Busy Busy Bees

Busy bees day nursery visit Eastnor Pottery for teambuilding event

We had great fun working with this group of nursery managers from Busy Bees Childcare. The team get together on a regular basis and at Christmas, they schedule an extra special activity to mark the festive season. This year they chose to make pots at Eastnor Pottery on no less than nine potter’s wheels we provided for them.

The team were in great spirits and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of wrestling the spinning mud. I think we only had to use the naughty corner once! ;)

The ceramic results of their labour will be fired, glazed and returned  – serving as a permanent reminder of their creative and fun 2016 Christmas party.

Warming to clay

We had the pleasure of working with this lovely bunch from Hereford Heating Ltd a few weeks back. Talk about a case of ‘giving up the day job’!!! They were brilliant and displayed an amazing aptitude for spinning clay.

Fantastic tiles made at Eastnor Pottery by Mira Teambuilding participants

A team of 30 employees from Mira Showers visited the Pottery to creatively explore ideas about how individuals operate within an organisation.

The team had spent the morning at the office working with their Insights Discovery profiles to help them better understand themselves and their colleagues to improve overall team performance. 

After lunch, they made the short journey to  Eastnor Pottery to interpret what they had learnt about themselves in clay.

Each participant made and painted an individual tile as well as each taking a turn on the potter’s wheel.

Once the tiles have been fired and glazed, they will be hung in the Marketing department back at   Company HQ, as a permanent reminder of the teambuilding event and the importance of working as a group.

The afternoon was hailed a success and this is what Marketing Director Craig Baker had to say about their Eastnor Pottery experience:

“A huge thank you for such an enjoyable day yesterday.  The whole team was fully engaged and we have had some great feedback.  We are all looking forward to putting our installation together”
