took turns on eight potter’s wheels and made some intricate pottery models before enjoying a buffet lunch in The Potting Tent Marquee.

osteopaths away day at Eastnor PotteryWe welcomed Churchdown Osteopaths to the Pottery a few weeks back for an afternoon of potter’s wheel  fun and creativity. The group was x15 members strong and everybody had plenty of opportunity to make pots on x8 potter’s wheels as well as creating some hand-built gems when they were resting from the wheels.

The West Midlands contingent of The National Farmers Union visited the Pottery in October for a spot of team building and creative play. The group spent an hour or so meeting in the Potting Tent (a unique conferencing suite if ever there was one!) before joining us in the  studio for the main pottery event.

The group made a ceramic crest, a clay coat of arms depicting agricultural aspects of the five counties. There were two representatives from Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire, each sub-team charged with a separate section of the crest. There was also ample time for everybody to throw a few pots on five potter’s wheels we’d primed for the occasion.

New skills discovered and everybody feeling relaxed and refreshed, the team headed back to their Telford HQ.

Last week we headed into Shropshire to deliver their ceramic masterpiece to be hung in their office – a permanent reminder of what can be achieved through teamwork.

Creative agency celebrate their 11th birthday at Eastnor PotteryPink Green celebrated their 11th birthday in a very creative and art inspired fashion here in Eastnor a few weeks ago. The Newbury based creative agency checked into the Pottery first thing to make a collaborative clay work before taking turns on the five potter’s wheels we’d supplied for their enjoyment.

Next, the team headed for Eastnor Castle for a spot of lunch and afternoon sketching, facilitated by OldAshArt
